Batman: Arkham Knight gets 2015 release, new screens and Batmobile vid

Batman Arkham Knight

The next Batman Arkham game sadly won't be out this year as was originally expected. To make up for the wait Warner Bros have released some new media.

It appears earlier rumours of a delay to Rocksteady's Batman Arkham Knight are true. Although nothing has been said since and it's currently unclear as to the cause, a release date next year has now been given by Warner Bros. Suffering the same fate as big AAA games the likes of Tom Clancy's The Division the delay to the new Batman game leaves only EA Sports UFC and 2K's Evolve outstanding as next gen only cross-platform releases this year.

Assassin's Creed: Unity is set for next gen only and may well get a release date this year but we'll have to wait until E3 at least before we hear anything more on this.

Fans of the Bats will be able to play the new Lego Batman game coming this year

Some compensatory screens and a new video have been circulated by Warner Bros to make up for the Arkham Knight wait. One of the screens below is giving a good look at Batman's new rival the myserious figure of Arkham Knight himself.

The video below provides a closer look at the new Batman game's hottest property the Batmobile, which going a little against the grain as far as Batman's no kill policy goes is kitted out with an arsenal of weapons. The Batmobile can transform into a tank and has 60mm cannons, a Vulcan Gun, a missile launcher, a riot suppressor, and more.
