Why So Serious?

Well sorry Batfans but, we've just got word that the game is delayed. The game was originally intended for June, but now sits in a window somewhere "later in the year".
Eidos Interactive and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment can today confirm that Batman: Arkham Asylum will be released at the end of summer 2009. This additional time will allow us to ensure Batman: Arkham Asylum is of the highest quality for gamers.</blockquote>

The delay may well be for the best. If the developers weren't entirely sure about a few kinks in the game, it's best to sort them out before hitting store shelves.
