First Two “Arkham” Games To Be Remastered?

With new entries set to be released for several major video game franchises in the next year or so, it doesn’t come as a huge shock that game producers have been considering remastering the older games in a series to allow those who missed out on the previous entries last generation to have a go.

Some went all out for it (eg. “Halo: The Master Chief Collection”), some opted not to bother (eg. Naughty Dog not doing the “Uncharted” trilogy). One that might be having a crack at it is Rocksteady Studios and their critically and commercially successful “Batman: Arkham” games.

IGN Italy reports that according to their sources both “Batman: Arkham Asylum” and “Batman: Arkham City” will be getting HD remasters for next gen consoles.

“Batman: Arkham Knight,” the fourth game in the series and first for next-gen consoles, marks Rocksteady’s final game in the franchise and is due out on June 23rd. Rocksteady also handled those first two entries, but let WB Montreal take the reins for the prequel-style third game “Batman: Arkham Origins”.

No further details about the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game have been released, or if there’ll be a PC version available as well with some better optimisation.
