Rocksteady Announces Their Final Batman Title, Arkham Knight
Were you seriously expecting all those leaks in the past 48 hours to just end up as tears and broken dreams? This isn’t the Fallout series. Game Informer has taken the wraps off what will be Rocksteady’s final entry into the Batman Arkham Saga (What, King?) and it seems like they want to go out with one hell of a bang.
Introducing Batman: Arkham Knight, the end of the trilogy that restored faith in Batman and licensed games this generation.

After the disappointing Arkham Origins last year, which wasn’t developed by Rocksteady, the original developers return with some new additions to talk about already. First up, Gotham is going to be a lot more accessible, and Rocksteady have already promised an open-world larger than the one found in Arkham City, which is saying quite a bit. In order to get around (and hopefully more), Arkham Knight will feature the Batmobile as a core feature of gameplay, allowing you to hop in at any moment and roam the streets of Gotham (or so we expect).
Rocksteady also say that the narrative will aim to round off the story they have built up so far, with the return of Two Face, Harley Quinn and Penguin. Despite earlier rumours, Hush will not take centre stage as the main antagonist, replaced by the one and only Scarecrow. Not a bad compromise, and there’s a lot that can be done with that particular fear-inducing psychopath.
Of course, more details will be revealed in the coming months, but what we do know now is that Arkham Knight will be exclusive to next-gen consoles and PC. So best you start saving up if you plan to see the end of this trilogy come the end of the year.
