Batman: Arkham Knight is coming out in January 2015, according the game’s lead actor.

Kevin Conroy, who voices Batman in Rocksteady Studios’ upcoming final installment in the Batman: Arkham series, said in an interview with GrooveyTV during the Denver Comic Con, shown above, that the title was originally scheduled to be released in January 2014 but now will be out in January 2015.

“It was suppose to come out in January [2014],” said Conroy. “We’ve been working on it for a year and a half, it’s still not done. So it’s going to come out next January.

“I know everyone is frustrated. The reason it’s been delayed is because it’s so awesome. This new one is going to rock your world. It’s massive and it’s exciting.”

Scheduled for a release in October 2014 when first announced back in March, the game was delayed earlier this month until 2015.

Arkham Knight takes place one year following the events of Rocksteady’s 2011 installment, Arkham City, as Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect when The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains to destroy The Dark Knight forever.

It will feature villains such as Penguin, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, and the all-new villain, The Arkham Knight.

For the first time in the series, the Batmobile will be a core element of the game with an entire new area of Gotham City.

A five-minute gameplay trailer was released during Sony’s E3 conference last week.

Arkham Knight will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
