New Batman Game Confirmed for 2013, Might Be Silver Age Prequel
Gamers might see the first appearance of the Joker
Video game publisher Time Warner says that a new video game in the Batman series will be launched later during the year, although the company has not yet officially revealed a developer or a name for the new project.John K. Martin, the chief financial and administrative officer at Time Warner, tells an investor meeting, as quoted by Yahoo, that, “And we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise. So all in all, we expect Warners to post another very strong year in 2013. And with a little luck, the year should be as good or maybe even a little bit better than 2012.”
A Silver Age based Batman video game was rumored during late 2012.
Sources are also saying that original series developer Rocksteady is not involved with the new title.
The new game would offer a prequel experience and would allow players to witness the first time that the Batman and Joker meet and fight.
