Batman: Arkham Knight will release globally beginning June 2, 2015, Warner Bros. has announced. The game will release on PS4, Xbox One and PC simultaneously.
THAT is LATE...was expecting sometime march
It's worth the wait. And damn, that Batmobile statue looks nice, it's gonna cost a good amount of money though
I know right £169.99 God knows how much more people in the UK are paying for it compared to the US. I thought £139.99 tops. It better be bloody big then for the price. Not to mention I wouldn't want to buy it then see that they are selling it separately in the future. I would want it to be exclusively to the collectors edition. They could of thrown the Season Pass in for that price. I mean come on.
It's gonna be well worth the wait. Not only is it smart to avoid losing sales to the flood of games in the coming months, but they clearly want more time to make it the best Batman they could make. No game should be rushed. Just be patient, guys. Plenty to keep us busy until then.
That's fabulous News... rumors had it releasing in Feb next year... I was thinking Holy Crap... Bloodborne, the Order, The Witcher 3, Dying Light... :( Gives the Wallet sometime to breathe
Yes it's very late but I'm actually glad that it's releasing so late, I wouldn't play it earlier anyway due to the other spring releases. Now they can polish the game even more, I like that... if only Dying Light, The Witcher, The Order:1886 or Bloodborne would get that treatment as well :S
it will be in good time for the new Nvidia GPU's tho :D im happy that the game is released so late (ofc i want to play it right away) but more polish can only do this game good and with stronger GPU's on the market aswell the game can run smoother at that high quality.
I was expecting February myself. I actually thought it was already announced for February for some reason, maybe because of all the potential GOTY's that month has alone.
With Witcher 3 and MKX releasing in Q1 2015 .. i say it's a good date at least for me.
How many other games releasing in June ? They shouldn't have much competition and I'm assuming it's to go along with a Summer Movie.
I'm glad it's that late , given the constant flood of games starting feb .
but then again - no summer drought next year (hopefully).
I think they honestly announced this game early to help with next gen sales.....I could be wrong though because Arkham games scream quality....well the Rocksteady ones do at least. Regardless, I'm stoked for this one and now that the coast is clear for it (no other games that summer catch my eye yet), I'll play nothing else when it comes out.
First I was like crap it's like a whole year almost thought it would be sooner , but then I realized it's rocksteady cramming it full of content like it's there last batman game so I will gladly wait a bit longer. I hope they do a game of the year edition sooner rather than later though
Hope they do Superman next. When (if ever) was the last great Superman game? With the Man of Steel movies I expected one to be released by now.
Good gawd, my life is over. Argh. At least it'll be during my 6 weeek break from uni.
Well, there goes summer.
Gives my wallet some breathing room
WTf this article states as if no release date has previously set, which I thought was early Feb as stated on the site I order my games from. So it's been delayed then. Why not announce games only when you're 100% sure of their release date FFS!
They never confirmed the February release..it was a rumour..
Ah ok my bad. The retailer has adjusted it to TBA, whereas previously it was 7 Feb . Well whatever they need go do to perfect it then, I'll just have witcher, 1886 and bloodborne to keep me busy till then
Maybe they wanted to help sell more PS4 and XB1's...
Rocksteady is building a new game after that plot was leaked. They could not release the game after that whole debacle. Rocksteady's reasoning for delaying the game was to polish the game this is the reason why rocksteady has not released any gameplay because they knew they will had to build a new game
In less than a year? No. You are completely wrong. The leak was fake. Although it was a good story, there were too many things that still gave it away as a fake.
I've seen Gameplay
This paves the way for me to play Witcher 3. I was worried both games would be coming out around the same time.
That's a long ass delay, I thought it was gonna come out in February or something but June? That's a long wait.
Comes out exactly on my birthday. Looking forward to this
A June release date? That can't be right, games are supposed to release early or late in the year. You're supposed to fill up only a few months, instead of spreading out the games. /s
Meh I am done with this you killed my parents now I wear a cape crap .
June 2nd is a long way away from now. Any further slippage and it will be a holiday game next year. Release dates > 6 months out are estimates. for a game to be ready it has to be decently playable 6 months before release, and we have yet to see that with this game.
This is great! A game for the summer.
I feared a February release. I'll already be busy with Bloodborne and The Witcher 3. I'm actually glad it will be released during the summer. There's never anything to play during those months and I'll be glad to play Batman. It also means the dev will get more time to finalise the game.
It was already using Unreal Engine 3 (last gen). You can't really downgrade much when the tech is already that old...
hmm well see i just don't see why its delayed for some many months...
Bummer,but that's better for me.I was going to buy BloodBorne only in Feb.
That is ok but as long as it turns out to be best Batman game i personally can wait :D
This is all good if this just means more combat challanges, riddles, etc. to solve =D I trust Rocksteady. I'm surprised, though. The game looked stunning from what they have shown!
Wow so far away... BUT This is Rocksteady. Neither of their Batman games or DLC was bad at all. The delay will definitely make it a better game. AND It will be during the summer drought. Well I know what I'll be playing next summer!
