The plain bat emblem was brought back sometime during the time period of the Post-Crisis/New Earth Batman incarnation.
It was brought back for good during the "New Gotham" (2000 - 2001) period to be specific, up until that point the main comics were still very oval centric with the exceptions of a couple of storylines like Year One and Shaman.
