The Next Batman Game To Be Set In The 1950’s

According to Variety the sequel to Batman Arkham City will be actually be a prequel set in the 1950’s, and will be ‘highly stylized’.

The game is said to revolve around Batman’s first meeting with the Joker and will be based on the Silver Age of DC Comics from the same time period.

This is the time in which Batman and chums founded the Justice League of America. I expect Kris is running about the room screaming like a girl right at this moment.

Variety say the game is most likely to appear in 2014.

  1. Sounds intriguing can’t wait to find out some more about it.

  2. Thinking of this game in the 1950s makes me crave a HD release of the original Destroy all humans! :(

  3. 50’s Batman was hardcore! His 1st appearance is free on DC ‘s comics site.

    In that issue he casually tosses a man into a vat of chemicals quipping “a fitting end for his kind”

  4. *looks forward to Rocksteady announcing every character and plot twist months before the game comes out like they did with Arkham City…..*

  5. Superman: “The door is locked. I need to find the key.”

  6. I’m sure it’ll be badass. Bring it on.
