One month ahead of its expected batlaunch, Warner Bros has announced that Batman: Return to Arkham, the Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City batbundle batremix for PS4 and Xbox One, won’t be out on 26 July. Batbummer.
“After reviewing the progress of the project, the team at WB Games has decided to delay the release of Batman: Return to Arkham to give the team at Virtuous Games additional time to deliver a polished Batman Arkham game experience,” moderator Steve Grayson explained on the company’s forums. “We do not have a release date yet and will be sure to communicate that once we are sure the game will be ready. We know this is disappointing news, but we feel the extra time will allow the team to create the best gaming experience for our fans.”
It’s… probably a good thing? Batman: Arkham Knight‘s release was an unmitigated batdisaster on PC, and Warner Bros doesn’t need that kind of bad batpress all over again. Batsomething else. I’ll stop now.
Batman: Return to Arkham includes Rocksteady’s first two Arkham games revamped in Unreal Engine 4, with “improved graphics, as well as upgraded models, environments, lighting, effects and shaders”, plus all DLC for R699.
