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.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
