In a tragic last minute move, Warner Bros. Entertainment have cancelled the production of their Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition.

Originally set to release on launch day with a wealth of content including an art book, character skins and a replica statues of the Arkham Knight Batmobile, this extra special collector’s edition was sold out across every retailer.

In a statement provided to Kotaku by Warner Bros. Entertainment sighted quality concerns as the reason behind its cancellation.

“Dear Batman: Arkham Fans,

We regret to inform you that we are not able to release the Batmobile Collector’s Edition of Batman: Arkham Knight due to unforeseen circumstances that greatly compromised the quality of this extremely limited run of product. We are deeply apologetic for this unfortunate outcome. If you did pre-order the Batmobile Collector’s Edition, please go to the retail location where you pre-ordered the product and you will receive a full refund of your deposit or it can be rolled over to another Batman: Arkham Knight edition or another product of your choice. We will be providing everyone who purchases Batman: Arkham Knight with the New 52 skin pack, including Batman, Robin and Nightwing, free of charge.”

As someone who personally pre-ordered one of these, I’m really disappointed.

It’s a wonder why the decision was made so close to launch, but regardless, at least the game hasn’t been cancelled.
