'Batman: Arkham Knight': Next-gen Batman game coming this year

Posted on

ARkham Knight

Back in 2011, Rocksteady Studios delivered Batman: Arkham City, a game that we liked quite a bit. Then Rocksteady disappeared behind the Veil of Videogame Secrecy, leaving Warner Bros. Montreal to deliver Arkham Origins, a decidedly meh placeholder prequel. But there were tantalizing rumors that Rocksteady was working on a next-generation Arkham game. And now, Game Informer has confirmed it. Arkham Knight will hit sometime in 2014 — probably October, since that’s when the last couple games arrived.

It’s Rocksteady’s last game and is being pitched as the final chapter of the Arkham trilogy. To answer all your questions: The main villain appears to be the Scarecrow; you can play as Harley Quinn; it’ll be on PS3, Xbox One, and PC; and you can drive the Batmobile. Sorry, lemme rephrase that: YOU CAN DRIVE THE BATMOBILE ROH MY GOD. Watch the announcement trailer below:
