batman_return_to_arkhamLast month it was announced that Warner Bros. would be remastering the original Batman Arkham games and releasing it as Batman: Return to Arkham. The game was expected to be launched next month but it seems that Warner Bros. has announced that the game will now be delayed.

To make it worse, Warner Bros. has delayed the game indefinitely as they claim that they do not have a timeframe for its release. “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.”

Presumably Warner Bros. decision was influenced by the company’s previous release, Arkham Knight, in which the PC version was so plagued with bugs that sales of the game had to be stopped so that the developers could fix it. We’re guessing that the company has decided that they’d rather not have a repeat of the past.

We suppose this is a bit of a bummer, but like we said, given the mess of Arkham Knight, we’re sure that Warner Bros. would rather face some heat over the delay than face the heat (and maybe potential lawsuits) over an unfinished game.
