Batman Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition Cancelled Globally

Batman Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition Cancelled Globally

The highly sought Batman Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition has today been canceled. Local supplier EB Games emailed everyone who had pre-ordered the game this morning to advise of the cancellation due to quality issues just 6 days before its release.

….unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances that greatly compromised the quality of the Batmobile edition, this edition has now been cancelled globally by Warner and as a result we are unable to fulfil your order for this product.

An offer has been made to those effected to of an exclusive edition for a discounted price of only $87AUD containing:

  • A copy of the game
  • A Steelbook case
  • Exclusive Batman skin: Batman First Appearance,
  • Batmobile and Red Hood DLC,
  • The Harley Quinn Challenge Maps
  • The Scarecrow pack (on PS4 only)

Which is a far cry from Batmobile Edition with no physical content at all and even the Batman: Arkham Knight Limited Edition seems t have suddenly disappeared from the EB Games site.

Either way with such a narrow window until the games release date and such a paltry offering to appease those that have been impacted, I’m sure there will be many unhappy Bat-fans out there today.

  • So those who preorder don’t even get bumped to the statue version?

      To be fair I’d assume, being so close to launch, that this is a manufacturing fault discovered AFTER distribution. They’ve probably already neared capacity for the number of statue versions they were sent so offering that instead is likely just not viable.

      • Sure, I get that, but if they were mass producing these things, wouldn’t they have done a prototype and worked off that? Seems a bit odd that only a week before it’s supposed to be released they realise that the production quality is shit.
        As for the other statue, even if they have reached capacity for the other statue then they can still say, ‘hey guys, we don’t have this batmobile available, so instead we’re going to do a run of these batman statues for you which will be availabe in six months down the line. By the way, here’s a free download code for Batman Arkham City/Origins/Whatever to tide you over.’
