Rocksteady has confirmed that Batman: Arkham Knight has suffered a further delay, but only a slight one.
The developer’s conclusion to the trilogy they started back in 2009 with Arkham Asylum will now release on June 23rd for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Rocksteady confirmed via a press release.
“We’re a developer that hates to make any compromises, so we are sorry to say this means it’s going to be just a little bit longer until you can play the epic conclusion to the Arkham trilogy,” said Sefton Hill, Game Director at Rocksteady. “As a reward for your patience and understanding, and to make the wait even more unbearable, we are pleased to whet your appetite with a new gameplay video of Batman: Arkham Knight.”
The new trailer, which you can view below, is pretty hefty, running at over 7 and a half minutes. We won’t spoil the contents at it contains some information sensistive to the story – so if you’re on a self-imposed media blackout, you might want to avoid watching it. More of the game’s combat is shown, as well as the new, larger version of Gotham City which Rocksteady has created for its third and final take on the caped crusader. Batman also looks decidedly more bulky in his new armor, while the Batmobile once again makes an appearance.
