Batman: Arkham Knight PC Will Be Available Again "in the Coming Weeks"
Warner Bros. indicates the improved re-release will be out soon.
The new release period was stated in a press release detailing upcoming DLC for Rocksteady's third Arkham title. A line towards the end of the document mentions the PC version will be re-released soon, but doesn't specify exactly when.
The PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight was pulled from store shelves and sales of the title on digital platforms such as Steam were suspended. This was due to significant graphical and performance bugs and glitches.

"We want to apologize to those of you who are experiencing performance issues with Batman: Arkham Knight on PC," publisher Warner Bros. said at the time. "We take these issues very seriously and have therefore decided to suspend future game sales of the PC version while we work to address these issues to satisfy our quality standards."
In the days following the release of Arkham Knight on PC and the surfacing of its numerous technical issues, it was revealed the port was developed by a small external team while principal developer Rocksteady focused on the console versions.
Rocksteady released a statement saying it would work on remedying the port's problems and, as promised, a patch addressing many of its issues has since been released. The update fixes frame rate hitches, optimises VRAM usage, improves GPU performance, cleans up textures, and more.
Batman: Arkham Knight's next major expansion is Catwoman's Revenge, which is set after the events of the main game and places players in the feline boots of Catwoman "as she seeks her revenge on Riddler."
