I tell ya, you know it’s gonna be a good day when you wake up to a new Batman game being officially announced. Even better when it’s by Rocksteady!
Obviously we all knew this was coming eventually. Even though I really liked Arkham Origins, it was pretty clear that the game was meant to tide us over while Rocksteady worked on a proper next-gen sequel. Its story was my favorite in the series so far, but Origins lacked the overall polish of the first two games.
Never fear though because Rocksteady is back at the helm and has just delivered one of the most exciting CGI trailers I’ve seen in a long time. There’s a lot of emphasis on the Batmobile in it so here’s hoping Batman: Arkham Knight will be truly open world. I’d give my left nut to play a GTA style Batman game.
Expect lots of Batman: Arkham Knight videos and news between now and October 14, 2014. Until then, check out the announcement trailer below and the two Game Informer covers from this month.
