Batman's getting sloppy. Voice actor Kevin Conroy accidentally confirmed the existence of a new Batman game via Twitter over the weekend. Maybe. Prior to deleting the offending tweet, he answered some fan questions with the ever evasive "no comment" maneuver.
This isn't the first time he's made a slip up like this. Conroy briefly mentioned a new entry into the Arkham series with the following comment at Comic-Con in Dallas last May:
"I can talk about it now, we've been working for about 9-10 months on the next Arkham. We all signed these contracts, the studio likes to completely control the roll out of any product. So it's now been announced and it's an unbelievable game. I still can't say anything about the game, but it's just amazing, a huge cast and big story. It took almost a year to write and put together."
Everybody thought he was talking about Origins at the time, but Conroy clarified via a now-redacted Twitter post that he was talking about a new Arkham game and not Origins.
To add credence to this rumor, Rocksteady invited various press members to their London office for an exclusive screening of a new game that will be announced next month. The significance of this is that the developer hasn't announced or released anything since Batman: Arkham City in 2011. The bug-riddled Batman: Arkham Origins title released last year was developed by the young WB Montreal studio.
We'll see in about a month just what it was Rocksteady showed in their studio last week. At the moment, one thing is certain: either Conroy can't wait for them to announce their next project, or he's a better troll than the Joker.
