It’s really just days until the hugely anticipated Batman: Arkham Knight is released – and many eager Batfans are waiting patiently for the sought after, but terribly expensive Batmobile Collector’s Edition. They’ll be waiting forever. It’s been cancelled.
According to UK retailer GAME, Warner and Rocksteady have cancelled the CE over quality concerns.
“Regrettably, due to unforeseen circumstances that greatly compromised the quality of the Batmobile, included within the Batman Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition, Warner Bros has decided not to release this product,” GAME stated in its email to customers.
This might come as a hard kick to the face to fans who shelled out for the ludicrously expensive, ludicrously aesome special edition, which included a replica batmobile, along with:
- 80 page custom art book – 80 Page, Full Colour Art Book Showcasing the concept art of Batman Arkham Knight.
- Unique SteelBook case and game disc.
- Limited Edition DC Comics Batman: Arkham Knight #0 Comic Book.
- Exclusive Character Skin Pack, which includes three unique skins from DC Comics’ The New 52.
Customers are being refunded, and given the option to purchase alternate, not quite as awesome collector’s editions instead.
Batman: Arkham Knight will be out on 23rd June for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The Batmobile edition won’t. Next time they should Warner brother.
It’s really just further incentive to me to not pre-order anything, and tells me that these special editions are usually made on the cheap, but I’m a grumpy, cynical sod, so what do I know?
