The release date delay rumor in regards to the upcoming multiplatform software product, “Batman Arkham Knight,” may have been clarified. According to a report from Comic Book Movie on April 24, the representatives at DC Comics were simply misheard when announcing the release date window for the open-world action-adventure video game. Instead, they were referring to another title.
A computer-generated trailer was shown during the Wondercon panel, which resulted in a lot of cheering. During this time, the spokespersons apparently mentioned that “Batman Arkham Knight” would be coming later this year although some members of the audience weren’t able to hear the announcement due to the noise. As a result, it appears that the sequel to the “Batman Arkham” series is still slated to arrive before the end 2014.
The representatives at DC Comics were actually referring to a sequel to “Injustice: Gods Among Us” when talking about a video game that won’t be coming out this year. The first installment originally came out for the Nintendo Wii U, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 16, 2013. The ultimate edition was released later in the same year for the same platforms along with the Playstation Vita and PS4. Although the sequel has been confirmed, no other details have been announced.
“Batman Arkham Knight” is only slated to arrive on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One due to the technical limitations of the Nintendo Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360 and other platforms. The sequel features a much larger open-world setting when compared to the previous installment. Furthermore, the new Batmobile feature take up a majority of the hardware resources. You can find a screen showcasing the next-generation graphics from the official Facebook page of the series with the image added on top of this article.
“Batman Arkham Knight” is being developed by Rocksteady Studios and will be the last game developed by the company. The development team is planning to move on to another franchise in the future. The sequel is going to be published and distributed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for multiple regions.
