Warner Bros. Interactive’s Batman: Return to Arkham will now release in November, according to sources close to Eurogamer.
That’s a conservative estimate, too, with the outlet noting that the current-gen remaster won’t launch until November “at the earliest.”
In the works at porting house Virtuous Games, major framerate issues were said to be the key reason behind Warner’s decision to postpone Batman: Return to Arkham indefinitely. Plus, considering the sorry state of Arkham Knight at launch, the publisher will be wary of burning any more bridges with Rocksteady’s prestigious series.
So, will we be holding out until November before donning the cape and cowl once more? Until Warner Bros. releases an official update, the publisher’s stance on the matter remains the same as before:
“We do not have a release date yet and will be sure to communicate that once we are sure the game will be ready,” Warner Bros said at the time of the game’s delay. “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.”
Once penciled in for launch on July 29, Batman: Return to Arkham has officially been delayed indefinitely.
