Alright, we’re going to be honest with you: we have some bad news for you. It’s not terrible news, but, well, it’s bad – at least for some people. The PC version of Batman: Arkham City is being delayed from October to November, so any PC gamers looking forward to cleaning up the streets of Gotham are going to need to wait at least a few more weeks.

See? We warned you. But this sad story comes with some good news as well: that delay doesn’t extend to the console versions, which are still on track for October 18 in North America, October 19 in Australia, and October 21 in Europe. Rocksteady Studios and WBIE have released some new screenshots, too, to help ease the pain this delay might cause you.

The images show off a number of different elements from the soon-to-be released game, including some sleuthing, some combat, and some of Batman’s signature brooding over a cityscape. There’s also a higher-resolution image of the screenshot that went around last month of Batman fighting side-by-side with Bane, letting you enjoy every pixel of Bane’s big, bulging muscles.

    This is terrible news. I was holding out on this coming out then, I'm going away in November and I finish exams late October. I was hoping to play this after I finish exams, but now I have to wait until I come back. Lame, lame, lame.

    Egh, I'll play it on Xbox, so this doesn't really affect me. Although the screens are interesting, and do I notice a Batman-Bane team up?

    Normally, I'd be pretty mad about this, but I'm getting this on PS3 anyway. So.. carry on.

    Is that Bane fighting WITH Batman? Interesting...

    Glad you're f***ing happy. I'm certainly not.

    No biggie. Looks great, but I'll wait to pick up the GotY edition for $10 like I did the first game.

    Exactly. If I'm having to wait a month anyway, I might as well wait a little longer and get it cheaper.

    Come on! What are the chances the Arkham City will win GotY right after Arkham Asylum won GotY? P'shaw! Let me reiterate: p'shaw!
