Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is teaming with Rocksteady Studios, the makers of the acclaimed best-selling video games “Batman: Arkham Asylum” and “Arkham City”, for a third instalment in that series that will introduce ‘Justice League’ characters into the action says Variety.
The game is reportedly being developed as a prequel that revolves around Batman’s first meeting with the Joker, and it’s based on the Silver Age of DC’s comics. It’s not to be confused with the upcoming “Injustice: Gods Among Us” game due out next year.
This new game would likely hit 2014 at the earliest. “Gangster Squad” scribe Will Beall remains attached to pen the proposed new ‘League’ film which would hit in 2015 at the earliest.
Warners is said to be revealing their upcoming film plans for DC’s characters in the next several months. Many have wondered as to the future of Batman post-Nolan, with speculation suggesting the next take on the Caped Crusader will likely be akin to the still gritty but much more stylised ‘Arkham’ games.
