If you were getting all excited at the thought of driving the Batmobile this year, you’re going to have to hold your horses and steel yourself for some disappointment: Batman: Arkham Knight has been delayed to 2015.
That’s the latest from Rocksteady, the studio behind the game, who just announced the delay. They at least provided a good reason:
“We just want to make this the best experience that we can, and that takes time,” Rocksteady Studios marketing manager Guy Perkins told GameSpot. “We feel that we have an absolutely awesome game in the works, and we want to make it as great as it possibly can be. We just need more time to do that. If we didn’t give the team more time to do it, then we would be releasing something that we weren’t happy with. We want to make sure we’re absolutely nailing it 100 percent.”
On a related note, check out the brief teaser video below showing off the Batmobile, the main reason I’m excited to revisit Rocksteady’s gritty world, this time in an open-world setting that can accommodate the Batmobile’s awesomeness:
Arkham Knight was originally going to ship this year for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Expect much more Batman news to come from next week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.[Source – Gamespot]
