Batman: Arkham Knight's Batgirl DLC story pack A Matter of Family has been delayed on the PC, unsurprisingly given the game's high-profile problems on the platform.

"We apologise for the delay and only want to make sure that any content that we offer is up to the standards that PC players expect," writes publisher Warner Bros. Maybe they should have done that the first time around.
