Despite the North American release of the Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition going off without a hitch almost six months ago on May 29th, the UK launch date of the GOTY Edition of the sublime Arkham City has missed its scheduled September 7th release and has been delayed until November.
Bundled with all of the game's DLC including the Harley Quinn's Revenge story add-on, the Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition released in North America with the Batman: Year One animated movie as an added bonus. An extra treat that the UK and EU release won't have. And now it's delayed too, for no apparent reason.
"Apologies for the confusion and the delay, we understand it is disappointing," Rocksteady's European Community Manager Sarah Wellock wrote on the game's forums. "Each of the territories determined the best time to release Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition and for the UK, November is best."
Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition will now release in November 2nd, amid the busy pre-Christmas period. Strange... "A lot of the time we have to consider our relationships with retailers and what works well for them," Wellock added. "It's not just about release schedules."
