Warner Bros. made a new launch date for the PC version of Batman: Arkham City official by way of press release this morning. The release itself was centered around the console launch of the Dark Knight’s newest, but news of the PC release date was snuck into the last sentence of the opening frame.
Batman: Arkham City will launch for the PC platform on November 18th.
It was previously considered that Batman: Arkham City would see release on the PC on November 1st, less than two weeks after its console launch. This new–or, we suppose, official–delay pushes the game back by exactly a month. Batman: Arkham City released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 today.
If you’re a PC gamer and you find yourself feeling a little upset in regards to the additional delay, take solace in the promise Rocksteady made to you more than a month ago. Rocksteady Co-Owner Sefton Hill offered this to PC gamers towards the end of September:
“If you do have a super powerful high-end PC, you are going to see higher detail textures…You are going to see a more richly realised world…
…People will really love the PC version when it comes out. The wait will definitely be worth it.”
I’ve been with the game personally for around an hour so far and I’ll say this: Keep your chins up, PC gamers, Arkham City appears to be awesome so far. If you have to wait another month, so be it, the game will be even more gorgeous than I’m seeing right now. Then I’ll be jealous of you.
Batman: Arkham City has garnered a ton of critical praise so far, and we assume fans will likely react in largely the same fashion. Have you had a chance to don the tights and take to the streets of Gotham yet? If so, what do you think? If not, will you be snagging this game anytime soon?
