Will there be two Batman games, Silver Age and Arkham 3?

February 17th, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

So to update the story it seems thee might be two games coming. It appears Rocksteady could be busy working on the Silver Age game (JL prequel?) set to release sometime in 2014. But what about that game that WB stated that would come out later this year on the conference call?

Time Warner’s site posted new job postings for Warner Bros. Montreal, hinting at a coming release. Listings for a Producer and Creative Director indicated that prospective employees will “work with its game development team responsible for expanding the DC Comics universe in the interactive space.” Though with the hiring times and a potential fall 2013 release date, the job positions could very well be for future projects as well. Remember it was Warner Bros. Studios in Montreal and Burbank who were responsible for taking the Arkham City port to the Wii U last year and if the latest job postings are of any indication, the Montreal developer may be behind the Batman: Arkham threequel.

The studio’s senior producer Ben Mattes tweeted last week the following before removing it (I hate it when they do that) : “In just 2-3 months, our project will be announced (in grand fashion) and it’s going to be big!”

Grand fashion? That would be just before E3. Although we don’t know what the game will be called or if it’s tied to Arkham franchise, given all the information accumulated in the past weeks, I would bet that Warner Interactive’s new game is the third installment in the Batman: Arkham storyline (Arkham World?). So maybe 2 games, a dynamic duo you could say. It appears the Batman games could become shared , much like how the Call of Duty Franchise is split between Infinity Ward and Treyarch. Perhaps one to focus on more traditional super hero fare and the other to continue in the vein of Arkham, with more gritty realism? What do you guys think? Is there a such thing as too much Batman? I think if both are well done it could be awesome.

What do you guys think of the Silver age game? What do you hope to see from a new Arkham game as far as gameplay, villains, and allies?
