Arkham Knight Delayed Yet Again... But It Looks Fantastic

| 23 Mar 2015 11:11

Batman: Arkham Knight has been pushed back a few weeks, but if it's to make the entire game look like this trailer? No one will probably mind.

Well Batman fans, it's good news bad news time. The bad news is that Rocksteady Studios has pushed back Arkham Knight's release date once again. The good news is this delay isn't as severe as last time - it's only moving a few weeks to June 23, 2015.

"We're a developer that hates to make any compromises," Rocksteady game director Sefton Hill explained in a press release, "so we are sorry to say this means it's going to be just a little bit longer until you can play the epic conclusion to the Arkham trilogy."

In the meantime, Rocksteady has released a new gameplay video to tide fans over - and it certainly suggests Arkham Knight is worth the wait. Captured with PS4 footage, the video - titled "Officer Down" - follows Batman as he tracks Scarecrow's gang across the city, rescuing an injured police officer along the way. The video also showcases Batman moving quickly across the city using Batmobile driving/cape gliding combos, and fight sequences that Rocksteady has refined into an art form at this point.

Arkham Knight certainly isn't the first Triple A game to be delayed for last-minute refinements in recent months. Either way, I expect players are just glad they won't have to wait six months this time.
