[Report] New Batman Video Game To Be Revealed At DC FanDome Event


It's been five years since Rocksteady Studios released Batman: Arkham Knight, the most recent installment of the beloved Arkham franchise.

Ever since the release of Arkham Knight, fans of the video game series have held out hope for a fifth installment. There have been nonstop rumors, reports and teased over the years, but nothing has come to be.

Over the past few months, however, there have been several intriguing reports regarding the announcement of a new Arkham game. And it sounds like there could be some very good news on this front in a couple of months.

According to a report from Jason Schreier of Bloomberg, a new Batman game will be announced at the upcoming DC FanDome virtual event on Aug. 22. It wasn't specified if the game will be part of the Arkham series.

"The new plan is to unveil the Batman game in August at a digital event called DC FanDome, and the Harry Potter game will be revealed later, a person with knowledge of the plans."

Tom Phillips of previously reported that Rocksteady is "working on a game centred" around the Suicide Squad. Phillips also reported there's a registered domain "," which supposedly "refers to the unannounced Batman game currently in development at Batman Arkham Origins studio Warner Bros. Montreal."

Warner Bros. Montreal developed Batman: Arkham Origins (2013), the third game in the Arkham franchise. It served as a prequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009) and Batman: Arkham City (2011). Those two games were also developed by Rocksteady.

Arkham Knight ended on a cliffhanger, and fans have been left wondering about Batman's fate. The game's ending left open the possibility for a sequel, if Rocksteady or WB Games Montreal were to develop a fifth game. If the rumored and upcoming Batman isn't part of the Arkham series, then it's safe to say that we'll never know what happened to the Caped Crusader in Arkham Knight.

At any rate, the signs are there that a new Batman video game will be announced soon. Whether it's an Arkham installment or not, gamers and fans of the iconic DC Comics superhero will be ecstatic about any Batman-related video game.
