Batman: Arkham Knight Will Go Up Against Geralt Of Rivia
It was sad news when Rocksteady announced that Batman: Arkham Knight would be delayed until 2015, with the acclaimed developers claiming that “awesome takes time”. Well, it doesn’t seem to take too much longer, because a recent leak on the Microsoft Store page suggests that Arkham Knight will drop not long after its previous October release date.
The page, which has now been taken offline, slapped Arkham Knight with a release date of the 24th of February 2015.

Now if that date rings a bell, and it should, that’s because it’s the exact same day as the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. That pretty much rules out marketing as a reason for the Arkham Knight delay, as launching on the same day as one of the most anticipated RPG titles of recent years is a bold move.
That said, it’s all just a rumour until Rocksteady officially announces the news, but it seems likely considering a previous rumour slotted the game in with a January release date.
