Warner Confirms New Batman Arkham Game for 2013

Paul Lilly

Rumor has it the third Batman Arkham game will be a prequel to Arkham Asylum.

Warner Brothers has yet to officially announce a third installment to its popular (and fun) Batman "Arkham" franchise, though parent company Time Warner did let the bat out of the bag during a conference call with investors, in which the primary topic was the company's fourth quarter earnings. Outside of a short statement, little is known about the upcoming title.

"And we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise," said John K. Martin , a senior corporate executive for Time Warner. "So all in all, we expect Warner to post another very strong year in 2013. And with a little luck, the year should be as good or maybe even a little bit better than 2012.

You have to go all the way back to last summer to dig up potential details about the upcoming title. According to a report in Variety , developer Rocksteady Studios is working on a prequel that revolves around Batman's first encounter with the Joker. Other than that, very little is known.
