Did you hear that? That was the collective cry of all the Batman: Arkham fanboys weeping because of Warner Bros.’ announcement today that Batman: Arkham Knight is going to be delayed until next year.

Why the delay?

According to Guy Perkins (Rocksteady Studios’ marketing manager) in a statement to GameSpot:

We just want to make this the best experience that we can, and that takes time. We feel that we have an absolutely awesome game in the works, and we want to make it as great as it possibly can be. We just need more time to do that. If we didn’t give the team more time to do it, then we would be releasing something that we weren’t happy with. We want to make sure we’re absolutely nailing it 100 percent.

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.

Perkins added,

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.
