"After reviewing the progress of the project, the team at WB Games has decided to delay the release of Batman: Return to Arkham to give the team at Virtuous Games additional time to deliver a polished Batman Arkham game experience," the company wrote in a post to the "Arkham Knight" forums. "We do not have a release date yet and will be sure to communicate that once we are sure the game will be ready. We know this is disappointing news, but we feel the extra time will allow the team to create the best gaming experience for our fans."

The remaster was to offer updated versions of Rocksteady's acclaimed "Batman: Arkham Asylum" and "Batman: Arkham City" games with "improved graphics, as well as upgraded models, environments, lighting, effects and shaders." No new release date has been given for the "Return to Arkham" set.
