Batman: Arkham Origins Announced

April 9, 2013 | By | 3 Comments


Game Informer’s monthly cover reveal is a source of great fanfare, usually revealing a new game or, barring that, a blowout of new screens and information. The May cover features the unveiling of Batman: Arkham Origins.

Arkham Origins will be a prequel to the previous Arkham games, and Warner Bros. Games Montreal will be taking over development duties from Rocksteady. It all lines up with rumors that we’ve previously heard, except for the Silver Age setting that some were hoping for. The game will release on October 25th for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC.

Also releasing that day will be the first handheld entry in the series, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate. It will be a 2.5D Metroid-style adventure game developed by Armature Studio, and will release on both the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to take a cold shower.

    A little hesitant Rocksteady is not developing the game; so I’ll take a wait and see attitude on this one.
    I wonder what Rocksteady is up to though?

      Rocksteady are being quite secretive, whatever it may be. In any case, I’m definitely excited for a Metroidvania take on Batman.
