Batman's got a special holiday message for everyone, it appears. On the Batman Arkham Facebook page, Warner Bros. dropped a teaser that they'll have an announcement planned for December 31 with more details to come next week. Could the Bats have a big game announcement looking or should we check out anticipation for the reveal of some Batman social-casual-mobile game? The Bats is the embodiment of mystery.
I'll admit that it's difficult not to think the announcement won't be directly related to the Batman Arkham Asylum franchise. Our first clue is obvious, the teaser was made on the Batman Arkham Facebook page, but that's just a PR outlet and Warner Bros. could use it for whatever they pleased. However, we also know that Rocksteady Games, developers of the first two Batman Arkham games, has been working on something since the release of Arkham City. It's very likely that it's a next-gen Batman game.
Let's be realistic here, though. How often does anything involving Batman, a holiday and a surprise not end in an explosion or a murder of some kind? Batman's got a laundry list of villains who make sure holidays always suck in Gotham City. If I lived there I'd avoid holidays like the plague. Hopefully Batman's got something a bit more festive in mind than the Joker poisoning the champagne like he always does.
Ready for more Batman, everyone? So soon after Arkham Origins? Or should we hope this is a movile Arkham game and Batman gets to take a breather for a while longer?
