There have been several hints that a new Batman Arkham game is under development and will release sooner than expected. Furthermore, these leaks reveal that the game will take place three years after Arkham Origins.
Alleged Employee Leaks New Batman Arkham Game
Many fans believed that Arkham Knight game in 2015 was a great ending to the Batman trilogy that spanned across the PS3 and PS4. However, DigiSpectra reports that there might be yet another installment in the franchise. An alleged employee of Warner Bros. Montreal claimed that the studio is making another installment with the title being Batman Arkham Insurgency.
The said employee claimed that he is leaving the workforce and decided to leak information about the new game, as per PlayStation Universe. Aside from the title, he revealed a few other interesting tidbits about the Batman game. To begin with, it has supposedly bee in development since 2014 and takes place three years after Batman Arkham Origins.
Fourth Installment to Include New Features and Villains
Next, Batman and Robin will be playable with Dick Grayson taking the role of the Dark Knight's sidekick. The game will also feature some new locations in Gotham which include a coastal area that will be the same size as the three islands from Arkham Knight. On the other hand, the game will allow players to fast travel from the Batcave and Wayne Manor.
It is worth noting that the Batmobile will be returning but with improved mechanics. This time, the studio has supposedly abandoned the vehicle's battle mode and will instead focus more on the weaponry and chase sequences. Similarly, combat has also been enhanced as it will be more 'complicated' than the basic formula.
Moreover, the game will include boss battles and the villains' Dollmaker, Maxie Zeus, Killer Moth, Two-Face, Dusan al Ghul, Mad Monk, Joker, Riddler, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Ventriloquist, Cornelius Stirk and Blockbuster. Finally, Owlman will be the main villain with the Court of Owls and Talons making an appearance. The new Batman Arkham game will supposedly release this November but the studio has yet to confirm anything.
