New Arkham Game Revealed

Yahoo! Finance transcribes a Warner Bros. post-earnings conference call that reveals plans to release another installment in the Batman Arkham series this year. This was posted last week, but sat unnoticed until noted by VG247. Here's the simple word on this:

And we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise. So all in all, we expect Warners to post another very strong year in 2013. And with a little luck, the year should be as good or maybe even a little bit better than 2012.

Asylum was so clean, city had a bunch of random boring stuff that didn't flow as well. Still good in general, but not as put together. I beat Asylum very quickly, I'm only about 50% in City and keep trying to go in and finish it but not really caring that much to.

I hope they return more to the structure of the first game.

Loved the first game, story and game play was top notch. Second games story was kinda lame, too many non-related story lines? I dunno, just didnt flow like Asylum. I also thought they added too much to the game play, really just needed to tweak and refine the moves\gadgets from the first but they seemed to try and throw everything in but the kitchen sink, overkill.

I liked the first 2 but but the 2nd was using the same formula where you had a bigger world. I something new and different in the 3rd not a bigger world than the 2nd.

Great news, I just finished both Asylum and City. Maybe it's just me, but I found Asylum to be a bit more polished. After finishing City, I went back to Asylum and played some challenge maps, and my immediate thoughts were "wow, the combat seems much more fluid than in City". Not that the combat is bad in City, but for whatever reason I found it a tad better overall in Asylum.
Some other (minor) issues I had with City:
- Steam overlay doesn't work at all (popular discussion without an actual solution in the forums)
- loading times of City are horrible compared to Asylum (despite having -if at all- only slightly improved graphics). I even moved the game to the SSD, and the loading times are still insanely long.

I hope that the fact that the announcement was so subtle and that Rocksteady isn't the developer doesn't turn out to be what I fear it could be.

I want to know who the developer is, as Rocksteady Studios was reportedly working on a TMNT game.

man if someone did a TMNT game in the original Eastman and Laird style, like "return to new york" it would be pretty awesome.. especially if they used the Frank Fosco art

I am in, I enjoyed the previous two quite a bit. The fact that they are being comparatively "under the radar" about this leaves me a bit skeptical as to what exactly this game is and who is developing it. Rocksteady isn't doing it...so who is?

Agreed, great games both. Hardest part of both games was one of those Bat Computer simulator missions in City where you had to dive down and go through the tunnel.. Tore my hair out over that.

I LOVED Arkham City. It took the good concept of Arkham Asylum and improved on it. I'm absolutely stoked - gimme more Bats (sorry, not talking about you xXBatmanXx )!

Agreed, sir! I hope it's out for Halloween or sooner!

Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

I found Arkham city too much of retread of the original game and it lacked in both plot improvements, originality or graphical advancement.
Not a bad game in isolation, but compared to the first, it was more like large DLC than a "new" game.
If the next Batman game is "more of the same" then I'll skip it. I played that game twice already.
