We’ve sad news for fans that pre-ordered the Batmobile Edition of the anticipated upcoming action game Batman: Arkham Knight.
This edition of the game, which sold out shortly after going on sale in September of last year, has been cancelled. After the cancellation was rumored by the friend of a GameStop emplyee on NeoGAF, it was confirmed by Warner Bros. when they issued the statement:
Dear Batman: Arkham Fans,
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. If you did pre-order the Batmobile Collector’s Edition, please go to the retail location where you pre-ordered the product and you will receive a full refund of your deposit or it can be rolled over to another Batman: Arkham Knight edition or another product of your choice. 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 news is especially saddening given the very late notice; Batman: Arkham Knight launches on June 23rd. The special edition of the game doesn’t appear to have been affected.
