Batman Arkham Knight has been delayed but only by a few weeks.
2-3 weeks isn't that bad. That's fine in my opinion. Now, delaying your game several months after initially announcing a fall release and then announcing another delay. Yeah, that's BS.
Still better than project cars... Hello inital 2013 release date and PS360 versions...
I like your style of sarcasm
Are you referring to the previous Arkham Knight delays ? Or perhaps Project Cars ?
Lol its only 3 weeks. Freakin Witcher comes out in May that game will last people for a while. As soon as folks manage to beat that they'll be on their way to pick up Batman. Hell The witcher will last even longer than that. This is great because The Witcher will take up May and and probably that first two weeks of June. RS needs room and doesn't want to compete with Witcher. Anyway good news for us because it'll be a better polished game. And good news for them because the move will further themselves from The Witcher to ensure sales.
are you saying boooo or booo-urns?
Aaaaaah excellent (in mr burns voice)
"As a reward for your patience and understanding, and to make the wait even more unbearable, we are pleased to whet your appetite with a new gameplay video of Batman™: Arkham Knight." I dont know why devs think showing us videos making us want the game even more is a reward for patience.. That's like the complete opposite!
It could have been for something else and simply an act of good faith, or to show us that they're not in development hell.
lol, I've thought this before, myself. Here you go, this should help... Take a look at more of the thing you really REALLY want but that we just told you that you will have to wait longer for.
i think i can wait.
delayed so that they can prepare the Arkham Asylum & Arkham City Remasters...
that's what I was thinking about
Delayed to get out of the line of fire from Metal Gear.
isn't MGS5 Sep 1? and this delay is only 20 days, it is still releasing in June...
Surely he meant to say Witcher 3
Thats exactly hat i was thinking. At least its justa few weeksno big deal.
Money Talks for batman remaster
The PR in this atrocious. Like Xbox one reveal bad
"We are pleased to announce our new release date - Batman: Arkham Knight will officially launch worldwide on 06.23.15..." is a very unbelievable statement lol so, yes you are right they need better PR. Exactly what are they pleased about?
Yey another one delayed.
I'd rather wait for quality than rush mediocrity.
I think that quote is rather old now. and lame!
Okay, enjoy AC Unity kiddo
I don't play ass creed, so I wouldn't know but it looks like you're missing the point big time here. I don't condone devs releasing broken games just to meet deadlines but I don't like it that devs announcing release date early just to delay it later and in this case, not just once! I remember a somebody on here said "game industry - the only place where delays are seen as a good thing" or something like that, WHICH, I think is true but still BS! just my two cents
I think we have seen examples already this gen that a delayed game(s) doesn't always mean it will be quality.
Not bad I have a brutal backlog of games to clear anyway.
Ahhh,perhaps now they will show something on e3 to prolong the hype even days before release.
People itch if it is released with bugs and people bitch if they delay it. With the amount of time a project like this takes, it isn't unreasonable to miss the mark by a few weeks.
I don't care, right now I'm like this... http://i.imgur.com/lXAflGW....
At this point it's almost funny,almost...
3 week delay isn't too bad I suppose, the silver lining here is that I can spend more time with Witcher 3!
I'm actually happy about this announcement. Rockstar want to give fans of the franchise the best game to end the series with so if it takes a few more weeks to give that to us then I am all for a delay. Also I wouldn't have been in the country for the previous release date and I have on order with Game.co.uk The Batmobile edition for PS4 and if anything happened about payment Game have a bad habit of cancelling the order without give people a chance to sort payment out. At least I can make sure there will be no problem.
9hours and no one thought to point this out? RockSteady. NOT Rockstar. Two very different companies.
Yea because remasters are apparently more important /s
I don't believe this delay has anything to do with the final game but has everything to do with the remastered game
Honestly, I would prefer they delay it then to release it with anything severe or game breaking. I'm sure there will still be SOME bugs, but I prefer the attitude of "it's ready when it's ready" rather than shipping it out quickly. Now obviously the ideal situation would be shipping out a game on time, without delays, and without bugs. But that's not necessarily realistic.
PLZ DELAY IT AS MUCH AS U CAN!! DONT COME OUT WITH SOME HALF ASSED GAME
agree 100% i would rather them delay this shit over and over again then it be plagued with launch updates and fixes...
i dont get the big deal over people griping about delays? if they delay it and it still needs fixes on the first day and its shit... complain then.. but i'll try and keep the faith in rocksteady because the other batman games have been phenomenal, this is one of the very very few games that im cautiously looking forward to, but after last years giant clusterf*ck that was broken games on launch.. its very cautious to say the least... but if they delay it and actually make it worthwhile i will be more then happy they have proved me wrong for ever being cautious at all
Its ok some games get a pass, apparently this is one of them.
Delay's are the new advertisement
