Batman: Return To Arkham Launching In November ‘At The Earliest’ – Report

That's one hell of a delay.

Batman Return to Arkham

Earlier this year, after multiple leaks, Warner Bros. finally confirmed that they would be launching a collection of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, remastered for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The remasters were supposed to be extensive, bringing those classic games to the Unreal Engine 4.

However, just a while back, the collection was unexpectedly delayed ‘indefinitely,’ prompting many to question if the project had not maybe been too ambitious, and if it had not been called off behind the scenes. However, now Eurogamer is reporting that according to multiple sources, Return To Arkham is due out in November- at the earliest. This means that it could be out later too, in turn prompting speculation that whatever caused the delay with the game is a far more far reaching issue than may originally have been suspected.

Warner Bros.’ own official stance, on their part, has not yet changed. In a statement to Eurogamer, they said, “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.”

For now, Batman fans can check out the ultimately disappointing, but still fairly good, Batman: Arkham Knight on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
