Arkham prequel to be based on DC’s ‘Silver Age’

Posted By | On 11th, Jul. 2012 Under News | Follow This Author @MostUnfurrowed


According to Variety, Rocksteady Studios’ next instalment in the hugely successful and highly regarded Arkham games will revolve around Batman’s first encounter with the Joker, in the Silver Age of DC Comics.

Even in the mad, multi-canon world of graphics novels, that’ll evidently set the game prior to either of the Arkham games.

Also within the same period was the foundation of the Justice League, which when combined with Warner Bros. desire to pack more heroes into AAA titles, suggests Batman won’t be the only hero in Gotham.

Batman: Arkham City sold 2 million units worldwide in its first week alone and went on to sell over 6 million inside a month. Batman: Arkham Asylum sold comparatively less, clocking up 4.3 million overall, which is still an impressive figure.

The new title is expected to release in 2014 at the very earliest.
