Warner Bros has announced Arkham Knight, the third Batman game by Rocksteady, the studio behind Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.
The game will feature a big open-world Gotham (supposedly bigger than Arkham City’s); familiar Batman villains Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn; and a driveable Batmobile, WB revealed to Game Informer.
Arkham Knight will be out for PC, Xbox One and PS4 later this year. If you pre-order, you will get a playable Harley Quinn DLC.
While the game is being promoted as coming some time in 2014, retailer GameStop’s listing is a bit more specific with a supposed release date of 10/14/2014.
When contacted, the Arkham Knight‘s publisher refused to clarify whether that’s a real date or a placeholder. They merely reiterated that the game is coming in 2014.
Last year’s Arkham Origins was developed by WB Montreal.
