Batman: Arkham Knight Mac and Linux canned

Warner has cancelled the Mac and Linux versions of Batman: Arkham Knight.

"We are very sorry to confirm that Batman: Arkham Knight will no longer be coming to Mac and Linux," the publisher said in a post on Steam.

"If you have pre-ordered Batman: Arkham Knight for Mac or Linux, please apply for a refund via Steam."
