‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ Announced by Warner Bros.

By Samuel Woodruff in News

The next game in the popular Batman: Arkham series has been announced by Warner Bros. “Batman: Arkham Origins” will be released on Oct. 25 this year on PS3, 360, PC, and Wii U. Following the tradition of ‘prequel/sequels,’ the new story will apparently take place long before the stories of the previous Arkham titles, following a green Batman as he encounters many of his foes for the first time.

It’s important to note that the series’ original developer, Rocksteady Studios, will not be developing the game.  Instead, the game will be produced by an in-house team at Warner Bros. Montreal. It’s unclear what impact this will have on the game overall, but the team is utilizing many of the assets used by Rocksteady, including its customized Unreal engine to try to avoid any disparities in the franchise’s aesthetic.

There’s no word on whether the game will appear on next gen consoles.

In further Batman news, Warner Bros. has also announced the upcoming handheld title “Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate.” To also be released on Oct. 25, on the PS Vita and the Nintendo 3DS, the game is being developed by Armature Studios, and is described as a “2.5-D Metroid-style exploration action game.”
