Why the delay?
According to Guy Perkins (Rocksteady Studios’ marketing manager) in a statement to GameSpot: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/batman-arkham-knight-for-xbox-one-ps4-and-pc-delayed-to-2015/1100-6420046/
Perkins went on to say that the reason Batman: Arkham Knight won’t be coming to previous-gen consoles is because they’re trying to use the full capacity of the next-gen consoles, and logistically things couldn’t be done on the old consoles. One such example is that Batmobile, which requires the city and its roads to be redesigned in order make the Batmobile feel at home. Another example is the detail on the character models.
Gotham City is five times larger than the game world of Arkham City. And by virtue of having a bigger city, you need more memory and more horsepower to just make that happen.
So, it looks like Rocksteady has the end-user clearly in mind by delaying Batman: Arkham Knight’s release.
We’ll keep you posted if further details emerge.
