Linux and Mac Ports of Arkham Knight Quietly Canned

Linux and Mac Ports of Arkham Knight Quietly Canned

We've all done things that we wish we could forget about. For example, we once went out with a friend in the North of England and got a little worse for wear before expelling our lunch of spaghetti carbonara into his fish pond*. The fish would probably rather forget that happening certainly, but we would very much like to forget about it too. Alas, he keeps reminding us of the event.

Batman: Arkham Knight is Rocksteady Studio's metaphorical pond-honk. They probably wish they hadn't done it, and we assume that they wish they could forget about it and move on. The issues surrounding the Windows port of the game are long, drawn-out and well documented, leading to Warner Brothers eventually offering all players a full refund. It looks like they're ready to cut their losses with the title once more as a very curt announcement has been posted on Steam, stating that the planned Linux and Mac versions will not be seeing the light of day after all.

The short but sweet, two-sentence update on the game's Steam community page apologises to players and suggests that all customers who have pre-ordered and already paid for the game over a year ago, should be applying to Steam for a refund of the title. 

*The fish were fine by the way. No animals were harmed in the making of this news article.

Just by the state of the Windows version this doesn't surprise at all.

I imagine everyone involved simultaneously screamed "I can't take it anymore, Iron Galaxy screwed the coding up too much!"
