Microsoft Leaks Potential Release Date For Batman: Arkham Knight


Rocksteady’s conclusive chapter in the critically adorned Arkham series, Batman: Arkham Knight, is now due to launch on February 24th, 2015, according to a listing by Microsoft.

Although publisher Warner Bros. has yet to officially announce a release date for the threequel following its recent delay — which pushed the much-anticipated title off the 2014 calendar and into 2015 — this leak is in tune with Kevin Conroy’s statement saying that the game would release in the early stages of next year.

If this listing proves to be accurate, that would mean Batman: Akrham Knight will release within the same week as another highly anticipated threequel, CD Projekt’s The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. In tandem with the reveal, Microsoft is also offering customers a code for a $10 Xbox digital card should they choose to pre-order Batman: Arkham Knight ahead of time.

Billed as the “explosive conclusion” to Rocksteady’s trilogy, Batman: Arkham Knight will pit the World’s Greatest Detective against a plethora of famous villains, including Two Face, Scarecrow and the titular Arkham Knight (a character exclusive to the in-game universe). Additionally, the game also marks the debut of Bruce Wayne’s trusty, super-powered companion, The Batmobile, which will play an integral role in your quest.

While Microsoft’s information is yet to be confirmed by Warner Bros., we’ll be sure to keep you updated with all the information pertaining to Batman: Arkham Knight as it appears.
