Batman: Arkham Knight hit with a three week delay

Those expecing Arkham Knight to be released in early June will now have to wait until late June. No biggie.

Batman: Arkham Knight has been hit with yet another delay as the official Batman Arkham Twitter account has revealed the game will now be released on June 23, 2015.

Arkham Knight was originally announced for a 2014 release when it was first unveiled in March 2014, but was delayed to 2015 just a few months later. WBIE then announced it would be released on June 2, but that date has now been pushed back by 21 days.

As of this time, neither WBIE nor Rocksteady Studios have revealed the reason behind the three week delay. Fortunately, this time it's a pretty short delay.

      i've been wondering if the arkham knight character was going to start being incorporated into comics after this game and if that had anything to do with all the delays. seems pretty weird to know this far in advance that they'll need 3 more weeks. gotta be something bigger going on eh?

        There's a stand-alone Arkham Knight comic currently being released (weekly?) that leads into the game.

        Batman's getting a shake-up in June, but I doubt that has anything to do with this. Either they're a bit behind schedule or they wanted to deconflict with some other release in that timeframe.

      do these games ever let you play as bruce wayne? i feel like that's a missingl element of these batman games.

      drive lambos and do swanky shit during the day and then turn into batman at night, or whenever it's needed.

      If this makes the game better at release i'm all for it. I loved AA and AC, and this is the first game in a long while that i've been so excited for that I ignore all of the media coverage on purpose because I want to be surprised on release day.

      Gods Damn it. I had two weeks off set for that release date.

      Well I guess I'm going to Disneyland now.

            True, although the amount of patches I've needed over the past 30+ years is astounding. So I still consider myself to be in beta.

      It worries me that the game may need even more time than three weeks, and that it's going to "have" to release then so they have something to show for Q2.

      Realllly looking forward to this game.

      Rumor that the first two Arkham games are getting a 1080p remastered release on console this Christmas.
