Well known for his vocal talents in the Arkham games and the Batman Animated series, Kevin Conroy (the voice of The Batman) did a little interview with the guys over at Groovey.tv. During the interview they discuss the fan base and how Kevin originally got onto the role. Near the end of the interview, the topic of Batman: Arkham Knight comes up and Kevin Conroy had this to say:

It was supposed to come out in January, we’ve been working on it for a year and a half, its still not done. So its going to come out next January.

View the interview in its entirety below, the game is brought up near the five minute mark.

Good stuff. The first next gen multiplat to hit the market.

Waste of talent. Rocksteady should have been making a dark and gritty Ninja Turtles game.

Dragon Age is coming October 7th, Arkham is coming in 2015. So you don't have to worry

That wouldn't be so bad if it was being released in January.

No it wouldn't, it would suck if it turned out to be delayed even further

@The_Last_Ride: I watched it again. Perhaps he meant to say it was coming out in October but now it's in January 2015? He might have made a mistake?

I don't see the game being delayed until January 2016.

The sooner, the better.

A game delayed is a disappointment once; a bad game is a disappointment always.

I'm not holding my breath for this to be released anytime soon. Late next year is my prediction.

That would be pretty kewl, but its not a waste of talent. Arkham games have been really good.

Kevin's normal voice sounds more like 60's batman and his 'dark knight' voice fits the dark knight perfectly.

one of the most popular super heroes out there.... vs... some of the tackiest dead super heroes out there? hmmm no... I wouldn't call it waste of talent... more like smart.

@MBirdy88: I'm guessing you're a Batman fan and I hurt your feelings. Sorry about that but it happens. While the Turtles were basically dead for a long time, they've been very relevant the last couple years mostly due to the Nickelodeon cartoon. They've also had a resurgence in the comic book sector. Lastly, they've got a new movie coming out Aug 8th by Michael Bay. The newest trailer actually gives us long term fans hope that the movie will be good.

And yes, the Turtles are my favorite heros out of all of Marvel, DC and others. They have been since I was nine and I'm now 33. My best bud has always kept me in the Batman loop though as he was his favorite. I know my lore, but I got board of the Batman games after the second. I think it's time for the studio to move on. I'm a realist though and know I'm but one person and have no control on them.

fair enough, nah im not hurt... a change would be good... I would rather something like the avengers though. good luck with the movie... michael bay destroyed transformers :S so again with the realist scenario I'm not sure what gives you hope.

@MBirdy88: While the redesign of the Turtles for the new movie is.... bad... the new trailer gives a glimpse that the Turtles individual personalities are intact. The story has potential as well.

Either way, it can't be as bad as the third live action movie from the 90's.
