God I hope not, releasing the same day at Witcher 3?

Don't do that to us gaming gods!

On the bright side, I could skip Batman and get it a couple of weeks later and maybe save a few bucks

Only Microsoft would be so stupid to release them both on the same day!
secretcode  +   59d ago

No yeah because Batman is Microsoft's game and they choose the release date? I get wanting to blame a company for something, but at least blame something that would actually make sense.

I'll get Batman and skip Witcher 3 for now.
I couldn't get into Witcher 2. It's a pretty game though...

Isn't WB publishing Witcher 3 in NA?
LAWSON72  +   59d ago
Only NA. They are only responsible for marketing and distribution, and I seriously doubt they get to decide launch when it is released digitally published by CDPR and published by like 4 others around the world.

You know you don't have to buy games on release day right? In fact you might find it cheaper, later.
EvilCackle  +   59d ago
It would be a rough week. Neither game looks like it's going to be short.

If February turns out to be like October this year then someone help us all.

If this is true then The Order has officially been eclipsed by Arkham Knight/Witcher 3...Wonder if Kojima will throw MGSV in their to totally murder any chance of Order selling well.

I have a strong feeling Phantom Pain will come out in Q2

Witcher 3>batman>the order. The order its no more than a rental the game its going to be 4 to 6 hours I bet. The witcher 3 and batman are open world games are going to be great.

batman - yeah a yearly game reskinned with a bigger map

The witcher 3 - Is pretty much a new ip on the playstation platform since its the first game to appear on it

Somehow I doubt they are going to eclipse the order on ps4 anyway...

the order will sell more than titanfall did on the xbone thats for sure!

Wtf does the order 1886 have to do with this?? You gamers..sigh so embarrassing to be one now a day's

SMH it's a shame
LAWSON72  +   59d ago
Its kind of obvious, it is expected around the same time in Feb. This is its competition, so I dont see how it has nothing to do with the discussion.
djplonker  +   59d ago
Yeah and the next cod will sell more than halo collection and halo 5 put together....

It might be a competition but this is not exactly the article to be discussing it on especially when its so far from launch!

"Yeah and the next cod will sell more than halo collection and halo 5 put together.... "
Okay? You people whine about going off topic so you talk about COD and Halo. Good job! /facepalm

As I said and I stand by it, I think it is absolutely fair to bring up The Order this is its Feb competition. It is not like the fact that The Order will be destroyed by Witcher 3 and Batman should be ignored, neither should Sunset Overdrive getting crushed by the motherload that is Sept-Nov but that is actually off topic in this discussion and irrelevant because it does not come out in Feb.

Also if by beat you mean both Halos against one CoD entry on Xbone only, I think that is quite a bold claim.

What does 'competition' have to do with us as gamers? That's the point. Some of these people genuinely want The Order to fail. And that is the problem with the gaming community today, and it is why it has nothing to do with the topic. Derailed as usual.
MrCherry  +   59d ago
Dont play games or stop crying.
KwietStorm  +   58d ago
Embarrassing is a good word.
MatthewBandeira  +   59d ago
Why would Warner Bros. release Batman: Arkham Knight and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on the same day in North America? Plus, there is an interview where Kevin Conroy says Arkham Knight is coming out in January.

Seriously that some people think The Witcher 3 will sell more than Batman?
CawMasterX  +   59d ago
Arkham Knight will probably come out before Witcher.
assdan  +   58d ago
These rumors are never true. I don't know how many times I've seen a store put up a release date that's wrong.
