Arkham Asylum 2 Not Coming Until 2011? -

Gamervision says, "The surprise hit of 2009, Batman: Arkham Asylum provided gamers with the first really great Batman gaming experience. Thanks largely to its success, Eidos revealed plans for the franchise to get a new installment every year, a fact punctuated by the announcement of Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 at the 2009 Spike VGAs. While it may have only been assumed that Eidos would be able to get a new title on shelves in 2010, it looks like we're going to have to wait a little longer to don the cowl once again. Our industry source has revealed that Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 won't be hitting shelves this year, and is likely not to arrive until early to mid-2011."

i hope this game doesn't get delayed.

BeaArthur3214d ago

It takes as long as it takes. Better delayed than unfinished.

Christopher3214d ago

Yeah, I actually prefer taking more than a year to make the next game, regardless of how good it is after only six months. Gives them time to really deliver some new and well-tested gameplay elements.

Eidos can take as long as they need, just put out another quality Batman game.

RockSteady is developing it, and WB is publishing it.

"Batman Arkham Asylum was one of Eidos Interactive's (now Square Enix Europe's) most successful games in years. Warner Bros. owns the rights to the property though, and they're cutting in on the sequel.

Warner Bros. has announced that they will be publishing Arkham Aslyum 2 worldwide, seemingly dropping Square Enix Europe from the deal entirely. Eidos and Warner Bros. worked together to publish the first game.

This isn't the first time this has happened to Eidos. They partnered with LucasArts in 2005 to publish the highly successful Lego Star Wars, only to be dropped for subsequent games.

Looks like they can't catch a break. Arkham Asylum 2 will be out next year courtesy of Warner Bros. and Rocksteady Studios."

It would be a dream come true if it came out this November 100% finished and completely polished. It would go along great with Dead space 2 and Bioshock 2 (three games that are in a way similar to each other)

LtSkittles3214d ago

I knew this would happen.The release date wasn't announced, and people assumed 2010, but I think RockSteady, and WB know how packed 2010 is, and decided to go for an early to mid 2011 release date.

Two-Face3214d ago

I want this game so bad.

Kalowest3214d ago

Yes, this gives us something to look forward too, in 2011.
