Batman: Arkham Knight has been delayed until some point in 2015, moving the original release date of October this year, as Rocksteady feel more time is needed to bring the experience audiences deserve, and not the one they would get in the autumn. Guy Perkins of Rocksteady has spoken about the delay, explaining that it would be a disservice to release it earlier than it being ready.
“We just want to make the best experience we possibly can and we need more time to do that. I think what we’ve shown so far is a super ambitious project and we just want to make sure we are giving Batman fans and gamers the best Batman experience that we can possibly deliver and that just takes time. I think we would be doing fans a disservice if we didn’t spend the time on the title.
“I think it’s just a case of we just want it to be really great. There are challenges inherent with moving across these new platforms but we always envisioned the game on that new hardware.”
Arkham Knight will not be releasing on the last gen due to the scope of what Rocksteady will be including within the game. Here’s hoping we get a new release date soon.
