What was once a rumour is now a fact. You won’t be seeing Batman zipping around Gotham in the Batmobile this year, as the dark knight will instead arrive in 2015.
So why is the caped crusader missing out on a 2014 round of fighting crime? To put it simply, Rocksteady need the extra time to give the game the attention and polish that it deserves.
“We just want to make this the best experience that we can, and that takes time,” Rocksteady Studios marketing manager Guy Perkins said to GameSpot.
We feel that we have an absolutely awesome game in the works, and we want to make it as great as it possibly can be. We just need more time to do that. If we didn’t give the team more time to do it, then we would be releasing something that we weren’t happy with. We want to make sure we’re absolutely nailing it 100 percent.
Still, the wait should be worth it. Gotham is getting a makeover, the enemies have been ramped up and the game looks like it’s firing on all cylinders on new-gen and PC platforms. And don’t forget the Batmobile, which will play a crucial role in the game when it launches next year.
