The ‘Batman Arkham’ series of games is getting a third entry this year, as confirmed by Time Warner’s recent investor call. You might recall that we blew the doors off the news yesterday. Well now, thanks to a recent job listing, it appears that the next-gen game will break cover in a few months.
Both call on applicants to, “work with its game development team responsible for expanding the DC Comics universe in the interactive space”.
One states, that the studio’s project will be, “focused around the AAA action/adventure space”, and the other calls for an, “expert in next-generation AAA action/adventure games”.
Could Batman Arkham 3 be going next-gen?
The timing could be perfect, as Warner Montreal’s senior producer Ben Matte tweeted this last week:
VG247 has been told by its sources that Rocksteady Studios is not developing the next Batman Arkham title, which could focus on a ‘Silver Age’ setting, sparking rumours that the game is in fact, a prequel.
What’s your take on the above?
