BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT delayed to 2015, Batmobile revealed

Although originally scheduled for a late 2014 release, Rocksteady Studio’s third and final outing in Gotham City, Batman: Arkham Knight, has now been delayed to 2015.

“Awesome takes time,” said Dax Ginn, Brand Marketing Producer at Rocksteady Studios.

“The very simple reason for doing this is to ensure we are delivering the awesome level of quality that Batman fans and gamers expect from this, the final episodes and the epic conclusion to the Rocksteady Arkham trilogy.”

This is disappointing news for Bat-fans but at least you can still get your fix with Lego Batman 3, which is still slated for a fall 2014 release.

That’s not the only news coming out of Rocksteady Studios, though. They also treated us to a trailer showcasing a major feature of their upcoming game, the Batmobile. Complete with guns, cannons… and… riot suppressors… missiles? Wait, hold on just a minute. Why does Batman have so many guns on his car?

The question on the minds of Unleash The Fanboy’s staff however, is what could Rocksteady possibly be doing that required them to delay the game to 2015. We don’t believe that “very simple reason” PR business. So we sent in our best investigative reporter, Michael Moore, to Rocksteady Studios to get to the bottom of things.

When Michael Moore arrives outside the Rocksteady Studios building, he turns on his “UTF Vision” and surveys the area around the building for any hired muscle. His goal: reach the secret files room that contains Rocksteady’s secrets.

Gliding down from the closest building, he grapples onto a window ledge, and drops in through the window. He can hear two people talking from the next room over. He crawls through an air vent which leads him to a large room swarming with bald men armed to the teeth with assault rifles and explosives.

Turning on his “UTF Vision” again, Moore hangs from a ledge and surveys the room for the easiest target; he needs to take all of them out to reach the secret files room. He is in “Predator Mode” now, nothing can stop him.

Michael Moore waits for his prey to fall into reach as he performs takedown after takedown, sneaking up behind his foes and taking them out for the count.

One by one, his enemies fall and Michael Moore makes his way to the room. When he enters, all Moore finds is an old TV screen and some erratic writings on the wall.

The TV flips on. “HAHAHAHAHA!” cackled Dax Ginn, Brand Marketing Producer at Rocksteady Studios. “Hoo hoo hee hee. Oh no, Mooresy. You don’t want to spoil the fun now, do you?”

“Oh, no. We’ve got a long year ahead of us, HAHAHAHA HAHA!”

Keep an eye out for Batman: Arkham Knight sometime in 2015 for release exclusively on next-gen consoles and PC.
