    Many fans were and will be upset to hear that Batman: Return to Arkham was delayed indefinitely by WB Games earlier today. This announcement comes after the game's official announcement just over a month ago, with a release date of July 26 of this year. The game bundled both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City into one package, remastered for the next generation of consoles.

    "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," according to a post made by a WB Games representative. "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."

    With the boxset announced just last month after several prior leaks back in March, the game promised to feature "improved graphics, as well as upgraded models, environments, lighting, effects and shaders." The folk over at Virtuos were tasked with remastering the game for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and was priced at $49.99 before the game was delayed. You can check out the official trailer for the game here. For those who are unfamiliar with the Arkham series, it began with Batman: Arkham Asylum, which was developed by Rocksteady Studios, in 2009, with the much-awaited successor, Batman: Arkham City, being released just two years later, in 2011.

    Are you disappointed by this announcement? Or are you happy they are taking their time to polish the game to make it the best it can be? Let us know in the comments below!

    Yeah, I am somewhat excited for it, and at the same time I'm not. The gameplay is always the same.

    i have never liked any of these batman games. the gameplay is so boring even after 20 minutes of playing. the fighting is typical general button smashing and although the storyline can be cool, the game itself hardly warrants a full priced $50

    I don't even know why these people give out release dates just to delay. I get they want to make the game great and all, but how about doing that without lying about a release date. I understand stuff happens, but it's becoming all too common for developers and publishers to do this and it's rather very unprofessional in my opinion. I will not be getting the remastered Batman game now because of this.

    Why is Rocksteady not remastering it themselves?

      I agree with you, I was so disappointed with Arkham Knight in general.

      You forgot the "on PC" part.
