By Ishaan . March 4, 2014 . 7:27am

Update: Game officially confirmed. Trailer viewable here.

 

It looks as though news of the next game in the Batman: Arkham series is out in the open. Batman-Arkham.com discovered the game listed on GAME.co.uk, along with mention of a number of new features that will be included in it.

 

According to GAME’s listing—which has now been taken down—the next game in the series will be titled Batman: Arkham Knight, and is in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will take place in Gotham City and make the Batmobile driveable.

 

GAME’s listing also described Arkham Knight as the “finale” to the Arkham series, and mentioned that the Scarecrow, among other villains, will be making his return.

 

Additionally, Batman-Arkham.com are also reporting other details on the game. According to the site, the game will allow players to play as Harley Quinn in challenge maps as a pre-order bonus. The image of Harley on the game’s cover above appears to support this.

    After cutting the multiplayer and newest DLC from Arkham Origins on Wii U, looks like they’re just dropping the system entirely now… :(

    • Noor Mahmoud

      Eh, nothing of value was lost.

    • Lloyd Christmas

      At this point it shouldn’t even be a surprise.

    • Marcus

      Makes sense since 3rd party titles preform poorly on the wii u.

      • idrawrobots

        Especially when they don’t have all modes and DLC.

    • http://nabe.kokidokom.net/ Cybersteel

      There’s still X from Monolithsoft.

    • DanielGearSolid

      Wii U couldn’t handle this maaaaaan

      • idrawrobots

        Maybe not, but have we seen game play yet?

        • DanielGearSolid

          Rocksteady said it couldn’t be done on ps3/360… WiiU is closer those, in terms of power, than ps4/x1

    • subsamuel01

      I don’t think the Wii U hardware could handle it, unless they sacrificed some aspects of the game.

  • DCBlackbird

    You know I wanna say I’m tired of Batman, and that this was inevitable….. But it’s the goddamn batman and I’m gettin it…

  • eilegz

    no ps3 or xbox360 version? sigh…

    • http://confitdent.com thedood7

      This is probably so they don’t have to scale down when producing the game. Since it’s a next-gen game, they gonna make sure it’s truly a next-gen game. Eh, I don’t mind. I’m getting this on PC, since i’m not sure yet when I’ll get the PS4 or Xbox One.

  • DanielGearSolid

    !!

  • Atwa

    Glad I skipped Origins, since this was rumored a long time. Filler game in between the real sequel.

    • Herok♞

      I skipped Origins because I am waiting for the full dlc included edition this time.

    • http://nabe.kokidokom.net/ Cybersteel

      I raged so hard on that Clocktower bug.

  • Fastchrone

    so, no love for wiiu?

    • Herok♞

      I wouldn’t say that yet, seeing as this was a leak and not an official announcement, we could still see this on Wiiu and PS360.

      • subsamuel01

        I wouldn’t get my hopes up, the DLC was cancelled for Wii U plus Rocksteady never actually developed for the Wii U. Armored edition was done by WB Montreal the guys who did Arkham Origins. This is a fully next gen game, unless this game is also coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 I don’t see it coming to the Wii U.

          Sad but true.

  • malek86

    Looking at that cover, I hope they are not just aiming to have the Batmobile as the new game gimmick upon which the whole marketing will be based. See also: the bow in Crysis 3.

  • http://nabe.kokidokom.net/ Cybersteel

    Can’t we have Arkham Country? Arkham World? Arkham Universe?

    • Arus

      I want Arkham Beyond.

      • Learii

        I am with you man

    • s07195

      SUPER ARKHAM GALAXY CONFIRMED.

      ….Yeah, that would be going overboard. >.>

      • http://nabe.kokidokom.net/ Cybersteel

        Batman Arkham Multiverse

        with Batman from different alternate realities

  • Kango234

    I officially need a new console now.

    • CozyAndWarm

      A PC is a much better investment imo, there’s always that option

      • Kango234

        I definitely do plan on building one down the line, but as of right now it won’t have MGSV or FFXV, which are the games I’m most hyped for.

        Also indies run just fine on my laptop.

      • subsamuel01

        Depends on the types of games you play, a PC is a good investment but there are so many games on PS4 and X1 that I want to play like Infamous, Uncharted, The order 1886, God of War, Halo, Gears. People who buy consoles tend to buy them for their exclusives. If consoles and PCs had all the same games then buying a console would be a waste.

      • Arcana Drill

        Not if you like japanese games… which are the focus here on siliconera.

        Not trying to be mean or anything, but saying that a PC is a better investment in a japanese game/niche focused site is veeeeeery subjective.

    There’s a trailer for it.

    Arkham Knight is the game we deserve but not the one we we need right now…

    Because Warner Bros still needs to fix Arkham Origins -_-

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/BaoZakeruga BaoZakeruga

    And yet another game not coming to the wii u. Story of the year -_-

  • James Enk

    not that i am shocked but i was hopping it would also come out on the WiiU

  • http://gentlerobot.com/ Gentle Robot

    Since when is Bruce Wayne modeled on Sterling Archer?

  • Dexward

    I’ll be getting this. It’s gonna bother me a bit though since I’ll be buying a PS4 soon and I have the first two games saved in my Xbox360.

  • fearlubu

    Please, for the love of Dick Grayson, have other characters be playable multiplayer free roam.

  • Kornelious

    Sewwt, been itching to see how this all comes to a conclusion, plus a DRIVEABLE batmobile! now were talking :)
    next-Gen only though huh, Well, at least the PS4′s library it getting bigger….a little. I’ll have the PS4 by then though so no big deal :)
