Update: Below are the potential covers for the novels. The Riddler’s Gambit will be written by Alex Irvine, Locus Award-winning author of the novel “A Scattering of Jades”, among others.

Original Story as follows:

It appears as though Rocksteady’s final entry in the Arkham trilogy will receive not one, but two tie novels. Amazon has listed Batman: Arkham Knight – The Riddler’s Gambit for a June 2, 2015 release, alongside the highly anticipated video game. The official novelization will release a little over a month later, on July 7, 2015.

Both novels will be published by Titan Books, with the official novelization being written by Marv Wolfman. Wolfman is an American comic book writer who is best known for his lengthy runs on Marvel Comics The Tomb of Dracula and is the co-creator of the popular vampire-slayer Blade, along with artist Gene Colan. He is also known for DC Comics’ The New Teen Titans and for working on the Crisis on Infinite Earths event with George Pérez.

No plot details are available at this time, though it is probably safe to assume the ‘Riddler’s Gambit’ will focus on the caped crusader attempting to stop the Riddler’s evil schemes and act as a prequel of sorts. The second novel will most likely follow the main plot of the game. We will reach out to the publisher for comment and will update you if we learn anything new. So stay tuned.

You can pre-order the novels for less than $8 each.
