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. (Batman, Industry, Next-Gen, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

First 2 batman games were amazing, but when will devs. learn to stop milking games ?!
_QQ_  +   479d 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.
SilentNegotiator  +   479d 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...

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

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-akaB  +   479d 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

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

Devs? I'm sure it was Warner who said, "We love money, make us another Batman game."
aLucidMind  +   478d 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.

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

No way, it's a prequel! Who would have thought Arkham Origins didn't mean sequel!?
The_Infected  +   479d 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.
NastyLeftHook0  +   479d ago
maybe its actually called that, maybe not, who knows? anyways i hope rocksteady takes on x-men!
Thatlalala  +   479d ago
We deserve a Decent X-men game at least.
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.

TechTandoori  +   479d 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.

"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.
Myze  +   479d 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).

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.

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 ;)

Yes but this rumor has been talked about for awhile now so I don't think so, maybe the prequel for rocksteady thing maybe April fools.

Anyway about April fools whoever submits those kind of articles should be banned from submitting news on n4g.

Anyway I've been asking for a prequel for ages exactly about the batmans first encounter with the joker! This is great news if true!

chedck your steam library...oh you use discs copies? they still make those archaic things?
CEOSteveBallmer  +   478d ago
Physical copy archaic? In a technical point of view but its still more superior than digital download. You need a larger hardrive a very fast and constant internet. Almost all gamers wants a physical copy. Yes digital is the future but not yet until everyone in the world has internet connection at lightning speed. Internet is not as mainstream as electricity you know. there are still people who use "dial-up" sad but true. Owning, Holding, Feeling a physical media is a Big deal especially if your a collector. MS bashed the bluray and there are rumors they will include it in their nextbox, so steve ballmer I think is ready to eat his words.

Deku-Johnny  +   479d ago
The setting of the game has been a rumour for a long time and hasn't been confirmed although it would be pretty cool I imagine their next game will continue on where Arkham City left off. This year does seem quite likely and it'll most likely come to all console available at the time of release (PS3, PS4, Wii U, 360, PC). And last but not least I'll be buying it day one.
Romudeth  +   479d ago
This is probably an early April fool's joke guy.
kostchtchie_  +   479d ago
will buy this day one on PC, but hope after this third one they do a different superhero
C4RR4NZ4  +   479d ago
Xmen does seem like the best choice.
Viper7  +   478d ago
Origins..? really now.

I really hope they'll throw that name in to the garbage and figure out something better.

I'm getting sick of these shitty title name extensions like origins, revolution, revelations, reloaded, underground, retribution, rebirth, retaliation etc.
Buljo  +   478d ago
Or revengeance haha

yeah I'd rather not have a prequel at all. I want a full fledged sequel with Scarecrow and his fear gas plan that was so heavily hinted at in Arkham City. Joker is done with. Leave him be. It's like Hamill said - recognize a high and leave it at that.

A series like this really doesn't need chronological games. Batman can follow FF or Zelda just releasing standalone titles. I hope they really play up the time period.
