While accepting the award for Best Character at the Spike TV Video Game Awards, the Joker -from Batman: Arkham City - was seen holding a script for Batman: Arkham World and made a joke about spoilers. Now Rocksteady has not confirmed Batman: Arkham World, so take this with a grain of salt.

I'd say it was just a joke.

I think that depending on sales, it is very likely Rocksteady will make another Arkham game. I hope they get hired to do Man of Steel if Warner has the game rights back from EA, but Batman: Arkham (subtitle needed) is all but guaranteed.

i think it'd be awesome if they actually did throw the actual title in there. ...shows how much Rocksteady likes giving hints for Batman to rise up the anticipation. lol

this is obviously a joke. Arkham World would make no sense, the character is called the Joker, also he's dead so why would he have a script for the next game? Another sequel is almost guaranteed, but don't expect any info yet, apart from the in game easter eggs.

Here's the vid:

i thought maybe arkham state or arkham country.
seamuskeaneart - 12/11/2011, 8:42 AM
Arkham World is mentioned repeatedily by various thugs on the street in Arkham City.
Personally I think its a joke.
@ACira Really? you think hes actually dead, come on dude.
LMB10 - 12/11/2011, 8:49 AM
I'm fairly sure that was poking fun at the fans that were speculating that could be the name of the next game.
gamecreatorjj - 12/11/2011, 9:02 AM
i was think Arkham County, just be a huge ass arkham city with multiple small comunities owned by the gangs, or arkham spark em: Batman across the 4th dimension
TheRedSkull - 12/11/2011, 9:05 AM
Arkham world is pretty kwl but I'd prefer something to do with Gotham
Gyasiman - 12/11/2011, 9:08 AM
One of the thugs in the game goes "Whats next? Arkham State? Arkham Country? Big ass Arkham World" I laughed so hard when i heard that lol

Super Arkham World 64!!! *snort*

I hope it's true, under two conditions: No more Physical Riddles and no more dangerous animal fighting! That F**KEN Shark in the Torture Chamber scared the daylights of me ! The only animal I want to fight in a rematch is Killer Croc.

Hahaha... grif wasn't off that far when he said, "What's next? Arkham Planet?" But in all seriousness it's probably a joke...
joeker - 12/11/2011, 10:07 AM
if its true what would be the sequel to that *GULP* Arkham Galaxy! (ominous music)
dezdigi - 12/11/2011, 10:51 AM
Joker ain't dead!
Moakynubs - 12/11/2011, 11:31 AM
GUYS THIS HAS TO BE SERIOUS. THE JOKER IS ALWAYS SERIOUS.
PaulRom - 12/11/2011, 11:34 AM
Could be a joke. I'd love for Arkham Nation to be released, that could work well as an online game.
NextHero08 - 12/11/2011, 11:57 AM
"Alright guys did you see that?" No dude, we totally missed it. Derrrrr.
Odin - 12/11/2011, 12:20 PM
Well, sounds better then Batman: Arkham province.
seamuskeaneart - 12/11/2011, 12:58 PM
Planet Arkham
Checkmate - 12/11/2011, 1:38 PM
It was a joke.
Jer3miah - 12/11/2011, 1:56 PM
Joker IS dead. You guys just can't let go, just like Bats, lol. Karma is a biotch, and Joker felt it. Accept it. Mu-ha ha ha!
ColonelKilgore - 12/11/2011, 2:04 PM
The next game won't for awhile now anyways. keep it in your pants guys
cable23 - 12/11/2011, 2:33 PM
I definitely believe this is a hint to the new game. But I doubt it would be the title to it. Remember the past VGA's have showcased teasers towards the new Batman games from Rocksteady.
cable23 - 12/11/2011, 2:35 PM
And based on sales alone and the fact that Batman AC is the best reviewed game of this year a sequel is inevitable. I wont be surprised if we get some sort of confirmation by next years VGA's.
cwell510 - 12/11/2011, 9:19 PM
I'm calling it: Arkham Nation~BOOK IT!!!
Knightfall13 - 12/12/2011, 11:13 AM

I think the next game should be called "Batman: Gotham Asylum." I think it could work. From AA to AC the world got bigger and batman expanded his arsenal so if all the criminals in Gotham City just broke loose and started a big riot turning the city into an insane asylum Batman would have to work hard at saving the whole city and of course joker will still be alive by the end of the game and would be the cause behind the city going crazed. Also since batman can't save a whole city by himself they could incorporate nightwing and robin in this one a little better. It will also "fulfill" the prophecy that Azreal talk about with the city burning.

gotham city should be an RPG where you start as bruce wayne and earn XP towards becoming the bat, the world needs a good batman RPG
UnderTheHood - 12/12/2011, 3:39 PM
there is gonna be another game no doubt. it's too huge and too great not keep it up. i would expect them to keep with the arkham name. and joker is dead...for now...arkam city did reveal to the bat and joker the presense of the lazarus pit...joker mite make a comeback crazier then anyone expected.
UnderTheHood - 12/12/2011, 3:41 PM
but even without the j-man they could ressurect ra's no problem. but if mark hammil is down for another go rocksteady will bring him back
Moonwalker1991 - 12/24/2011, 9:18 AM
A sequel is coming. Arkham City is easily the best Batman game I've ever played. Wish I could have played as Nightwing or Robin in story mode. Hopefully that feature will be added in the next one. I can't help feeling that Batman somehow resurrected Talia using the Lazarus pit, even though it wasn't shown. I thought she had an interesting role in the game, as I never expected her to make an appearance. Hoping she has a similar role in TDKR, without dying of course. Loved playing as Catwoman. Not as fun as being Batman but enjoyable nonetheless. Honestly though, I have to wonder what the story of the next game will be, especially since Joker is dead. Or is he?
Moonwalker1991 - 12/24/2011, 9:27 AM
There should be an option to drive around the city in the Batmobile/Tumbler in the next game. Anyone remember the classic Batman and Robin game for PSOne?
