European delays for Wii U and 3DS Batman Arkham Origins

Warner Bros. has delayed the Wii U and physical PC versions of Batman Arkham Origins, as well as the 3DS version of Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate, by two weeks in Europe.

In a statement issued to Eurogamer, the publisher confirmed that the Xbox 360, PS3 and digital PC editions of Arkham Origins will launch as scheduled on October 25, as will the Vita version of Blackgate. The delayed versions of the games will now hit European stores on November 8. All versions will launch in North America on October 25 as planned.

Arkham Origins for consoles is a prequel developed by Warner Bros. Games Montreal rather than series creator Rocksteady Studios. Blackgate is being handled by Armature Studio, the team of ex-Metroid Prime developers also behind the Vita port of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and the upcoming handheld version of Injustice Gods Among Us.

    Sick of this crap. I went to my EB Games to pick up my preorder of Injustice for Wii U only to be told the Wii U version was also delayed by a week. I had not been informed of this by anyone, it wasn't on their website or anything. I don't think the issue is with Nintendo, it's with Warner Bros - as of a few weeks ago when I traded in Injustice, Australia still didn't have any Injustice DLC on the eShop. I was really looking forward to this Thursday, dammit.
