Batman: Arkham Origins and Release Date Confirmed

Warner Bros. have confirmed the release date of Batman: Arkham Origins to be October 25th, 2013. It will release for all major current generation consoles, and a spin off mobile title called Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate will release for the 3DS and PS VitaWB Montreal has taken the helm of Batman: Arkham Origins, and Armature Studios will be developing the mobile version. WB Montreal has full access to original developer Rocksteady’s custom Unreal Engine, and will employ it for Arkham Origins.

The story is set many years before the previous Batman: Arkham installments, and will help to define much of the universe that’s been implied through the first two games. Batman will meet many new characters, and develop long running relationships with them. One has to wonder if elements of the Justice League will be present in this prequel. It’s also confirmed that Batman: Arkham Origins will be Game Informer’s May Cover Reveal.
