Batman: Arkham Origins To Be Announced At E3?
The follow-up to Batman: Arkham City and Arkham Asylum may be announced this summer. A new report suggests that the game, supposedly called Batman: Arkham Origins, will be unveiled at E3 this June.
Gameblog states that Origins is a prequel. It takes place in the 1950's or 1960's and may feature the Justice League. Apparently Rocksteady is currently casting for Green Lantern and Superman.
These details mirror a report from last summer that Arkham 3 would take place in the Silver Age. That report said that the founding of the Justice League was a key element of the plot. The game would supposedly show the first encounter between Batman and Joker - the start of a decades-long conflict depicted in Arkham City and Asylum.
This isn't the first time that we've heard the title Batman: Arkham Origins. In January, Warner Bros. registered several Arkham-themed domain names. Origins was one of the domains registered, as was Arkham Legends and Arkham Universe.
The fact that today's report shares details with another unconfirmed report doesn't mean that it's true. Even if the Silver Age rumors don't pan out, though, an E3 reveal seems plausible. Warner Bros. confirmed in February that a third Arkham game will be arriving this year. Why not announce it during E3?
