Kevin Conroy says the Arkham games are no more…

September 12th, 2017 by Marc Comments

While one of the best – and most successful – parts of Batman’s recent history has been the Arkham Asylum games, it looks like the franchise is now done.

The news comes from the Dark Knight himself, voice actor Kevin Conroy, who addressed the crowd at Wizard World, Nashville.

Conroy, best known as the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne on Batman The Animated Series, also played him on the Arkham games – although it should be noted that he was played by Roger Craig on the WB Games installment, Arkham Origins, so there’s always the chance that he’s not completely in the know.

Anyway, when asked if another he was set for another Arkham outing, the actor replied ‘no’, adding: “I can’t believe that they’re not going to do another one, but they’re not. Isn’t that amazing? They made literally billions of dollars on those games, but no, there’s no plan to do another one. Sorry.”

The full video is below… do you think the Arkham series is finished? Or could it just be Conroy’s involvement?

Let us know.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
