The long time voice of Batman, Kevin Conroy, may have let the planned release month for Batman: Arkham Knight slip. In an interview with Groovy.tv, Conroy revealed that Arkham Knight was originally planned for a January 2014 release date, but was pushed back. “It was suppose to come out in January ,” he said. “We’ve been working on it for a year and a half, it’s still not done. So it’s going to come out next January, but I know everyone is frustrated. The reason it’s been delayed is because it’s so awesome.” This would not be the first major title to launch in January. Arkham Knight would join the likes of DMC and Mass Effect 2 for the major releases in January, a month traditionally plagued by the post-Christmas drought.
This would not be the first time Conroy has let information slip about a new Batman title either. In May of 2013, Conroy revealed that he would be reprising the role of Batman in an all new Batman game. One caveat with that, Batman: Arkham Origins, 2013’s Batman title, featured Roger Craig Smith as the voice of the Caped Crusader. Naturally this all but confirmed that Rocksteady was working on an all new entry into the Arkham series. Will another Conroy leak be prophetic? We’ll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
