We have some fantastic news for fans of the Batman Arkham series, as it looks like the next entry in the popular franchise is heading straight to next gen consoles such as the Sony PS4 and Microsoft’s next-gen effort. Batman Arkham Origins is thought to be the title of the next game and E3 2013 is now looking likely as the destination for the exciting premiere reveal.
While we agree that it would be nice to keep some things secret until E3 2013 in June, we can’t help but get excited upon hearing that the next Batman Arkham game looks to have been leaked already. A French website by the name of GameBlog has spilled the details, as they have said that the game will take place in the 50s and 60s and feature members of the Justice League.
Their unnamed source has also told them that the game will be officially unveiled at E3 2013 and that it will be announced as a next-gen title. We previously heard strange rumors on how Rocksteady wouldn’t be developing the next game, but we’re pleased to hear that this new information does indeed include Rocksteady as developers.
A storyline between the 50s and 60s would obviously be very interesting, but we have a feeling that a lot of you will be much more excited about potential Justice League members turning up – another rumor that has been mentioned in the past. Presuming this is all true though, who would you like to see appear in the game?
Imagine if the likes of Flash and Superman become playable characters, which can be unlocked by completing certain objectives in the game? Rocksteady clearly know what they are doing though with two very successful titles under their belts with Arkham Asylum and then followed up with Arkham City.
We also hear from our readers that a lot of you would prefer a sequel to Arkham City ahead of anything else, so would you be happy if Rocksteady decided to venture off course on another storyline instead? Remember that this is still all rumors for now, but it is looking promising.
Tell us how highly you rate the Arkham series and what your initial thoughts are on an ‘Origins’ title on next-gen consoles.
