Posted on November 8, 2011, Phil Hornshaw Steam Says Batman: Arkham City Hits PC on Nov. 22 [UPDATED}
[UPDATE] Warner Bros. just sent out a press release confirming the new Nov. 22 PC release date. We’re still waiting for an answer as to what the delay entails and why PC players are being made to wait more than a month from the console release, however. Australia gets the game on Nov. 23, France and Benelux on Nov. 24, and the rest of Europe on Nov. 25.
Now, it seems we may be waiting a little longer. According to the unofficial reckoning of Steam, the game will unlock on Nov. 22. Please note that that’s an additional two weeks from today and better than a month from the console release on Oct. 18.
Also worth noting — this is a weeklong delay from the last date we got for Arkham City, which was Nov. 15. And we’re not sure why the game was delayed in the first place.
We’ve reached out to Rocksteady to find out if Steam’s date is the accurate one, and also to ask “what gives?” in the delay department in the first place. We’ll update this story as we learn more.
