Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that Batman: Arkham Knight will launch for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on June 2, 2015. The game was expected to be released this fall, but Warner Bros. delayed it to next year right before E3.

Back then, developer Rocksteady Studios said it would use the extra development time to ensure the final product is as great as it possibly can be. "If we didn't give the team more time to do it, then we would be releasing something that we weren't happy with," Rocksteady said at the time. "We want to make sure we're absolutely nailing it 100 percent."

Along with the news of the release date, Warner Bros. announced two Batman: Arkham Knight collector's editions, the contents of which are listed below, courtesy of Warner Bros.

Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition for consoles ($200)

  • Custom Art Book: 80-page, full-color art book showcasing the concept art of Batman Arkham Knight
  • Limited Edition SteelBook: unique SteelBook case and game disc
  • Comic Book: Limited Edition DC Comics Batman: Arkham Knight #0 Comic Book
  • Exclusive Character Skin Pack: three unique skins from DC Comics - The New 52
  • Transforming Batmobile Statue: Fully transformable Batmobile statue realized in exquisite detail by TriForce

Batman: Arkham Knight Limited Edition for console or PC ($100)

Still holding out a sliver of hope that Prometheus will make an appearance. Pleasant surprise about Red Hood, though.

Why aren't the limited editions on the PC? They're not available on Amazon :(

Besides skins matching the suit in the included comic book, there are not any additional DLC, Season Pass or console exclusives. Seems strange.

<< LINK REMOVED >> how about you buy opne copy, and then let other people who want them get them, without paying a rediculess premium, your taking advantage of a system that is put in place to help people, you should not be making a profit as you are not a distinct vendor, how would you feel if the guy ahead of you bought to copies and took the last one,.

With a release date of next June I am starting to think the original release date was just a ruse to get people excited for the game and pre order. Why would you announce a game for this fall and then delay it until almost a year later? That is a pretty big gap to simply make the game as best as it can be.

They're deliberately postponing it in order to release it alongside their new gaming client:

@toddx77 Or maybe they decided there weren't enough pre-release buyers? Or maybe they lost a big hunk of the code? Or it could be just as they said?

There's really no need to tell us the truth. (Warner Bros shareholders, on the other hand...)

I really can't believe they pushed it this far, almost a year delay after initial projection. I feel like it has far more to do with just bugs, I think there are changing some aspects of the game. I am hoping one of them is axing the Batman warfare mode when your batmobile turns into a tank. I have seen silly in Batman verse, but this was too much and kinda shocking it came from Rocksteady who really are the few people who 'gets it'. I know there are pilotless robots or vehicles, still, too much of collateral damage for batman to cause.


I felt bad having preordered this game way back in April. Then I realize I got it pre-ordered for only 30$ through GMG promotions, then I am happy again lol.

<< LINK REMOVED >> They aren't going to axe the battle mode after spending so much time making and showing it. They are drones in an empty city so not much collateral at all, especially when you take into account that he'll be driving through walls and pillars etc. Batman causes a lot of Collateral at times depending on how dire the situation.

Batman hits Xbox one, I like that, put it in the next sequel.

Already pre order the limited edition on amazon, I like the batmobile and all but $200 is just a bit to steep a price for a special edition of a car that will just sit there.

The statute is on gameinformer.com and it's 12 inches tall.

After seeing all of the DLC on AA, this game will be one of those "wait for the definitive edition" types of games for me.

It would be great to know the measurements of these extras. As a collector I am particular about these things and at $200 it would have to be pretty large and worthy of displaying.

Looking forward to this, and a release in June? Usually a slow month, so I'm doubly amped to dive into this game during the slow summer months.

Suggestion for UK people.

I bought Watchdogs PC Dedsec edition on Shopto's Cyber Sunday deal. £90 limited edition with a statue, DLC and stuff for £30.


Don't buy the limited editions at launch. Wait a while and see the stores sell off the excess stock for cheap.

Its a gamble. Some limited editions are actually limited. TLoU second tier limited edition for example.

If PC is also getting a physical release and all of the other Limited Edition content I don't see a reason why we can't also get the batmobile. No matter, I'll just shell out some dough on ebay.
