The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight

WB has announced Arkham Knight via this month's Game Informer. It'll be a big open world Gotham featuring Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, and a driveable Batmobile. Out for PC, Xbox One, and PS4 later this year.
Original story follows:

An early GAME UK retail leak has spoiled today's big Batman reveal: it's Batman: Arkham Knight, the final game in the Arkham series, and it'll be out this year for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

Last week, GameStop started receiving marketing materials for Arkham Knight, which match up with the box art above. This will be the third Batman game by Rocksteady, the studio behind Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Last year's Arkham Origins was developed by WB Montreal.

Looks like the Batmobile is driveable, and Scarecrow will be the main villain. Seems like there's no current-gen version, which is good news, as they won't have to scale down anything to fit into old hardware.

Rumors have swirled about Rocksteady's next Batman game for quite some time now, after Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy accidentally mentioned that he was working on an Arkham game that was not Origins.

I haven't even played Arkham Origins yet! Although what I've heard about it has me a little wary, more of the same without any real imrprovements or additions. And I also note from the article that Origins was done by WB and not Rocksteady. Maybe that means that Arkham Knight will be awesome again seeing as it's back in the creator's hands.

i'm rather conflicted on if i want to get this or not

 

I want to play this game but at the same time I don't want to support WB/Rocksteady after their snide comments about not fixing the bugs in Origins

Hang on a second. You're right, I remember reading that too. So Rocksteady did have a hand in Origins?

Except it wasn't Rocksteady that refused to fix the bugs, it's Warner Bros. Games Montreal.

 

I'm excited about this game, though somewhat saddened it's the last.

Yeah a lot of repetitive gameplay, but alas, a decent batman game since  Batman forever on snes (the best batman game to date IMO )

Yeah, it's a shame that it's the series finale! I expected several more Arkham games to be honest.

I'll be playing it regardless though because I'm a sucker for anything Batman. But yeah, their way of handling bugs was terrible.

This image right here promises something awesome though!

I wonder if having his cape in his arm is some sort of teaser for the next franchise? Batman Beyond ? Or just him hanging up his cape?

A Batman Beyond game could be great. They're about to introduce Terry McGinnis into Earth-Prime in the comic-books as well, so it would be neat if these games did the same. But it might as well be something insignificant.

^Nice fan art, haha. That's the suit from The Dark Knight/The Dark Knight Rises but modified by a fan. Not really liking that to be honest.
