    The next Batman game is called Batman: Arkham Origins, and it'll be out October 25 for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC. It's a prequel to Arkham Asylum andArkham City.
    The game's plot involves eight of the world's deadliest assassins coming to Gotham City on Christmas Eve. Their target: Batman, of course. The game takes place on the streets of Gotham, according to the developers, who hyped the game in a video on Game Informer's website.Warner Bros. Montreal is making the game, taking the mantle from Rocksteady Studios, the developer behind the critically-acclaimed first two. You can see one of the villains, Deathstroke, make an appearance on the back of the Game Informer cover pictured above

    These things are promising.

    Red Flag: Not Rocksteady.

    I'm pretty sure I'll get both games, but man, Rocksteady has set such an awesome groundwork, I'm scared that another developmental studio is taking this over.

    Supposedly they're saying this game will use a lot of the same game elements, plus it's headed by the guy who made Ultimate Hulk (which was a GREAT game) so how bad can they screw this up? :)
    I hope they're using the same writers (Paul Dini especially) and the same game code. (They did mention they're using the same build of the Unreal Engine; a good sign).

    Dini is not involved in this project.

    I could only assume so... Otherwise they'd be working on this, no?

    Can anything in Batman really carry prequel stink? Batman is not exactly timeline-centric.

    Prequels are like replacing a classic movies old lead with a woman or a black guy. Its lazy, predictable, and halts the flow of the current story.

    If they want to put the joker in another game just find a way to bring him back from the dead. They do it in the comics all the time.

    Personally, I feel this game is a stop-gap to keep up happy until Rocksteady releases the new Batman game for the next-gen consoles.At least I hope that's the case.

    As long as it isn't too offensive, I'll probably like it. How hard is it to screw up the formula that Rocksteady has put into place?

    I doubt thats the case, they've shifted this to their WB studios and took all the shit Rocksteady have been using up till now. Not having the same writers, Dini ect. seems a bit odd, game looks good in these images though

    This last one reminded me of Frank Millers Batman Year One, only thing different is Bats in the background there
