The awful port of Batman: Arkham Knight has a new episode thanks to the promised new patch which will arrive in the next couple of weeks, and this new patch is already being controlled by the quality testing department of Warner Bros.

This patch will not enable the sale of the game through Steam, or return to the sale of physical copies, but a small treatment for those who already have the game and deserve better performance.

Neither Warner Bros., Rocksteady not even talk about a release date. The “couple of weeks” may end up being anytime September, so we recommend keeping expectations low. We just need to quit working properly.
