Batman: Arkham Knight delayed, releases new trailer

Fans that are waiting for the new ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ installment will have to wait just a little bit longer for the game to release. The developers confirmed today that the game will now launch worldwide on June 23, 2015. In a statement released earlier today, Rocksteady Studios said, “We’re a developer that hates to make any compromises, so we are sorry to say this means it’s going to be just a little bit longer until you can play the epic conclusion to the Arkham trilogy.”

Although it may be a hard pill to swallow, we suspect that gamers will be happy to wait for a completed game, as opposed to one filled with bugs. The company went on to say, “As a reward for your patience and understanding, and to make the wait even more unbearable, we are pleased to whet your appetite with a new gameplay video of Batman: Arkham Knight.”

In the end the game will release at the end of June, so gamers will have a long summer-break to enjoy the new Batman installment on their product of choice. The company thanked fans in the statement as well saying, “Thanks so much from everyone at Rocksteady for your continued support. We are working as hard as we can to make you proud.”

Batman: Arkham Knight brings the award-winning Batman: Arkham trilogy from Rocksteady Studios to its epic conclusion. Developed exclusively for the new generation of consoles and PCs, Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady’s uniquely designed version of the Batmobile. The highly anticipated addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman: Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City. In this explosive finale, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city that he is sworn to protect, as Scarecrow returns to unite the super criminals of Gotham and destroy the Batman forever.

Batman: Arkham Knight is based on DC Comics’ core Batman license and will be available on June 23, 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
