VIDEO GAMES: Rocksteady's BATMAN ARKHAM CITY Prequel To Drop 3Q 2013?

It's rumored that Rocksteady's third entry in the Batman Arkham series will drop in the third quarter of 2013 for the PS4 and next-gen X-Box. Continue on for more details about where this latest development fits in with earlier reports.

Banner Arkham Origins by Rocksteady

Moments ago, a new rumor surfaced specifying that Rocksteady's next DC Comics video game adaptation will be titled Batman Arkham Origins and that it will be released sometime during the 3rd Quarter of 2013 on Sony and Microsoft's next-gen consoles.. Footage is expected to debut at the annual video game convention E3 in June. As previously thought, the game is said to be a Silver Age prequel that will include Justice League members Superman, Green Lantern and others. Hopefully, the chatter that will undoubtedly spring forth from this latest rumor will prompt WB and Rocksteady to issue an official statement.

Take note that this new report partially conflicts with a previous news story which stated that an Arkham City sequel NOT prequel would be released in 2013 and that the Rocksteady Silver Age game wouldn't be released until 2014 at the earliest. Furthermore, that earlier report also specified that Rocksteady WAS NOT the developer of the Batman sequel.

A few months ago, Time Warner CFO John Martin let slip during an earnings report that an unspecified Batman game will indeed be released between Oct. and Dec. of 2013. We'll have to wait and see whether Martin was referring to the Silver Age prequel from Rocksteady or the Arkham City sequel from an as-yet-unspecified developer. CBM will keep you updated on any further developments as the story unfolds.
