Warner Bros. has announced Batman: Arkham Origins, a third game in the celebrated series.
Developed by Warner Montreal and not by series creators Rocksteady, Batman: Arkham Origins is planned for an October 25th release this year on current-gen systems.
The game takes place before Batman: Arkham Asylum and will document a time when the Dark Knight was relatively young and encountering Gotham's various supervillains for the first time. As featured on Game Informer's upcoming cover, one of those supervillains will be Deathstroke, a dangerous mercenary.
The lead designer of Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction and Prototype, Eric Holmes, will serve as creative director on the game, which WB Montreal hopes will “capture the look and feel of the Arkhamverse."
