Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment has announced that Batman: Return to Arkham is back on the schedule. The remaster of the first two Batman games by Rocksteady, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, is coming to PlayStation and Xbox One players on October 21, 2016.
The title was originally planned for release at the end of July, but the publisher decided that the game needed a bit more time in the kitchen and delayed it indefinitely. It's likely that Warner Bros wants to avoid the issues that happened for the PC launch of Batman: Arkham Knight.
"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 Virtuos Games additional time to deliver a polished Batman Arkham game experience," said WB representative Steve Grayson at the time of the delay. "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."
Warner Bros also released a video of the PlayStation 4 versions of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, next to footage from the PlayStation 3 version of both games.
