Batman: Arkham Knight's release date has been delayed again.

No Caption Provided

The action game, originally expected to launch in 2014, is now due to arrive across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on June 23. The game's latest delay is a short one, however, as the title was previously expected to arrive June 2.

"We're a developer that hates to make any compromises, so we are sorry to say this means it's going to be just a little big longer until you can play the epic conclusion to the Arkham trilogy," game director Sefton Hill said.

Rocksteady has also released a new gameplay trailer for Arkham Knight. Everything you see in the extended video, called "Officer Down," was captured on PS4. On display are some trademark Arkham melee sequences, an impressive-looking Batmobile driving section, and an interrogation scene that may explain the game's well-publicized M rating.

The trailer also reveals that Breaking Bad actor Jonathan Banks, or someone who sounds just like him, will play a role in the game.

Arkham Knight may not be the only new Batman game coming to consoles this year. A new report claims that Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City will be re-released for Xbox One and PS4.
