Warner Bros. Interactive has confirmed that the Dark Knight will be returning in as-of-yet unnamed entry in the Batman Arkham series, which will release sometime later this year. John Martin, chief financial officer and chief administrative officer at Warner confirmed the news in a recent investor call, saying “We also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise.”
What makes this news a little more interesting is a report from VG247 that says Rocksteady, the developer behind Arkham Asylum and its sequel, won’t be returning for the latest installment. What will it be? Batman: Arkham World? Perhaps the inmates of Arkham City are looking for total world domination, so Batman and Robin/Nightwing — because this better be a co-op game — have to team up to stop them? I have no idea. What would you like to see in the Caped Crusader’s next adventure?
