Batman: Arkham Knight slides into 2015

"Awesome takes time"

Rocksteady has revealed that their final Batman game Batman: Arkham Knight will not be released this year after all.

Rocksteady's Dax Ginn stated on the delay, "Awesome takes time". This translates roughly into the usual, 'we're taking a bit of extra time to polish the game' which is fair enough.

Batman: Arkham Knight joins a long list of titles now aiming for a 2015 released from The Witcher 3 and Quantum Break to Mad Max and Ubisoft's ambitious online title The Division. Batman: Arkham Knight slides into 2015

This will probably be for the best as Arkham Knight was originally destined for an October release and October is now looking extremely crowded with Shadow Of Mordor, Driveclub and Evolve coming out then to name but a few. You can probably expect Battlefield: Hardline to toss it's combat helmet into the ring for an October release too.

Thanks Kotaku.
