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_1604d 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.

SilentNegotiator1604d 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...

NewMonday1604d ago (Edited 1604d ago )

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



Freak of Nature1604d 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-akaB1603d 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

kenshiro1001603d ago

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

oof461603d ago

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

aLucidMind1603d 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.

Abdou231603d ago

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

miyamoto1603d ago

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

Jamaicangmr1603d 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!

BinaryMind1603d ago

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

The_Infected1604d 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.

NastyLeftHook01604d ago

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

Thatlalala1604d ago

We deserve a Decent X-men game at least.

xXBlondieVanHarlowXx1604d ago (Edited 1604d 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-akaB1603d ago (Edited 1603d ago )

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

WUTCHUGUNNADO1603d ago (Edited 1603d ago )

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

omi25p1603d ago

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

The_Infected1603d ago

thaimasker1603d ago (Edited 1603d ago )

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

DragonKnight1603d ago

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

LKHGFDSA1603d 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.

Byeka1604d 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.

MikeMyers1604d 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.
