Warner: Arkham Asylum 2 release is “not October”

Monday, 1st February 2010 15:06 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Warner Bros. has told VG247 that Batman: Arkham Asylum 2′s release date is “not October,” following what looks to be a slip up on the company’s German site.

Earlier this afternoon, Warner’s German site published a supposed October 2010 date for the Rocksteady sequel. Bottom line: it’s not true.

“The ‘German web site tags Arkham Asylum 2 for October’ story is based on inaccurate information on the German Warner site,” said a rep in an emailed statement.

“That information was taken down a couple of hours ago, accordingly.

“We haven’t announced a release date for the sequel to Batman Arkham Asylum yet and I’ll let you know as soon as we have any news.”

Speaking on the phone, the spokesman said the sequel’s release date is “not October”.

The game was revealed at the VGAs back in December, with a teaser trailer indicating Arkham has been moved inside Gotham City itself.

Since then, other then Warner taking over as publisher from Eidos, nothing has been mentioned on the sequel, although a Game of the Year version of the original has been listed.

    I’d be surprised if the game comes out this year. August 2009 to October 2010 isn’t a very long time to make a full sequel (assuming they started working on it on the day of the first game’s release).

    I’m still betting a load of stuff is going to get reused from the first game. I sure it does come out this year.

    expect only slightly altered character models

    the fighting will be almost identical, if they follow the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ school of thought, to be honest, if they do to much to the fighting it’ll only ruin it…

    maybe you’ll play half the game as robin or batgirl, the fighting mechanics would be the same but they’d just have different animations.

    considering the joker and scarecrow we’re fully realized playable characters in the bonus stuff on the first game. this could be happen..

    i wanna play as bat girl, and when i run i want her cape to rise up in the wind to show off here tight little latex covered ass

    mark my words, there will be a sex female robin

    2 interlinking stories of batman after joker, and robin after two face

    look how sexed up they made harley quinn and poison ivy and people loved it

    I think the base-mechanics should go untouched but as far as graphical assets go i’m sure it’ll all be the same stuff.

    Its funny how alot of people seemed to want Robin in the game seeming to forget just how much of a stupid character he is.
    Female Robin wont happen, the games are meant to respect the comics, giving Robin a sex change would be way to much liberty from the devs.

    I want Robin so he can die an incredibly horrible death.

    Yeah but she was only in one comic (that i know of, she was Catwomen after that).
    And Robin is a male in everyones eyes anyway, making him a girl in the games would just seem wrong.

    but think of the ass!!!!

    she’d have an ass like Mirada’s (i know you’ve noticed), but you could directly control that ass, can you image that!

    I think one year isn’t enough for making the sequel! if they do we should not expect a real game like the first one.
