Time Warner confirmed via an investment call last week that a new Batman Arkham game is due to be released later this year. Online gaming publication VG247 sources claim that the new Batman Arkham game won’t be developed by Rocksteady Studios, who are the developers behind the two previous critically acclaimed games.

“And we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise. So all in all, we expect Warners 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.”

  1. not developed by Rocksteadys studio…. hope that’s just a joke cause they have done a great job, no just graphically but setting the atmosphere and the story was very good. I don’t want a final fantasy 13 style game where is graphically beautiful and the game play is just shit…. WB you already suck with the Pc version.. let not ruin that franchise.

    1. Was just thinking the same.
      And no wonder I liked Arkham Asylum more, had it on console and City on pc.

  2. Maybe the new Batman Arkham game will be developed by WB Games Montreal… the same team who had re-developed Batman: Arkham City: Armored Edition.

      1. My WB contact made a mistake. No news of Arkham Asylum coming to Wii U. Still, chances are the next game will. WB has tons of games published on Nintendo platforms and Arkham City was on the Wii U.

      2. Scratch that – my WB contact made a mistake. But still, the next game will likely come to Wii U considering that Arkham City was on it.

  3. Please come to the Wiiu :) I see no reason why not. Batman Arkhum city armoured edition is actually amazing on Wiiu. The Wiiu version in particular.

  4. I’d be happy for it to come to the U; those who are developing the game better take some notes from the previous installments because they set the bar very high

  5. You lost me at “won’t be developed by Rocksteady Studios”. I will keep an eye on this one.

  6. Rocksteady has been very quiet lately, no news updates or anything on their website in a couple years. Could be part of the reason that they aren’t developing it. I hope it’s WB montreal.

  7. Hmm…I don’t know how I feel about this. A 3rd Arkham game is great news but not made by Rocksteady……ehhh I don’t like that its not Rocksteady…

  8. It’s not developed by Rocksteady, and I recall that the game had something to do with the Justice League.

    Not buying this.
