'Batman Arkham Knight' Release Date: Voice Actor Kevin Conroy Says You'll Drive The Batmobile In January 2015 [VIDEO]
Thanks to word from Rocksteady we knew that Batman: Arkham Knight was hit with a delay and isn't supposed to release until some time next year, but the developer couldn't elaborate on a closer window. Now, according to the caped crusader's longtime voice actor, the game will be out first thing in 2015.
Conroy was doing an appearance at the Denver Comic Con over the weekend, and spoke to Groovey.TV a bit about Arkham Knight.
Originally set for an October 2014 release, Knight was pushed back to 2015 so that, according to Rocksteady's Marketing Manager Guy Perkins, the team could make the game the "best possible experience."
"We just want to make the best experience we possibly can and we need more time to do that," said Perkins. "I think what we've shown so far is a super ambitious project and we just want to make sure we are giving Batman fans and gamers the best Batman experience that we can possibly deliver and that just takes time. I think we would be doing fans a disservice if we didn't spend the time on the title. We just want it to be really great."
Since the announcement, Rocksteady remained mum on a specific release date. But during his talk with Groovey.TV, Conroy let slip that the game was expected to release first thing in 2015.
"It was supposed to come out in January, we've been working on it for a year and a half, it's still not done. So it's gonna come out next January," said Conroy. "The reason it's been delayed is because it's so awesome...This new one is going to just rock your world. it's massive, and it's exciting, you literally fly with Batman through Gotham. It's really sweet."

Rocksteady has yet to confirm Conroy's nugget of info, so take it with a grain of salt for the time being. Expect the game to drop for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC next year.
