Warner’s just announced Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum sequel, known as Arkham City.

The game releases next fall for PS3, 360 and Games for Windows

Game Informer also has it on its new cover, which features Catwoman in the two covers planned by the mag.

It was announced earlier this week that the game would be featured in OPM and OXM, but Warner and GI’s beaten them to the chicken.

The sequel to Arkham Aslyum was announced last December at the VGAs, where a teaser trailer showed that Arkham Asyum itself was moved into Gotham City.

It also showed the Joker and Harley Quinn for the game, confirming their appearances in the game.

Also mentioned for the Rocksteady sequel was baddies Talia al Ghul, Mr. Freeze and Two Face.

The UK dev was bought earlier this year by Warner, who will be publishing the game this time instead of Arkham Asylum publisher Square Enix.

We can only think of one word right now: it begins with P and ends with umped.
