In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect.

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.
