I was hesitant to report on the leaked memo from EB Games Australia that has been making the rounds for a couple days now. Primarily because WB themselves had planned to issue a statement within the week about the current state of the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. Well, wouldn’t you know, it sounds like that leaked memo is prooooobably legit, as WB doesn’t expect the next interim patch to drop until August.
As an update, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Rocksteady and our partners are targeting an interim patch update for existing players to be released in August. This update will address many of the issues we listed in our June 27 update. We will provide additional details as we finalize that interim patch over the coming weeks.
We would like to thank you for your continued patience and invaluable feedback. We are continuing to monitor and listen for any additional issues and are driving towards a full update for everyone as quickly as we possibly can.

Meanwhile, some industrious young fellow by the name of Kaldaien has posted a hotfix on the Steam forums that helps resolve stuttering and other performance issues in the game, especially those encountered when running Arkham Knight at 60FPS. Having already tested the fix myself, I can say that it does actually fix a lot of the performance issues with the game, though some minor stuttering and screen tearing is prevalent. It still makes it much more playable, and that’s the most important thing.
If you want to try the fix for yourself, you can find more information here.
