Rocksteady’s marketing manager, Gaz Deaves, has confirmed that the Batman: Arkham Collection is indeed coming to retailers, albeit only in Europe. The collection will be released in September.
Batman: Arkham Collection released last year, digitally on the PlayStation Store; however, it looks like the Collection will be heading to retail stores later this year.
Amazon UK had a listing for Batman: Arkham Collection accidentally posted earlier this week. The collection includes Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and Batman: Arkham Knight, all three games developed by Rocksteady Studios. Notably, the one game developed by WB Montreal, Batman: Arkham Origins is still missing from the collection.
The collection is listed with a release date of September 6, 2019, which is a Friday. A Friday tends to be when most AAA developers release their games these days. After all, the Batman: Arkham Collection released digitally on a Friday, last November.
The official description of the collection from the Amazon listing Gematsu pulled can be found below:
