Batman: Arkham Origins Rumoured for Next-Gen E3 Reveal
Written Thursday, March 28, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
More rumours pointing to Warner Bros. upcoming Batman Arkham title confirmed last month for release this year have surfaced today, suggesting that Batman: Arkham Origins could be heading to next-generation and current consoles, with Rocksteady once again handling development.
French website Gameblog claims it was given the tip by unnamed industry sources, with the 'Origins' suffix pointing to previous rumours stating that the game could be a prequel set during DC's Batman Silver Age period in which Bats first encounters the Joker, with Justice League members like Green Lantern and Superman tipped to make appearances.
With Warner already confirming that a Batman Arkham title is coming this year, the source's claims that Batman: Arkham Origins could be revealed at E3 2013 and released in late 2013 don't seem all that outrageous. Yet, until some official details are confirmed, this is firmly to be considered pure speculation for now.
