Fans of the caped crusader will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on Batman: Arkham Knight, with developer Rocksteady confirming yesterday that the title has been delayed until 2015.
Speaking to The Escapist, Marketing Manager Guy Perkins said, "We just want to make the best experience we possibly can and we need more time to do that."
"I think what we've shown so far is a super ambitious project," Perkins continued, "and we just want to make sure we are giving Batman fans and gamers the best Batman experience that we can possibly deliver and that just takes time. I think we would be doing fans a disservice if we didn't spend the time on the title."
When asked if the delay was to do with the difficulty of developing on next-gen hardware, he was non-committal. "I think it's just a case of we just want it to be really great," he said. "There are challenges inherent with moving across these new platforms but we always envisioned the game on that new hardware."
Batman: Arkham Knight, the third installment in Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy, was originally set to hit PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year.
