Warner Bros. has delayed Batman: Return to Arkham a month before its original 29th July release date, with no sign of a new launch window. Announced on the WB Games forum, the delay will apparently give developer Virtuous Games - who recently helped port Heavy Rain to PlayStation 4 - more time polish the Batman Arkham bundle, which consists of Arkham Asylum, Arkham City. and all the downloadable content for both games.
After reviewing the progress of the project, the team at WB Games has decided to delay the release of Batman: Return to Arkham to give the team at Virtuous Games additional time to deliver a polished Batman Arkham game experience. We do not have a release date yet and will be sure to communicate that once we are sure the game will be ready. 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.
It's unfortunate that Batman: Return to Arkham has been delayed without a new release date, but given the popularity of both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, it's important that Warner Bros. gives Virtuous as much time as it needs.
