    If recent gaming history has taught us anything, it's that when WB outsources development, the result is always a disaster. So, good. I'm glad they're not even going to bother with a PC port. It would just be a tire fire.

    Not surprising its not coming out for PC, I think they pretty much destroyed their PC market for Batman games after the last disaster.
