Retailers that MyGaming spoke to confirmed that this is due to shipping and logistics problems, compounded by the shipping delay of the title in Europe.

Developed by WB Games Montréal, Batman: Arkham Origins features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, where a bounty is put on Batman’s head, giving every villain the inventive to try and take down Batman all in the same night.
Warner Bros Games has released 17-minutes of gameplay to prepare you for the Dark Knight’s prequel adventure.
The actual gameplay looks spruced up from 2011’s Arkham City, and Warner Bros Montreal has really put their own stylistic stamp on the franchise.
You even get to see Alfred in the Batcave, some of the new weapons and gadgets at Batman’s disposal, and even the training arena that players can use to explore the new moves.
