Warner Bros. Games have confirmed that Batman: Return to Arkham, the HD box set of the first two Arkham games, will not be releasing on July 29.
The announcement came through a post on their official forums, detailing that they wanted to “deliver a polished Batman Arkham game experience.” No new release date has been given.
Here is what was said in the post:
“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.
In order to keep conversations around this topic in one place, please keep any discussions regarding this news in this thread. All other posts regarding the release delay will be locked and directed to this post.”
Officially announced back in May, Return to Arkham was set to release on Xbox One and PS4 at the end of July. There is still no word on a PC release. The collection features updated versions of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City with all their DLC running on Unreal Engine 4.
