"Batman: Arkham City" is a serious contender for Game of the Year. You probably don't need me to tell you that, though, since every outlet that covers games has spent the better part of a month gushing all over it. Chances are, many of you have already played through the entire adventure – well, unless you happen to be a PC gamer. In that case, you've been waiting, patiently holding onto hope that despite a previous delay, you can float through the skyline as the Dark Knight sooner rather than later.
Well, there's good news and bad news. The game's PC launch has been delayed again. The good news? You just might, with any luck, get to play the potential Game of the Year before, you know, the year is over.
"Arkham City" released to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles on October 18. At the time, it wasn't immediately clear when PC players could expect the Bat to arrive, with the game's publisher only stating that it would release sometime in November. Shortly thereafter, Warner Bros. and Rocksteady Studios announced that the version would find its way to your hard drive on November 18. A crappy delay, but the gap between console and PC release isn't entirely alien.
Today, well, the game was delayed yet again. According to a press release this morning, PC fans can expect "Arkham City" on November 22 in North America. This version will also release on November 23 in Australia and France; the rest of Europe will have to wait until November 25. No explanation for the delay was provided.
The wait's almost over, but in the meantime, feel free to shine that spotlight in the night sky. He'll be there before you know it.
