Batman: Arkham Asylum
Batman: Arkham Asylum Officially Delayed
Written By
View author's profile

So it's official, the rumour we posted yesterday regarding the Batman: Arkham Asylum  release date delay appears to be true.

Both Geoff Keighley on Twitter and Game Informer Online have posted an update from Eidos and Warner Bros stating that Batman: Arkham Asylum will no longer hit its June release date and will be released "at the end of summer 2009" instead.

Eidos and Warner Bros stated that "this additional time will allow us to ensure Batman: Arkham Asylum is of the highest quality for gamers." However, despite that, we suspect that the intention is to maximize profits by releasing in a more profitable release window considering that gamers have been playing demos of the title in GameStop shops all over the States for some time now.
Whilst it's not set for June anymore, the "end of summer 2009" is a bit better than Q4 2009 ... although, there is still a chance that could happen.
In the mean time, don't forget to follow our Twitter.

Took a good amount of hype being built and just deflated it. We'll see how sales will stack up against the proven and established mega hits to release at that time. Hmmmmm

Doesn't bother me any at all, I planned on getting Red Faction and Prototype. Works out better for me although this also looks amazing and I was and will be looking forward to it.

Well they just saved me £59.99, they will be releasing the game now around the same time as the huge hitters like Halo ODST, my money is going to those games and not Batman, its now officially a rental.

All this does for them is do nothing more than create a larger demand. Obviously pre-sales were not where they wanted them. Typically %&$*ing Bull*&$%.

@ #19. I'd honestly rather play Arkham Asylum before Assassins Creed 2 and ODST. Though Id prolly pick up Bioshock 2 and eventually get around to Assassins Creed 2.

And I figured it'd be delayed again. At first it was delayed, then they bumped up the release date, only to delay it again. Aah well. Hopefully the game will be worth it.

Screw this! I was looking forwards to this. But I'm not getting for a while after it comes out. Not when Bioshock 2, Halo 3 ODST, Modern Warfare 2, Assassins Creed 2 and Dead Rising 2 are coming out. Yeah, they'll totally make more money.

Well the response to Arkham Asylum has been massive. It should hold it's own against a couple of the big release titles, however I don't see it competing with ODST or Bioshock or even MW2 if that is in the same time frame. I must say, i'm not a Huge fan of DC and/or Marvel, but even this drew a great response from me. I'll still be picking it up, but it just means it'll probably be a lil bit later down the track. Cause sorry Eidos but ODST, Bioshock 2 and Assassins Creed 2 will be coming before Arkham Asylum will. No big loss really, i just hope they really clean up the game or give a good reason for its being held back.
And no, Profits isnt a good reason.

as long as it is actually good when it comes out, that's good enough for me. i hate when they push back release dates and the game is still glitchy

ODST isn't supposed to hit until September 30th and Modern Warfare 2 is slated for November 10th. I plan on picking this one up regardless but whether or not its before the holidays depends on what they mean by "end of summer." Early to mid August I'll pick it up, after that its waitlisted because I'll be very busy with those 2.

Typical reaction from this site. Everyone complaining about the delay. If they'd brought it out early with glitches and errors it'd get jumped on as being rubbish. I get the feeling that most of the posters on here just want to moan.

All the people that were looking forward to this game aren't gonna buy it now bc it got delayed? Yea right.. I'm glad it was pushed back bc I rarely can buy games when they are brand new, so it gives me more time to save some money.. As amazing as this game looks already, this will just give them even more polish time to make it better.. Oh yea, and stop calling it Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.. The CoD part was cut from the game.. That's as aggravating as people calling WaW CoD5.. There's no such game

I agree that some people just like to post to complain to hear thier voices, I dun mind glitches and bugs personally, and most likely they won't be fixing anything they will let it sit so they could get a larger demand, there will still be the same amount for bugs later, still going to enjoy it XD , even though now my pre payment is going to Bioshock 2 XD(as long as the bugs dun screw with beating th egame)

@30 you do realise dec31st release date basically means nothing right? thats a place holder date coz they have no cliue when its due but hope its this year, fact is if you check the net you'll find colonial marines is probably never gonna happen.

as for the delay on arkham asylum im not that fussed coz it means i have something to play whilst all the halo monkeys are jizzig there pants over how substandard ODST is gonna be :)

Halo isn't that popular of a series, people liked Halo 1, 2, and 3. But only the hardcore nerds (you know, like the ones who have the entire book series) are going to buy ODST.

There going to take out all of the things that made Halo 3 an innovative game, such as shields, and run+gun stylings.

I wish they could just release the second Mythic Map Pack on the MP, I don't want to pay for that blunder on the gaming community.

(Triple Post...?)

This potentially is a great business tactic. See, not everybody dedicates all of their waking hours to looking up video game news, so now that all of the Halo fanboys, and Bioshock fanboys, and Assassin's Creed fanboys (wishful thinking?) are going to be in the store at that time, they'll see. "Oh, I can still put a pre-order on Arkham, why not?"

Learn business before you comment on shoddy business.

Although, games do have more demand at the begining of the summer, developers can use that to there advantage, and make people buy it after summer so they can hype it even further, and release it at a time where people are buying games ANYWAY, so they'll be more inclined to buy THEIR game.

Here's an idea, while you guys are waiting through those damn summer months,

If they put this much money into a game and they don't fix the glitches, their subsidiaries. If this is Eidos as i'm presuming from the delay (lol, SQEX merger :D) they are currently a stand-alone company, though, before this release date, they will be a subsidiary of SQEX. And if they fuck up this game, their general sales will go down, and thus will be meaningless to SQEX and they will be left in the dirt...

Like Ensemble...

And Jesus... (He got the Swine)

And Raptor Jesus... (jk, he's still alive)

If it's all about maximising profits, then pushing it back isn't going to help. look at what happened to Dead Space... One of my favourite games from last year, but it got criminally overlooked. Putting your game up against proven sellers is not the best course of action, Batman or not.

Its a shame, I was really excited about this summer as it looked like pubishers had finally woken up and realised that gamers are gamers, whatever the season, and want a constant drip feed of quality titles throughout the year.

This setback has proven that may not strictly be true. Ah well, it's a definite buy, quality will be the same whenever its released.

@ 80

Atually I've been a Batman fan as long as I can remember, and this game looks awesome, a great representation of the Dark Knight.

To label anyone interested as a 'bandwagon fan' of a movie which was, as this is, an awesome representation of Batman is a little short sighted don't you think?

Well, considering most of the people that saw Dark Knight never bothered with Batman before, my comment is very valid. Funny thing is, I just threw that in there for the hell of it. The fact that you took it seriously is a bit odd. The fact that I even replied to you is even more odd.

couldn't agree more !!!

i also find it a real bad move to delay it till 4Q......
cause seeing that Halo's new one will be right around the corner and then on top of that you have prob the most anticapated game of the year (MWF2) out in that time frame.

That's okay. If they have to work out the kinks, then let it rock. Hopefully it'll be much better by the time it drops.

This game looks awesome, although delays aren't usually a good sign.

I don't care how much they delay it, if they use the extra time to improve instead of shoving it out the door (i.e. Gears 2) then I'll be happy.

Yes, i feel so happy because were geting the game on june the 19th in the U.K.! i think it is because the game is being developed in the U.K. and also if you pre-order you get a bonus map or a new bat suit sooo it should be good (Y) :D
