Batman: Arkham Origins Revealed

GameInformer.com has a preview of the cover story from the May issue of Game Informer Magazine, revealing Batman: Arkham Origins, an upcoming prequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City coming to Windows and consoles on October 25, 2013. They offer this trailer where the folks from WB Games Montreal show off some concept art while talking about it being "humbling" to work on a "franchise of this magnitude" as they are "standing on the shoulders of giants" in following the success of Rocksteady's previous Arkham games. They talk of this being the first Arkham game set on the streets of Gotham City where "we have eight of the best assassins in the world who have come together in Gotham City on one night, Christmas Eve of all nights, to kill The Bat." The print edition of the magazine should be in subscribers hands in a couple of weeks, and in their Batman: Arkham Origins Hub will be home to details about the game they will share online. In the meantime, here's how they describe what they know:
Warner Bros. Games Montreal has taken the mantle of the bat from Rocksteady Studios this time around for Batman: Arkham Origins. WB Montreal has full access to Rocksteady's custom modified Unreal engine to capture the look and feel of the Arkhamverse. As the title suggests, the game takes place years before both of the previous Arkham titles when a young, unrefined Batman encounters many supervillains for the first time. On our full cover image below, fans will recognize the assassin Deathstroke, who appears for the very first time in a core Arkham game.

So no Rocksteady and this....

Heading up the vision for Arkham Origins is creative director Eric Holmes, known for being the lead designer of open world action hits The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction and Prototype. A self-professed lover of comics, Holmes even wrote the miniseries Transformers: Megatron Origin for IDW.

does not fill me with confidence. Quite the opposite in fact. I'm curious if WB is trying this in-house to save money and that's why Rocksteady isn't doing it.

And playing the Flash would be a hoot. It was like playing a speedster in CoX. There's no shortage of heroes it'd be fun to take a stab at for games of the caliber of Bats Arkham.
