According to Warner Bros. in an official statement on the forums, Batman: Return to Arkham has been delayed from its original July 29, 2016 release date because it needs “additional time.”
“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,” said WB Games’ Steve Grayson.
“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.”
Batman: Return to Arkham was originally announced back in May following numerous leaks. The boxset will feature upgraded graphics, character models, environments, effects, lighting and shaders. It will surprisingly consist of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City and all of their DLC content and GOTY edition bonuses, but won’t include Origins or Arkham Knight.
Without a new release window in sight, we have to wonder if WB plans to add more to the package to sweeten the deal. Hopefully, we’ll learn more soon.
