So what has been going on with Return to Arkham? The on again off again remaster of the series was suppose to be released this month, but then it was pushed back indefinitely. So when can we see a new release date for this remastered version of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City? Well Eurogamer seems to have some sort of inside scoop on the project, they initially seem to think that the game will finally make it out sometime this fall, but with so much uncertainty looming over the project some people over at Eurogamer even speculate the game might get pushed back to early 2017.
“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.”
With the failed launch of Arkham Knight and the negativity that still looms over that game, it seems that they are trying to make up for AK. Maybe? Who really knows what is going on at this point? We at Shanlian On Batman are surprised that this project hasn’t been scrapped, especially since there are rumors that they are working on a VR version of Arkham and they have another Batman game in the pipeline with Telltale too. If we hear anything in the meantime we will surely give you guys a heads up.
