Batman: Arkham Knight has been delayed into 2015 in order to make it the "best possible experience," according to RockSteady.
Speaking at a press event with The Escapist, Guy Perkins said with such as "super ambitious project" in development, more time is needed.
"We just want to make the best experience we possibly can and we need more time to do that," said Perkins. "I think what we've shown so far is a super ambitious project and we just want to make sure we are giving Batman fans and gamers the best Batman experience that we can possibly deliver and that just takes time.
"I think we would be doing fans a disservice if we didn't spend the time on the title. We just want it to be really great."
Batman: Arkham Knight was originally slated for release later this year on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
