That's the sound of Aoife wailing because she didn't get to break this story. Shame on you Ed. :(

Awesome!

Presumably this will also release on the next Xbox and/or be playable? Despite the latest rumour today about the chip architecture and the console having less backwards compatiblity (= :? ).

It's current gen only so far, but I'd be very surprised if that remained the case.

My thoughts exactly. Given that the release window for the next Xbox is this November or fall 2013; then releasing a game a month before on current gen would feel very strange to most consumers.

Even if it was, as I said if the next Xbox maintains the majority of backwards compatibility - i.e. some 360 titles may be dropped, then Batman: AO releasing on current gen wouldn't bother me so much. Keeping a previous console model just to play a handful of games is something I'd rather avoid

This just raises the question of 'What are Rocksteady up to?'

Should be good fun though, hopefully it isn't just more of the same, though that said I wouldn't turn that down - since the first two games were such good fun.

An Origins story? I wanted a proper sequel, it sounded like they were setting it up during the conversation with Azrael.

We'll still probably get one, but still I feel disappointed.

hopefully that's what Rocksteady are working on, and this game is being realised to please us until the next Batman instalment, but it does have Deathstroke, the second best fictional mercenary (after Deadpool) so that at least is awesome
rule 1: im always right
rule 2: if im not, rule 1 applies

Clicked on this hoping to see a trailer or a few images at least...Its quite unusual not to see anything from a game that is only 7 months away.

Hope rocksteady are making an actual Batman or maybe even a different superhero altogether.

Hopefully either Firefly, Hush or Maxie Zeus.

Speaking of Slade, isn't he in Arrow? Pretty sure he is, only seen the first six episodes so I can't be sure. Probably should get to watching the others. :|

Yeah he is in arrow, not until about episode 10 though really, you may have 'seen' him. I like that series, it's really cheesy but it's great fun.

I'm wary of this, I like a new developer - it should bring something different to the franchise, but another batman game so soon? What can they do to not make it like Arkham dlc, as good as the first two are, they're a bit the same.
It's all in the game...

Joker will be in it again, no doubt about that, if they're assuming he's actually dead in this storyline, it's a good way to get another go around with him (note, I haven't played the DLCs so I have no idea what happens in them and if he comes back or not).

I'm not entirely sure who else they can really use without it getting too obscure or too familiar now though.
