Warner Bros. Games Montreal has announced ''Batman: Arkham Origins' -- the highly anticipated third title in the Batman: Arkham game franchise will be released October 25th, 2013 for Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
Game Informer has revealed the synopsis for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins to be the following: "Eight of the best assassins in the world have come to Gotham City for one night, Christmas Eve of all nights, to kill the Bat." The first assassin seems to be Deathstroke, who was revealed on a recent cover of the magazine. See below.
Fans may be surprised to see that developer Rocksteady is no longer behind the franchise with Warner Bros. stepping in and having to fill some big shoes after last year's Batman: Arkham City was critically praised as one of the best superhero games ever made. In other news, 'Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate' will launch for the 3DS and PS Vita on October 25th and follow events that take place after the 'Arkham Origins' storyline.
