Batman: Arkham City confirmed

Written by David Stellmack


No release till next year
Rocksteady, the developers who had a surprise hit with Batman: Arkham Asylum last year, has now confirmed that the name of the sequel will be called Batman: Arkham City. Despite hopes for a release this year, apparently that was never in the cards and the plan was always for a fall 2011 release.

The success of Batman: Arkham Asylum led Warner Bros to purchase a significant stake in the developer. Batman: Arkham Asylum has sold over 3+ million copies on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms. Warner Bros has stated that the Rocksteady-developed Batman franchise will continue to be a significant focus for the publisher going forward.

While little is actually known about the sequel, the decision to move the gameplay beyond Arkham Asylum and into the City is the next logical step for the franchise. The game is said to feature enhanced gameplay that is actually based on feedback from players as well as enhancements that the developers have always targeted for the sequel.

Until the release of Batman: Arkham Asylum, multiple attempts at delivering a Batman title had actually delivered little in the way of success. Arkham Asylum has been showered with excellent reviews from both the media and players alike. Sources tell us that the sequel is better yet and will continue to deliver on what made the first game in the franchise successful.
