Batman: Return To Arkham Delayed With No New Date Confirmed

Warner Bros has announced via its Batman forum that the Return To Arkham collection has been delayed from its July 29th date to an unknown point in the future. The delay comes following a review of the state of the collection that Virtuous Games is working on, and it has been determined more time is needed to polish both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City for current gen consoles.

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.

Batman: Return To Arkham was revealed in May following months of leaks and speculation.

  1. So now we are having delays on remasters too?

    How the [email protected]*k are these developers going to cope with the Neo and Scorpio if they can’t even get this generation right?

    • PS delays on a game to game basis don’t bother me. But the rising trend of it happening is definitely worrying and surely only going to get worse?

    • Part of the problem is likely with the release dates that set up these kind of expectations. It’s never a clean ride through a game’s development and there are going to be blips in progression, so I think the devs/publishers do it to themselves when they ambitiously set a release date that doesn’t give reasonable leeway.

  2. I read that the graphics are horrendous…real bad…

  3. The graphics were significantly worse than the last gen originals, so hopefully this delay can sort things out.

  4. Damn polish – taking all our games!

    ;-)

    • Haha! That did make me chuckle. :)
