Warner Bros. Confirms New Batman Arkham Game For 2013
The first two games generated a loyal following and now, those fans definitely want another installment. And soon.
Thankfully, as part of Time Warner's latest earnings report, we've learned that we can expect the third entry in the Batman Arkham series to launch later this year.
CFO John Martin said said it would be part of the company's strong lineup for 2013-
"And we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise. So all in all, we expect Warners to post another very strong year in 2013. And with a little luck, the year should be as good or maybe even a little bit better than 2012."
The only downside is that according to VG24/7, the new Batman is not in development at Rocksteady Studios. The latter team is apparently working on a "stylized prequel" that will highlight the hero's first encounter with the Joker, and it's not expected to release until 2014 at the earliest. So who's working on the new Batman Arkham...?
Guess we'll find out soon enough.
