Batman: Arkham Knight isn't coming to Mac or Linux

Batman: Arkham Knight can't save Linux and Mac users from the game not coming to them.

Mac and Linux users are probably weeping at the announcement that Batman: Arkham Knight isn't going to come to their platform. The announcement was posted on Steam by the developer on February 3rd. It reads:

We are very sorry to confirm that Batman: Arkham Knight will no longer be coming to Mac and Linux. If you have pre-ordered Batman: Arkham Knight for Mac or Linux, please apply for a refund via Steam. 

There is no mention of why this has happened, but you can imagine players are not happy. The Steam page is filled with angry commenters blaming WB (Warner Brothers), alongside the usual sarcastic remarks.  

If you aren't familiar with the game, it's an action-adventure open world game. The story follows Scarecrow, the Arkham Knight, and Deathstroke -- who plan to release a toxin over Gotham City on Halloween night and unmask Batman. It has many other villains, like Harley Quinn and the Penguin, alongside other heroes, like Nightwing and Barbara Gordon. 

Though the game has been canceled for Mac and Linux, fans on those  platforms still have the Suicide Squad movie to look forward to, along with a Telltale Batman game coming sometime in 2016.

If you need some Batman in your life right now, though, you can always try to build the Arkham Asylum out of Lego bricks like this guy did.


Happy to be a gamer!
