New comic book series suggests another delay for Batman: Arkham Knight

Batman: Arkham Knight - Genesis to tell the origin story of new villain

An announcement regarding a new comic book series detailing the origins of Arkham Knight, the villain in the Batman: Arkham Knight video game, suggests another delay for Rocksteady's highly anticipated game.

DC Comics announced today a new six-issue mini-series called Batman: Arkham Knight – Genesis will explore the villain's origin story and reveal his past. There's just one problem, though.

Batman: Arkham Knight – Genesis is due out on July 29, while the actual game is set to release on June 23rd following yet another delay.

If the dates are accurate with no more delays, than fans would have had the game for over a month before reading about Arkham Knight's past. It's entirely possible the new comic could just retell information that we learned in the game, possibly going into more depth; but, given the game's development history, another delay isn't out of the question.

Either way, we're getting a new Batman comic series by writer Pete Tomasi and artist Alisson Borges. Tomasi, by the way, is also the writer of the Batman: Arkham Knight comic that bridges the gap between Arkham City and Arkham Knight.
