Batman: Return to Arkham Delayed Indefinitely

The upcoming Batman: Return to Arkham, a bundle featuring enhanced versions of both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, has been delayed indefinitely by WB Games.
The announcement of the delay was made by WB Games’ Steve Grayson on the game’s official forums.
“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,” Grayson’s post read.
Grayson was unable to provide a definite release date or any clear indication of when the bundle would be released. He instead offered assurances that the delay would result in a better product.
“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,” Grayson said.
Despite the announcement, the bundle is still slated for a release on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at a price of $49.99.
Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City were first released in 2009 and 2011, respectively. Developed by Rocksteady Games, both titles were first released for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
The enhanced versions of the game, announced last month, will replace the Unreal Engine 3 with the newer Unreal Engine 4. This will result in updated graphics and additional gameplay improvements.
In addition, all previously released downloadable content for both games will come included. This makes Return to Arkham the most complete versions of both titles.
