Rumour: Batman Says Arkham Knight Coming January 2015
Posted by Wayne Davies
The voice of the Dark Knight has spoken!
Kevin Conroy, the iconic voice of Batman, may have let slip that we could see Batman: Arkham Knight released in January 2015. During an interview with Groovey.TV, Conroy briefly discussed Arkham Knight:
"It was supposed to come out in January, we've been working on it for a year and a half and it's still not done. So it's going to come out next January. The reason its been delayed is that it's so... Awesome!"
Kevin Conroy has provided the voice of Batman for 22 years now and the statement given in the interview may be an error, but it's important to note that this wouldn't the first time Conroy has said something he shouldn't have. During the confusion that Conroy would not be voicing Batman in Batman: Arkham Origins - a role that later went to Roger Craig Smith - Conroy accidentally said that he was doing voice work for in another Arkham game. That game later turned out to be Batman: Arkham Knight.
Originally planned for a Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC release in the fall of 2014, Batman: Arkham Knight was delayed by Warner Bros until 2015. No official release date has since been set. It will be the final chapter in Rocksteady's Arkham Trilogy, set after the events of Arkham City. Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect; the Scarecrow returns to unite Batman's enemies in a plot to finally kill the Dark Knight, but lurking in the shadows is a potentially bigger threat - the Arkham Knight.
