Yes, Batman: Arkham Asylum came out this year. It kicked major major ass. Won a bazillion awards, and they (Eidos/Rocksteady) have announced Batman: Arkham Asylum 2. And YES, they already have a teaser trailer for it, please view below.
Awesome right? It almost looks like they closed off a section of Gotham City and are using that as the new Arkham. Kind of a clever way of moving Batman’s adventures out into the city, rather than being couped up inside the whole time. It looks as if they are already hard at work on the game, which is amazing. With this and Dead Space 2 announced I couldn’t be more excited right now. Head past the break for a bit more. “We are thrilled to build a global game franchise from Batman: Arkham Asylum, which is receiving an incredible response from gamers and fans of Batman around the world,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Rocksteady has taken Batman to a new level in the video game space and we are committed to delivering a sequel the fans will love.”
“Getting the opportunity to create Batman: Arkham Asylum and seeing its success has been a dream come true for the team,” said Sefton Hill, Game Director, Rocksteady Studios. “We are honored to create the next chapter in this compelling story and promise to deliver another game worthy of the DARK KNIGHT.”
