NO NO NOOOOOO!!! It was going to be THE game to get me through the Fall season. Say it ain't so!

There main competition is probably Assassin's Creed unity.

Makes sense because these guys have more to lose than Ubisoft consider they have a last gen version of Assassin's Creed. And there is no last gen version of Batman to fall back on.

If true they might aim for a January release date.

It's true from a gamers perspective this sucks pretty bad but from a business perspective it makes sense fall is stacked with games and the witcher 3 and arkham knight will both sell better now

MEH.
Batman Arkham series is way way way better than any AC game . AC can't beat Batman .

GusHasGas793d ago (Edited 793d ago )

Also, let's not forget that there are three huge games releasing just a week before Arkham Knight - Alien Isolation, Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor, and Dragon Age Inquisition. With all the huge competition, it really does make sense that they'd delay it. CD Projekt Red did the same thing with The Witcher 3 - there was too much competition, so they delayed it to Feb 2015.

I honestly wouldn't mind if Arkham Knight got delayed. Albeit I'm hyped for the game, but I have plenty of other games to play in October.

Edit:
Arkhamverse confirmed on Twitter that the game IS NOT DELAYED.

Competition is rarely a delay factor.

Plus, next gen is so dry with games that even both games out at the same time wouldn't matter.
Everyone would buy both.

In quality sure , but they do have to sell the game . WIth AC present on two different field and other big titles to hinder it and on two successful but relatively new consoles on the market ? It could be selling more like Arkham Origins than the previous two games , if not careful .

Either way , i'm down it one of those games move up and down a bit in release date . For some on October 7 alone that's already 3 game to purchase . i'll just hope it's not Batman

thorstein793d ago (Edited 793d ago )

Makes sense because the Developer Rocksteady most likely NEVER said it would be out in the fall.

Release dates often come from "suits" working for a publisher who has no inkling of what it takes to deliver software.

Ask anyone in the coding/ dev business if they ever have had a "suit" overpromise what they could deliver. I guarantee a poll of every coder/ developer would result in the following:

Do "suits" often overpromise what you could deliver? (please include everything from shipping dates, to in game options etc.)

Yes 100%
No 0%

Stop listening to suits.

EDIT: Nowhere on the Rocksteady website do we see a launch date for this game. Which begs the question: Is the game delayed if the developer never said when it would be launched? (Note: I said developer, not publisher.)

This happens every year. Get out of the way pf certain games. Last year it was GTA5, B4, AC4 and CoD.

This year it is CoD, AC Unity and Destiny.

Baccra17794d ago

That parity curse. It takes time to gimp the lead console so that the slower one has a chance.

Gotcha5793d ago (Edited 793d ago )

No way I was going to skip Destiny(not into that hype) for Batman and Alien Isolation.

MichaelLito79793d ago

What a shame if this is true. I was definitely amped for Batman game this year.

Utalkin2me793d ago

Im sure some other truly good games are coming out around fall season, no need to worry.

DaleCooper793d ago

I'm hoping so. If Batman really is delayed I may end up going with Dragon Age Inquisition, which is starting to look really good after its latest trailer.

showtimefolks793d ago

its good more time for development, this and witcher 3 needs to deliver. 2015 is sort of shaping out to be the best year for next gen games.

witcher 3 delayed
batman rumored delay
halo 5 rumored to be coming in 2015
Uncharted 4 most likely 2015

Hmm this and TW3 :(, I just brought a PS4, maybe I should have waited

looks like it be a year and a half after the release of next gen consoles that the actual next gen arrives

No I dont seem so annoyed about the annual release of the AC franhise

smashman98794d ago

Don't worry there's still the order, a new assassins creed, and potentially more to be revealed at e3

showtimefolks793d ago

smashman98

honestly i see the order not coming out in 2014, at the reveal event many gaming media members had major complains so i can easily see that being pushed back to 2015(hopefully at E3 we will find out for sure, i want ready at dawn to get as much time as they need because its their first AAA game on home consoles and the order 1886 is very interesting)

we also know next to nothing about drive club

E3 2014 will clear the air on many things. right now rumors are The last Guardian will be shown at E3 on ps4 build and with release date of Q1 2015(Imagine sony closing with the demo than showing release date)

raWfodog794d ago

I'm not gonna be getting my PS4 until this holiday season. There should be plenty of great games available by then to keep me entertained well into the new year.

Farsendor1794d ago

you would have stuck with the old fossils slow interface slow updates very slow installs? 3rd party games and cross gen games are more fun on ps4. cleaner picture with better online features

nope111794d ago

Not surprising if true.

porkChop794d ago

Wouldn't really bother me. There are so many great games coming out later this year. At least if this gets delayed to February/March it won't have much competition.
