RUMOR: Batman: Arkham Knight to be announced tomorrow?

February 28th, 2014 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

According to Kotaku, game retailer GameStop has sent out a new shipment of Batman banners to their stores which might be advertisements for the next Batman: Arkham game.

Pictured above, the new banners are said to be going up on March 4th. This is supposedly around the time that Arkham Asylum and Arkham City developer Rocksteady have marked as the window to announce their next project.


Tomorrow sees the new DC All-Access video hit. It will be an all-games edition. Rumors are saying that it’s a perfect opportunity to announce the next installment of the Arkham franchise, Batman: Arkham Knight.

In addition there’s some signs that the primary antagonist of that game will be Hush.

The Batman: Hush Facebook page, which is operated by Warner Bros., posted an image of Hush with the following status update:

“Remember a little appearance by somebody in Arkham City? Well things may be about to get more interesting next month…”

The teaser for the new DC All-Access is below:

Kevin Conroy has previously mentioned that he’s working on a Batman: Arkham game.

This is all unconfirmed of course.

Batman: Arkham Asylum was released in 2009, the sequel Batman: Arkham City followed in 2011. The third entry, Batman: Arkham Origins, developed instead by Warner Bros. Games Montreal, served as a prequel to the series instead of exploring the story threads left open at the end of Arkham City.
