Arkham Knight delayed??

#1 Posted by MirkoS77 (7358 posts) -

I only have one thing to say about this if true.....

Ok, well. If it's a better game in the end, then I'm all for it I guess. I just hope if this rumor ends up confirmed it won't be holiday '15 or later. October seems far enough away as it is.

#2 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (11818 posts) -

maybe They're Finally gona add Multiplayer ! So yeah, in the end it just might be a better game.

#3 Posted by Jacanuk (4370 posts) -

Well, until its said officially its just a rumour, and the rumour sounds fake even from the start.

Its Rocksteady not Ubicrap.

Also its an unconfirmed rumour from someone who heard it from someone who perhaps heard it from someone whose friends brothers cousin was at a con where they allegedly should have said before even the company themselves that its delayed.

So please guys stop being gullible :D

Until Rocksteady confirms it, I won't believe it. As far as well know, the game is still scheduled to come out on October 14th. If they do tack on MP, it's not their fault, their bosses probably wanted it on there.

I hope not, but I wouldn't be surprised.

Actually Ubicrap's Multiplayer in the Assassin's Creed Franchise is actually quite the achievement, plus the added co-op to Splinter Cell. WB would do well to pay attention.

Too bad I won't be purchasing the game.

#11 Edited by Lulu_Lulu (11818 posts) -

Looks like there was a mix up.... Injustice is whats being delayed.

Ubisoft needs to stop being a douche with the mp and just stick with the singleplayer games which is acutally pretty some of the time.

#13 Edited by Lulu_Lulu (11818 posts) -

How was Ubisoft being a douche with the Multiplayer ? They tried it out once and people loved it. And the Single Player campaign is...... Look, I have issues with Open World games So.... Yeah.....

You know how in Hitman, the Target your suppose to assassinate has a schedule and is moving back and forth all over the level ?

I wan't that but at an open world scale, the Original Assassin's Creed was at the early stages of this concept but then they bailed. This whole thing of linear missions in small sections of the large map is starting to get old.

Open World Games should also be Open Ended. Otherwise whats the point ?

I can't pretty much guarentee Arkham Knight will have this problem too.

People loved what? Blacklist was a huuuuuuuge failure and it sold horribly.

But this is Rocksteady and a company like this that works 7 years on a game doesn't fall prey to some cheap scam like ubisoft and delays it for that :D

#15 Posted by Behardy24 (3898 posts) -

I can wait. I have build a bulk of a backlog and I an't going to be done with them anytime soon.

#16 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (11818 posts) -

@ Jacanuk

WB owns Rocksteady's Ass, they will fall prey to whatever cheap scam WB will tell them to! And Sales are a horrible way to gauge a game's quality... Other wise you better bow before the greatness that is CoD, its your logic... Go for it.

And it took them 7 years and thats all they got ? Its rather dissappointing.

You do realise Arkham Knight is just Arkham City with Vehicles. Atleast if it had Multiplayer implimented in their open world stucture then they would've truly accomplished something worth keeping this game exclusive to 8th Gen. Other than that....

You wana know why blacklist sold so poorly ? Because Conviction was the crappy one and people didn't bother with Blacklist because of that. Their own petty beef with a company has made them miss out on some genuinely good games..... Same applies to Activision and EA.

C'mon! Arkham city with vehicles? u serious? how can u even say that with just one CG trailer !

Rocksteady has confirmed that there will be no goddamn MP ! MP would ruin the experience !

@ mjorh

Lol. I didn't even see the Trailer, I haven't seen any trailers. I read the preview.... Pretty sure thats more informative than some stupid trailer.

Anyway this is just another case of people thinking multiplayer sucks just because they don't like it.

Yeah it is informative but it ain't enough to make a judgment !

You tell me how the hell they're gonna have to implement multiplayer in this game ... it is no GTA ....

@ mjorh

I know a Preview is not enough... But I'm a betting man.

GTA Sucks.

And Rocksteady still needs to get the Open World concept its self right before they can worry about Multiplayer that can actually make use of it. I know I sort of evaded your question but I sort of had to.... It was the only way.

:D , I bet that Arkham Night will end up as an awesome game!

Liked "the only way" !

#22 Posted by Metamania (11997 posts) -

In any case, I spoke to someone that has been to Wondercon and I was told, on good authority, that while Batman certainly made a big presence at the show, NO NEW information about the game was revealed, not even a 2015 release date. So the whole NEOGAF thing should be taken with a grain of salt until Rocksteady says otherwise.

#23 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (11818 posts) -

@ mjorh

Ofcourse it will.... Afterall Arkham City was an Awesome game. Now if only they made a co-op DC Puzzle Adventure Game spinoff then I'd be truly happy. Something like Portal, with The Riddler instead of Glados.

Did you know PC has a fuckton of Portal "clones" ?

Yeah , the thing is you're speculating that it's gonna be much more like Arkham City , u know you're taking "COD with mechs =Titanfall" approach to this , that's where i disagree with u , u could say such to Origins but this one i don't think so ......i don't think it's gonna be a clone of Arkham City , we're gonna have to wait for a couple of gameplay trailers to make a reasonable judgment about how the game will eventually end up ...it's too soon to even speculate IMO.

#25 Posted by Metamania (11997 posts) -

I also can confirm that the 2015 release WAS for an Injustice sequel, NOT for Batman Arkham Knight. Some sites were incorrect in their reports about that, so @MirkoS77, you can breathe a sigh of relief! :)

@ mjorh

Its natural for everybody to balls to wall excited for a new batman game. However... Somebody has to represent "The Dark Side" lest the hype gets out of control.

After, we don't wan't Arkham City + Gimmicks.

I sometimes love how you clearly want people to think you know your "gaming" but where it proves that its just hot air because you actually don't know jack shit.

First of all Rocksteady might be a sub of WB but you can be 100% sure that when they spend 7 years on one game, they dont answer to anyone but themselves. Which is also why we saw WB games make Arkham Origins.

And what is disappointing ? you clearly haven't seen much gameplay since nothing really have been released yet except for the Trailer which i know you haven't seen. So how do you know what Arkham Knight is going to be? but perhaps its time to stop being such a huge troll and try to post with substances instead of just posting one-liners and post that is just there to add to your counter.

Also Blacklist sold poorly because its a bad game and you clearly dont know your Splintercell, so no reason to argue over this.

Relax dude its just video games. You make it sound as if I made fun of your kids.

I'm not passing any of my ramblings as facts. You don't like the way I speculate ? Thats your problem.

Dial down the fanboy meter, you'l feel better. :)

my one liners are sweet and you know it.

#30 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (11818 posts) -

And Blacklist and Conviction were Awesome.... Thanks to co-op.

It already has a gimmick. Sort of. ..... The Open World design.
