"Batman: Arkham Origins" to be announced at E3 (Rumor)

While I have no doubt that Rocksteady is hard at work on another game, if rumors are to be believed, we’ll be seeing Batman in a rather nostalgic light.

 

According to French gaming site Gameblog.fr,  their sources have told them that Rocksteady is working on a Batman: Arkham game that will be revealed at this year’s E3. It will allegedly be called “Batman: Arkham Origins,” and the story will apparently take place around the ’50s or ’60s, and will even feature other members of the Justice League.

Not only that, but the rumors also state that it’s scheduled for a PS4 and Xbox 720 release, but there is a chance that it will come to current-gen platforms, too.

 

Keep in mind that this is still very much a rumor. But if true, then this would add more ground to murmurs that Rocksteady’s next game will involve the Justice League in some capacity.

We’ve reached out to Warner Bros. Interactive for a comment and we’ll give an update once we hear back from them.

So, would a Batman game set during the ’50s or ’60s be your cup of tea? Let’s hope it’s more Batman: The Animated Series than Adam West, no?

I hope this is true. Rocksteady had stated before how they would love to do a Batman game set in the "old days" of Batman.

Even though they had said they were currently not working on a new Batman game, maybe it's all been a lie in order to surprise everyone at E3. (OR, it's true, but it's another developer doing this game.)

Rocksteady Studios has had a solid history thus far with Batman games – they have released the critically acclaimed Batman Arkham Asylum and the award winning sequel Batman Arkham City. Now, rumors are pointing to Rocksteady continuing the franchise this fall.

The rumor comes from French gaming site Gameblog, who claim that Rocksteady is working on the next Batman game, reportedly called Batman Arkham Origins. The game will be a prequel to the existing series and is rumored to include other members of the Justice League, specifically Superman and the Green Lantern, with the characters inspired by the Silver Age of comics (mid-1950s to 1970). The report states the game will be officially unveiled at E3 this year, will be released in the third quarter of 2013, and will also be scheduled for the PS4 and the next Xbox.

If this new Batman game is instead coming from a different development studio other than Rocksteady, that might be a shame if the game doesn't turn out as worthy of wearing the cape. At this point though I think we'll have to see more of the game to know anything about it, along with everything from the story details to the style of gameplay in which Batman or other Justice League members will approach the enemy... or one another?

Well, you got to think they just wouldn't give the series to anyone. If it's in the hands of a new team, then Warner Bros. probably believes they know what they're doing.
