Batman: Arkham Origins and spin-off Blackgate revealed
The next highly anticipated title in Rocksteady’s Batman series has been revealed to be Arkham Origins, a prequel to Asylum focusing on a younger Batman and his first encounters with famous allies and villains.
It will be developed by Warner Bros. Montreal rather than Rocksteady but they have access to the modified Unreal engine so that it will play and look similar to previous installments.
Whilst WB Montreal are focusing on the PS3 offer of Origins, Armature Studio will be taking up the helm on Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – famous for the Vita port of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. It will be a 2.5D exploration action title exclusive to handhelds and will take place after the events of Arkham Origins.
Fan favourite character Deathstroke will feature prominently in Arkham Origins, as evidenced by the official cover of the next gameinformer magazine which can be seen below.
Sailor Harley Quinn, anybody? We assume the sexy themed Harley Quinn trend will carry over.
