Batman: Arkham City
Rocksteady Reportedly Working on Silver Age Batman: Arkham City Prequel
Written By
View author's profile

In what could be a bit of a shock move, Rocksteady Studios is apparently considering a prequel story for the follow-up to Batman: Arkham City, taking a break from that game's cliffhanger ending to visit the caped crusader's 1950s Silver Age comic book era, when Bats' cowl was bluer than usual.

According to Variety, the Batman: Arkham City prequel could take players all the way back to the Dark Knight's very first encounter with the Joker, with its visual style inspired by the 1950s comic books. Want an idea of what that might look like? You can already play as 1970s Batman with his blue cowl and cape as an extra DLC skin in Arkham City.

Will Rocksteady retain the dark and brooding nature of modern day Batman if these rumours prove to be true, or will we be seeing the 'Pow!' 'Zokk!' and 'Newt!' daftness of the '60s Batman TV series starring Adam West? We'll wait and see whether Warner Bros. confirms any of this before we start speculating too much.

Do your thing Rocksteady. There's no reason not to trust them after Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.

No! Continue the story after Arkham City. Unless this is a PART of the game that is all about Batman's psychological reaction to the ending of AC. I trust Rocksteady, but man I want to see this world's future, not its past.

If they do indeed to a JLA game, then it would have to take place after 1960, because that's when JLA formed. I read on IGN that the game will deal with the first team-ups with Superman, Flash and the like, so it would most likely be pre-JLA.

I also read that this is of sorts the start of tie-ins for the JLA movie, as Lego Batman 2 was.

The would probably be awesome but I want to see them try something where Batman goes against someone who isn't the Joker.

I know he faced alot of different enemies in AC, but they were really just cameos.

Sorry, but I find this really disappointing, if they want Green Lantern in a game, do a Green Lantern game, personally I want a Batman game and not from the 60's with Robin in hot pants and Bat-Hound showing up, or Bat-Mite (yes, they did exist!).

That's not the Silver Age. It's the Bronze Age. Silver Age was the era of Zur-En-Arrh, Rainbow Suit Batman, and plenty more bizarre sci-fi adventures.

I'm hoping that - unless they go a more Morrison-influenced route - the reporter simply got it wrong and is in fact referring to the Bronze Age (or the O'Neil/Adams era). Otherwise I can't really see it working at all.

The problem with this is, and this is just my opinion so don't get upset, but Green Lantern, The Flash and especially Superman just aren't very interesting characters to me. If Warner had any faith that people wanted games based on them they would do separate ones for each. I've no doubt Rocksteady will probably make a good job of it, I'd just rather see another dedicated Batman game, preferrably without Robin and Day-Glo colours.

So long as they take it back to what made AA so great instead of the utter letdown of AC, it'll be incredible. If it goes with limited open-world and super short story again ala AC, then it won't even be worth picking up.

Fingers crossed they can get back the magic of AA. Please make it so, Rocksteady.

Have at it, Rocksteady. You don't have to prove yourself anymore. Both Batman games have gotten numerous awards and both Game Of The Years. You all know how to do Batman. Just have Adam West do the voice of Batman. LOL

@26 AC a let down?! Wow...just wow! Not worth picking up?! Hahaha Now THAT I can definitely say you're smoking some good stuff. If you don't like it, then that's fine, but it's still a great game and DEFINITELY worth picking up.

Why won't they let them work on something that doesn't have "bat" and "man" in the title? Don't get me wrong, the studio's very talented and the games are good but I'd rather they worked on something completely original and new. By making another Batman game it just feels like WB's playing it safe.

I wish they would do more involement with different villains. Like a better Killer Croc fight or bring in Man-Bat. But I loved AA and AC, cliffhanger was a bit much but hey they are professionals and know what they are doing, so bring it on Rocksteady.

I like original Batman costume but I like modern darkness Batman costume more. I look forward how Silver Age Batman gonna be. I am happy with Rocksteady working on other Batman game. I wish Rocksteady developing new Superman, The Flash or Wonderman games in future. :)

#31 Batman AA just released in 2009 then AC came out last year so then Silver Age Batman possible come out 2013/2014. So that not rush year of release new Batman unlike "I am so tired with that franchise" COD release every years from Activision. Also Ubisoft will not release Assassin's Creed every years when Assassin's Creed 3 come out this christmas as their last AC series to be release before release next main series or next spin off series in few years time. I just wish Activision let developers give COD break for few years.

I knew Rocksteady wouldnt making Batman every years. They want take their time with franchise. :)

I don't think people really know how significant this really is. If they're doing a silver age Batman, I think it has something to do with the Justice League film coming in 2015. Rocksteady wants to introduce other characters from the Silver Age like The Flash or Superman to get people familiarized and pumped for the movie. But then again, it's just my own speculation.

I think it would be cool if they looked into that scrapped Batman game Arkham by Gaslight. A full kind of Steam-Punk Batman game. I know prequels and alternate versions/universes get convoluted but I think that the Noire style would be perfect for a Rocksteady prequel.

I just want to see a proper sequel with playable Azrael and fully-fledged co-op. This is a great idea, but I want the gameplay advances to be made in the Arkham franchise first. This can be a spin-off that they can pursue after we see a real game mechanic advancement.

If, however, this is made first, I expect it to be XBLA.

@55: Yeah, Gotham By Gaslight's one of the best Elseworlds tales out there, and the footage looked pretty decent.

@61: The introduction of Barry Allen (the second Flash) started the Silver Age.

Please say yes. Playing as Adam West, complete with "bop" "pow" and "bap" effects and matching trumpet sounds, with Arkham combat would be the single most fun and entertaining brawler ever made. It would even top Bayonetta on the laugh-out-loud awesome scale.

You have no idea how disappointed I was that the 70s Batsuit didn't have that stubby Adam West face mask to go with it.

IMO they should keep focussing on the Arkham Storyline. That is an awesome and dark story. If they do a prequel, they should do an Arkham prequel, like Arkhma Reborn or something. Batman's first encounter with the Joker would be awesome because that may show how much Batman pissed Joker off and vica versa, but please, keep it in the Arkham Storyline! I love that so much!

I doubt anyone here read the IGN article that had a poll drumming up who would people be interested in RS tackling---anyway, in that poll they brought up Constantine from Hellblazer. I think a Hellblazer game would have been awesome.

That said, I too trust RS and look forward to donning the cape and cowl once again. Hopefully soon.

I'll call this now.
red Hood will be the main villain of the game. It will conclude in the waste disposal factory where he get's thrown into acid and becomes the Joker. I'd say it will show the death of the original Robin too, kinda making Batman a lot more gritty. Less major baddies too and Batman will be a lot more forgiving from the start, progressively getting more brutal with touch choices to make. I'd say it will take place a fair 10 or so years before asylum.

Erm, the Original Robin was Dick Grayson. He didn't die, he moved on. He's now Nightwing, and he's featured in Arkham City.

Lets not forget that they don't tend to mess about with the pre-established background that much - as the second Robin (Jason Todd) is the one who was killed by the Joker, unless this game jumps around in time a lot, I can't see the origin of the Joker and the death of Todd in one game. Also, neither of these arcs would traditionally feature the JLA.

Batman creates the Joker fairly early in his career. Unless they work this event into the end of the game - or completely recreate the Jokers origin - It doesn't involve the JLA.

In fact, I can maybe see them doing that. If they did, they could start with the creation of Joker, jump to the death of Todd, jump to the attempted murder of Barbara Gorden etc - showing the key stages in the evolution of the Bats/Joker relationship. I'm still not really sure how they would involve the JLA though.

Rocksteady needs to take a break from Batman for a while. They should work their magic on a Superman game, or a Green Lantern one, hell even do a Wonder Woman one.

im with SonikkuHedgehog/#8.
I really want a superman game. maybe with the man of steel movie coming out they will bring a game out aswell.
Unless Batman has a real good team up. I dont see where you can go further from AC. a prequel is a good idea, but maybe a flash back memeroy type of missions would be fun. play important events in batmans life. have the whole story one big memory. meeting other JLA members, deaths of friends and what not. Biggest thing i find that really make a game is the re-playablity... once u finish the story and challenges we need sumthing to do. even if its solving or stoping small crimes, as long as theres always a propose to go on patrol

my wish: after a great superman game have a superman/batman game itself

As long as there is another batman game, I don't really care when it takes place, I know I'll love it anyway. Rocksteady has yet to disappoint me with a batman game.
