Original Story: The wait for Batman: Arkham Knight was originally going to end in just about a month from now, before the game was delayed to 2015. Today, at a Gamestop conference, the new release date was announced as June 2, 2015.

Rocksteady Studio’s final Batman game, their third, is exclusive to the newest consoles, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (plus a PC release), and includes a much-expanded full-size Gotham City, a playable Batmobile, and a protagonist described as an Anti-Batman.

The new release date puts about three and a half years between the release of Rocksteady’s last game, Batman: Arkham City, and their final chapter (Batman: Arkham Origins, a prequel, was released in 2013 by WB Montreal). The new date also puts the game out just two weeks before next year’s E3 expo.
