Rocksteady Studios announced today that the video game sequel Batman: Arkham Knight will not be released this fall, as originally planned.  Instead, the game’s release date has been pushed to a TBA date sometime in 2015.  The fourth main game in the Batman: Arkham series, Arkham Knight takes place one year after the events of Batman: Arkham City and finds the titular superhero squaring off against Scarecrow, who has united Batman’s enemies in a plot to finally kill The Bat.  The highly anticipated game was scheduled for release on October 14th, where it was poised to be one of the flagship games of the next-gen consoles Xbox One and PS4.

Hit the jump for more, including the reason for the delay and a new trailer for the game, which reveals the Batmobile Battle Mode.

Speaking with Gamespot, Rocksteady Studios marketing manager Guy Perkins said the game’s delay is due to a concern of quality:

“We feel that we have an absolutely awesome game in the works, and we want to make it as great as it possibly can be. We just need more time to do that. If we didn’t give the team more time to do it, then we would be releasing something that we weren’t happy with. We want to make sure we’re absolutely nailing it 100 percent.”

As a fan of the game series and someone who’s still waiting for the prices of the Xbox One and PS4 to come down, this development is fine by me.  Watch a new trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight below.
