It’s been over four years since the release of Batman: Arkham Knight, and the franchise’s gamers are still waiting anxiously for another game to be released.
There have been nonstop rumors and reports throughout the years of another Arkham game, but so far, nothing has come to fruition. On Monday, another hot rumor regarding a potential sequel came out.
Sabi, a Twitter user that’s apparently known for video game leaks (via Shaun Prescott of PCGamer.com), tweeted that the next game in the beloved Batman franchise will be called Arkham Legacy.
Because Sabi has been right before in regards to revealing key details in the video game industry, some Arkham fans are sure to read into these tweets seriously. Sabi revealed back in May that a Nintendo lawyer sent them “a Cease and Desist” after leaking correct information regarding E3.
Last month, WB Games Montreal – which developed Batman: Arkham Origins (2013) -teased a potential sequel in a tweet to honor the 80th anniversary of Batman. The tweet appeared to show the symbols of Ra’s al Ghul and the Court of Owls, leading some to speculate that those could be the villains in the next Arkham game.
Kevin Conroy – who voiced the Caped Crusader for Arkham Asylum (2009), Arkham City (2011) and Arkham Knight (2015) – revealed that he won’t be voicing Batman in another Arkham game.
If there is another game, a leading candidate to voice the Dark Knight is Roger Craig Smith. He voiced Batman in Arkham Origins and in numerous animated films, including Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants and Batman Ninja.
There aren’t many indications that Rocksteady Studios is interested in doing another Arkham game, but WB Games Montreal continues to provide hope for fans with their teases. Fans have waited a long time for a sequel to be announced, and perhaps they’ll get their answer soon enough.
