Batman: Return to Arkham, which was supposed to come out this month, was delayed recently. Now sources are saying that the game might not make it out of the studio until November or maybe even early next year.
Eurogamer writes that multiple sources have confirmed the release window and expanded on just what’s going on.
According to those sources, the delay is apparently primarily about frame rate, though sources didn’t clarify on which platform. After the disastrous release of Batman: Arkham Knight on PC, it’s not a surprise that Warner Bros. wants to be a little more careful.
Return to Arkham is meant to be a remaster of the first two games in the series, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, rebuilt in Unreal Engine 4 to show off improved graphics and include all the extra content that came out for the games.
It’s easy to roll our eyes at the situation and say that this is just Rocksteady and Warner Bros. showing their ineptitude again, but I’d rather see the game released in top form after a delay than to see another game from the developer tank.
When the Batman: Return to Arkham does get a release date, we’ll have it here.
