Warner Bros. Teasing December 31 Batman Arkham Announcement

Posted on December 24, 2013 AT 07:22am

Warner Bros. has added a teaser to its Batman Arkham Facebook page that points to an announcement on December 31, but what could it be for?

The teaser images simply states “Save the date,” along with “12.31.2013,” so not really much to go on there.  “Visit this page on December 31st for a special announcement…more details to come next week!” a caption alongside the image reads.

Now the first thought is DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins, but the fact that the publisher uses the phrase “special announcement,” leads me to think that a DLC reveal would be a little underwhelming. The other option is a next-gen release of Arkham Origins on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, which stands an outside chance of happening.

The final option is a brand new game, and seeing as next year is the 75th anniversary of Batman, having appeared in Detective Comics No. 27 back in 1939, this would be a logical move to celebrate.

To add fuel to this, back in May Kevin Conroy, voice of Batman in the Justice League animated series and Batman in DC Universe Online, stated that he was in the next Batman game after Arkham Origins in a since deleted Tweet. Presumably this game—if it actually exists—would once again be developed by Rocksteady, seeing as Warner Bros. Montreal is still working on DLC for Arkham Origins.
