In other news about Arkham Knight's PC version, Warner Bros. recently announced that it has abandoned plans to introduce dual-GPU support.
The PC version has seen its share of setbacks. The game originally launched alongside the PlayStation 4 andXbox One editions in June 2015. However, it was marred by technical troubles that were so severe that Warner Bros. removed the game from sale. It was reinstated at the end of October 2015 with a free game offer to make up for the issues, but problems persisted.
As a result, Warner Bros. announced an unconditional refund program.
