Batman : Arkham Origins coming to PS4, XBOX 720 this year [updated]

Batman : Arkham Origins is the next installment in Batman : Arkham series being developed by Rocksteady Studios rumored to released on PS4, XBOX 720 and current gen consoles this year. Batman Arkham Origins is set to unveil at E3 2013 and Oh it won’t be a sequel. Arkham Origins will be a prequel set in the silver age of comics which ran from mid 1950 to 1970. Arkham Origins will also feature appearances from other justice league members like fan favorite Superman and Green Lantern.

Update : Separately, VG247 sources claim this new project is not in development at series creator Rocksteady Studios. That development house is rumored to be working on a stylized prequel that will detail the Dark Knight’s first encounter with the Joker. It is not expected until 2014 at the earliest.

First 2 batman games were amazing, but when will devs. learn to stop milking games ?!

_QQ_1754d ago

you can never really milk batman when he has thousands of comics and story possibilities, i wish they would make it in Gotham though.

SilentNegotiator1754d ago

Hey, its one of the few GOOD superhero VG adaptions in years. Let it at LEAST stretch out past a trilogy before giving them the business for making too many too fast.

Now if only Superman could get a decent game...

NewMonday1754d ago (Edited 1754d ago )

the Silver Age will be a very different style and tone, here is some reference:



Freak of Nature1754d ago

As long as the game/series stays fresh and innovative, fun and brings new aspects gameplay wise, new interesting locations and charcaters the game can still evolve and not be just another cash cow...

Baka-akaB1754d ago

I'll wait and reserve final judgement , but i strongly dislike the silver age era Batman . I hope the content might be "silver age" based , but that the art and design wont be a complete silver age makeover

kenshiro1001754d ago

Yes, Superman does need a decent game. Superman 64 still gives me nightmares...-shivers-

oof461754d ago

Devs? I'm sure it was Warner who said, "We love money, make us another Batman game."

aLucidMind1754d ago

How is this milking? Rocksteady stated flat out that they were planning on making this a trilogy sometime during the lifetime of Arkham Asylum or during the development cycle of Arkham City.

Abdou231754d ago

@Disagrees, it's people like you who ruin the industry then cry about it. ( Dead Space 3 )

miyamoto1754d ago

franchises can be good if handled in the right way. That why Batman character stood the test of time. More better than Superman.

Jamaicangmr1754d ago

Yeah i bought the 1st 2 and love them but i think they can wait alil before making another one.

i will get this for ps4 as well as all my friends. ps4 the console to get this new gen ddont want to be left out on myspace aka x720 when ps4 aka facebook comes out!

BinaryMind1754d ago

No way, it's a prequel! Who would have thought Arkham Origins didn't mean sequel!?

Ghost_of_Tsushima1755d ago

It's funny how eveyone says Xbox 720 yet no one knows what it's called. Just say the new Xbox.

On topic: I really like Rocksteady so Batman will be a definite buy for me.

NastyLeftHook01755d ago

maybe its actually called that, maybe not, who knows? anyways i hope rocksteady takes on x-men!

Thatlalala1754d ago

We deserve a Decent X-men game at least.

xXBlondieVanHarlowXx1754d ago (Edited 1754d ago )

I love X-men as much as the next-person, but they've been done before (alot). Whether the games were good or not. I'd prefer they'd try a character who hasn't really gotten a shot at video games (much like Batman before the Arkham games). I'm talking about characters like Superman, Green Lantern, Daredevil, Wonder Woman, Spawn, the Watchmen.... I personally think a Green Lantern game where you could fly around Oa would be amazing, the environments would feel completely different.

Baka-akaB1754d ago (Edited 1754d ago )

Except Batman has had shots at games every console generations between cartoon adaptations , movies and original games .

WUTCHUGUNNADO1754d ago (Edited 1754d ago )

Hey Blondie here is a 1080p screenshot of a new Daredevil game their working on.

omi25p1754d ago

I remember Xmen Legends on PS2. That was such a good series.

Axecution1754d ago

Ghost_of_Tsushima1754d ago

thaimasker1754d ago (Edited 1754d ago )

How do u know that the their next system will even follow the xbox brand ..... not saying it won't but still.

DragonKnight1754d ago

Because it'd be business suicide to kill of a successful brand in favour of rebranding.

LKHGFDSA1753d ago

"new xbox" is a stupid name.
it's like the "new ipad", it won't always be new.

Rocksteady Studios isn't developing the next batman.

Byeka1754d ago

Rocksteady not developing the next Batman is a rumor which also says that they are working on the next to next Batman about his first encounter with Joker.

MikeMyers1754d ago

"Separately, VG247 sources claim this new project is not in development at series creator Rocksteady Studios. That development house is rumored to be working on a stylized prequel that will detail the Dark Knight’s first encounter with the Joker. It is not expected until 2014 at the earliest."

If that's the case this will be the game I will be looking forward to instead.

Myze1754d ago (Edited 1754d ago )

While it kind of sucks if they aren't, considering how good the first two Batman games were, it would still be great to see them make some other super-hero game.

I'm not sure what exactly I would want to see, but a dark-gritty version of some other super-hero would be great. Maybe a Superman game with the tone that the new movie has (at least appears to). If Rocksteady wants a challenge, making a Superman game in a dark world with free-roam capabilities (like Batman) would be a real challenge (to make it good, anyway).

Gamer-401754d ago

Arkham City very good game.

But new Batman episode coming new Xbox?
Impossible, next-gen box only a Kinect.....or not:S

pissed9991754d ago

Visuals wont be any better than Arkham City on the pc.
Pc big superior time, just buy a pc.

Baka-akaB1754d ago (Edited 1754d ago )

Or most people wont care about that and just enjoy it on the hardware they got .

You guys need to stop be missionaries trying to educate some so called savages , you just come up as petty and jealous . Everyone knows pc is superior given its nature , let it go .

vanethe1754d ago

agreeed , im a pc player but i dont bash on every little thing , just enjoy the game and shut it

Sparkticle1754d ago

And yet there are numerous examples of Sony fanboys coming to the Wii U page and trolling the shit out of its hardware.

For me it's not all about better graphics by having a good gaming PC, i prefer them for the better performance and smoother gameplay.

@Honest_Gamer a £500 PC won't max games for 5 years, my 5870 from launch can't max some newer games without going below 60fps at 1080p, and i got that in late 2009 for £300. But i haven't upgraded it because it plays everything i play at fast speeds.

To keep up you need a top card every 2-3 years. That's over £200 minimum, i fail to see how you can build the rest with just £300, a good quality psu is over £50 alone.

"Just buy a PC"

And skip the PS4 and 720? Please. They call it next gen for a reason, so we don't have to buy it for current gen or spend double for a high end PC?

In my opinion I think the next gen versions will look just as good as the PC.

"In my opinion I think the next gen versions will look just as good as the PC."

Your opinion is wrong lol.

RioKing1754d ago (Edited 1754d ago )

I prefer my exclusives :D

For the money of a nice pc ($800-$1200) I could buy the PS4 & Nextbox and be more than happy. But hey, to each his own ;)
