Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition cancelled a week from launch

Batman: Arkham Knight fans hanging out for the swankiest collector's edition swag around are fresh out of luck.

Less than a week ahead of launch, the Batmobile Edition of Batman: Arkham Knight has been cancelled.

The very special edition was exclusive to specific retailers in limited territories, which have begun contacting customers to advice of the cancellation of their orders.

Warner Bros. issued a statement to Kotaku suggesting something went terribly wrong at the last minute:

"We regret to inform you that we are not able to release the Batmobile Collector’s Edition of Batman: Arkham Knight due to unforeseen circumstances that greatly compromised the quality of this extremely limited run of product. We are deeply apologetic for this unfortunate outcome."

Since the only difference between the Arkham Knight Limited Edition and the Batmobile Edition was the "transforming Batmobile" we assume this was the culprit.

Retailers have offered to refund or transfer deposits, although since the Limited Edition is sold out in many territories this is not an ideal situation for those who wanted a special package. In compensation, Warner Bros. is offering some bonus digital goodies to everyone:

"We will be providing everyone who purchases Batman: Arkham Knight with the New 52 skin pack, including Batman, Robin and Nightwing, free of charge," the publisher said.

Batman: Arkham Knight hits PC, PS4 and Xbox One on June 23.
