Batman: Arkham Origins confirmed; arrives in October on PC, major consoles
Warner Bros. Games Montreal has officially confirmed that it is developing the next title in the Batman franchise; named Batman: Arkham Origins, the action game is currently set for release on 25 October on the PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U. Given the title, it appears that Arkham Origins will take place several years prior to the events of the Arkham Asylum and Arkham City games.
Furthermore, GameInformer have teased their cover for May, releasing the first image of the game, which depicts a kickass Batman as well as the deadly assassin Deathstroke. They have also revealed that a handheld Arkham game – set for launch on the same day – is in the works for the 3DS and Vita as a “2.5-D Metroid-style exploration action game” by Armature Studio; however, the plot in Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate takes place after the events of Arkham Origins. Stay tuned for more deets as and when they appear!
