Batman: Return to Arkham Delay Confirmed by Warner Bros., No Release Date Shared

Batman: Return to Arkham delay

Although Warner Bros. confirmed the existence of Batman: Return to Arkham collection only last month, we had told our readers about it weeks before that. The collection was confirmed for a late July release, but now it appears that the developers want more time.

The development studio working on the Unreal Engine 4 based remasters, Virtuous Games, says that all three of the games need more polishing, which Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has decided to give them.

Although there still was a month remaining in the original release, both the publisher and the developers have been awfully quiet about the progress. This had already started to give off hints that we might not get the remastered versions of the Dark Knight games on time.

Any how, Steve Grayson of Warner Bros. confirmed the Batman: Return to Arkham delay on the official forums of the publisher, but for some reason he said that they do not have a new release date for us yet.

After reviewing the progress of the project, the team at WB Games has decided to delay the release of Batman: Return to Arkham to give the team at Virtuous Games additional time to deliver a polished Batman Arkham game experience.

We do not have a release date yet and will be sure to communicate that once we are sure the game will be ready. We know this is disappointing news, but we feel the extra time will allow the team to create the best gaming experience for our fans.

That is as vague as anyone can be at least in terms of the new Batman: Return to Arkham release date. Which, once again, makes me wonder if they are having some unexpected troubles in the development process.

In the past, we have been given some really amazing looking screenshots, as well as a comparison of graphics with the original games that show little or no graphical upgrades.

Let’s just hope that after the Batman: Return to Arkham delay, the final version is as good as promised, because it is true that at this point, a number of fans have said that whatever they have seen only shows more colors and that is it.

May be the actual reason for the delay was the very fact that at its current state, the improvements they have made to the game were not staying true to what a remaster should be.

The collection is being developed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
