Batman: Arkham Legacy is name of new Batman game claim sources
Warner Bros. still hasn’t announced a new Batman game but at least we might now know the name and a hint of what it’ll be about.
The lack of any new Batman game since 2015’s Arkham Knight remains one of the most baffling mysteries in gaming this generation, given how quick most publishers are to put out a sequel to a successful game.
Neither Rocksteady, who are believed to be working on some sort of games a service title, or WB Games Montréal, who made 2013’s Arkham Origins, have released a new game all generation and there’s still no official word from either about what they’re working on.
Unfofficially though it seems as if WB Games Montréal’s new game is called Batman: Arkham Legacy and will feature the entire ‘Bat family’ of playable characters.
WB Games Montréal has been rumoured to be involved with several cancelled projects, all or most of which were intended to be Batman titles.
Last year, one of their developers claimed the studio is working on two new DC Comics games, one of which has long been rumoured to be a Batman game involving the Court of Owls storyline – which is what seemed to be being teased last month.
Despite assumptions that those teases would end in an official reveal nothing ever happened, but online leaker Sabi, who proved very reliable around E3, suggests that the new game has the very non-descriptive name of Batman: Arkham Legacy.
Interestingly, comic book movie insider Thomas Polito then replied to the tweet, seeming to imply that the information was true.
The mention of a ‘playable family’ is a reference to the Bat family concept from the comics, which includes all of Batman’s many and varied sidekicks and allies.
Traditionally, that includes multiple Robins (there have been several – many of which went on to create new alter egos, most notably Nightwing and Red Hood), several Batgirls and/or Oracle, and Batwoman.
There are many other more obscure characters the game could chose to include as well, such as more loosely associated (sometime) allies such as Catwoman, Huntress, Azrael, and Creeper.
Whether that in turn implies multiplayer is unknown, although if that’s the focus of Rocksteady’s game it may be that Arkham Legacy is intended as a more traditional Arkham experience.
Or maybe the rumours simply aren’t true. Either way we still no nothing official and have no idea when an announcement might be made.
