The Wii U version of Batman: Arkham Origins and Nintendo 3DS version of Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate have both been delayed, Warner Bros. has confirmed to VideoGamer.com.

Both games will now arrive in Europe on November 8, two weeks after the release of the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita SKUs next Friday, October 25.

In addition, the boxed PC release of Batman: Arkham Origins has also seen a setback, again pushed back to November 8. A digital PC version will still be available to purchase next Friday, however.

Reasons for the delay have not been revealed by Warner Bros., although it's reported to have only affected Europe. All versions of the game are still expected to be available in North America on October 25.

I'm guessing that delaying the retail version of new games is another way to combat second hand sales.

Get the digital version you can't re-sell earlier, or wait 'til the boxed version that you can trade-in, is, I think, going to become de rigueur for this coming generation.

I have been trying days to find this out from GAME and ShopTo, since they both already had the release date of November. Obvious conspiracy theory.

Isn't that all a bit strange? I'll be able to play the game on my PC on Friday because I'll be downloading it, but had I ordered a physical disc it would take weeks longer? And my physical Vita copy will be delivered, but the 3DS one wouldn't have? Had I ordered it, which I haven't, and this is less strange as they'll be slightly different, but, still.
