Warner has pushed back the release of Batman: Return to Arkham from its original release date of July 29.
The collection, which features remasters of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, doesn’t have a new release date for PS4 and Xbox One. Warner explained why the collection is being delayed in a forum post.
"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," it wrote.
"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."
Of course, there are theories as to why the collection is being delayed. While the collection is supposed to feature upgraded character models, lighting, effects, and environments, NeoGAF users highlighted scenes in which the visuals actually looked worse than the originals. This extra development time may ensure that such issues are rectified before release.
Batman: Return to Arkham will be released at some point in the coming months on PS4 and Xbox One and will feature DLC for both included titles.
