Fresh Rumours On Batman: Arkham Origins
At present all we know is that a new Batman game will be released this year, as revealed in a Time Warner earnings call last month. Other than that we’ve heard enough rumours to warrant a trip to an asylum. But guess what, here’s some more rumours. Oh, not even the name is exactly confirmed yet so call it whatever you want really. I’m tending towards Batman: Sons of Liberty. It’s funny because his parents are dead.
Today’s rumours stem from French site Gameblog. The site claims to have been tipped off by an unnamed industry source and reports that the game is called Batman: Arkham Origins, it will be inspired by Batman’s Silver Age comics and feature appearances from members of the Justice League such as Superman, Green Lantern and possibly Wonder Woman.

Rocksteady is alleged to still be in the development driving seat after murmurs that the studio would not be doing the third Batman Arkham game. The game is also tipped to be revealed at E3 and st for release on next-gen consoles by Q3 of 2013. The third quarter of 2013 predates the release of PS4 by my calculations and it almost certainly predates the release of the next Xbox unless Microsoft isn’t telling us something. Well actually they’ve told us nothing just yet.
A lot of this sounds like grade-A rumour mill produce although an E3 reveal does seem likely and the Silver Age inspirations have been rumoured before from various other sources. My guess is we’ll see a new Batman game at E3 in June but we won’t get the game until late 2013 once next-gen has released. It’s either that or Warner Bros Interactive is releasing the game for current gen which isn’t a bad idea considering those consoles aren’t going anywhere.
