Batman: Arkham Knight’s Plot Was Teased In Batman: Arkham City

You may recall that Rocksteady Studios included a tease for Batman: Arkham City in Batman: Arkham Asylum. If you were thorough in your exploration of the asylum, at one point you came across blueprints for Warden Quincy Sharp’s designs for Arkham City.

It turns out that a similar tease for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight was included in Batman: Arkham City as well. Game Informer confirmed with Rocksteady Studios that the Scarecrow Easter Egg in City—which you can see above—was meant to be a hint at the plot of Batman: Arkham Knight.

 

There was a barge in Arkham City, which was bringing in insects, which are one of the things that Scarecrow uses to create the fear toxin,” director Sefton Hill shared. “So we were kind of hinting at the fact that he hadn’t been killed by Croc in the first game. That he was still out there and plotting his revenge and taking his time about it.”

 

In Arkham Knight, the Scarecrow serves as one of the game’s major villains, and is holding Gotham City ransom using his fear toxin. As always, the game will feature multiple villains—including one called the Arkham Knight—and is slated for release this Fall.
