I'm not afraid. I'm angry

The bundled remasters of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, originally set for a July 26 release for PS4 and Xbox One, no longer have a release date, according to an official statement on Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's Arkham Knight forums.

"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," according to the official post. "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 collection was announced just last month for $49.99.

The Game of the Year editions of the games were to be remastered using the Unreal Engine 4 and included access to all additional downloadable content.

Batman: Arkham Asylum, originally developed by Rocksteady Studios in 2009, took place in the iconic insane asylum that played home to some of DC Comic's most notorious villains, including the Joker and Harley Quinn. Batman: Arkham City, the studio's sequel to the game, was released in 2011 and took the villains outside the walls of the asylum, bringing mayhem to the streets of Gotham.
