'Batman: Arkham Knight' delayed to late June release

Posted on

Warner Bros.

Fans will have to wait just a bit longer to jump into the Caped Crusader’s next adventure.

Developer Rocksteady and publisher Warner Bros. announced today that Batman: Arkham Knight has been pushed by three weeks to a June 23 release date. The game had previously been scheduled to come out June 2 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

This isn’t Arkham Knight‘s first delay, however, as the game was originally pushed back from a late 2014 release to the June 2 date. 

Arkham Knight is the planned conclusion to Rocksteady’s trio of Batman: Arkham games (and a prequel developed by a different studio) that has Batman facing many of his greatest foes as they seek to take over Gotham. The latest entry in the series will be the first time players can drive the Batmobile around an open-world Gotham.

Likely to assuage fans’ concerns that this delay might spell trouble for the game, Rocksteady also released a more than seven-minute gameplay demo for the recently M-rated game.

Promising the footage was captured directly from a PlayStation 4, the video showcases some of Batman’s new moves in the game and how players can expect to drive around in style when Arkham Knight releases on June 23.
