After a disastrous debut on PC, Batman: Arkham Knight has been pulled from Steam as well as bricks and mortar stores. Rather than leave Iron Galaxy, the studio behind the PC version, to fix the mess, Rocksteady has its "best engineers" on the case.
On Twitter, Rocksteady cofounder Sefton Hill reiterated that the developer is serious about beating the game into shape, agreeing with the "decision" for the game to be pulled:
Totally supported decision to suspend PC version. We have our best engineers at Rocksteady working like crazy to help fix the issues ASAP.

That said, it looks like Rocksteady will be in an advisor role, with publisher Warner Brothers tasking Iron Galaxy with the lion's share of the work:
WBGames is working with the PC developer IronGalaxy to address the issues ASAP. Rocksteady will provide any support to get this resolved.2/2

Unfortunately, no timeline is provided for an update. On one hand, I'm sure players would welcome any sort of performance patch, but at the same time, one that did little to better the situation or worse, cause more problems, would just compound the angst.
