THE BIG STUFF:
Halo Returns to PC With Halo Online, But Only in Russia for Now: One of the week’s biggest pieces of news was one we did not see coming. A Russia-only Halo game for PC? Crazy! There’s no word yet on if it’s coming to North America, but you can watch a gameplay trailer here.
Batman: Arkham Knight Release Date Delayed Again: It happened again, but thankfully, this delay is a short one. The new Caped Crusader game from Rocksteady has been pushed a couple of weeks from its previously schedule June 2 release to a new launch date of June 23. At least there’s an epic new gameplay trailer to enjoy.
Batman: Arkham Due Remastered for PS4 and Xbox One, Report Claims: A new report this week claimed that Rocksteady’s first two Batman Arkham games, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, will be getting remastered versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
