Warner Bros. Games have just announced that they’re delaying Batman: Return to Arkham. They made the announcement via their Games forum, saying:
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. 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 sounds like they’re not happy enough with the game for it to be released at its expected date in late July. Batman: Return to Arkham is a remastered version of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City; the first two games in Rocksteady’s trilogy of Arkham titles. As well as those two legendary games, all downloadable content will be included and the game will run on the Unreal 4 engine on new generation consoles.
We won’t knock Warner Bros. for wanting the game to be perfect, but it’s hard to stay excited for Return to Arkham when there’s no expected release date anymore.
