It has already been confirmed that Rocksteady are working on the next Arkham game, but now we have the first leaked photo.
Rocksteady were behind the mega successful Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City games, while WB Montreal were behind the not so successful Batman: Arkham Origins game. But Kevin Conroy the voice of Batman claims the next Batman will be Unbelievable and Amazing.
This photo was leaked by a Gamestop employee, and many other Gamestop employee’s have stated that they have received the photo as well.
As you can see, it is the classic Batman Arkham logo, but this time with fire in the inside of it. There are many rumors going around about what this means but I think I have the best explanation:
In Batman Arkham City you meet Azrael a mysterious man with not much back story, but he says some interesting quotes, and I think this quote perfectly sums up this photo:
“I bring a message: dark days are coming, Batman. The Prophecy is coming true, you are the warrior who will close the gates of Hell, you are the one who will save this day, and in doing so, events will occur that you cannot stop, from the ashes of Arkham the fires will rage and Gotham will burn, and you, you will burn too.
Could Arkham 4’s main Villain be Azrael? could Gotham be completely destroyed? could we get a mentally unstable Batman? I don’t know, but if this is all true, which I think it is then we are in for a hell of a game, also at the end of you’re meeting with Azrael, he says ‘We will meet again’.
There are a lot of loose knots at the end of Arkham City, like Azrael and also Hush steals you’re face and runs away as Bruce Wayne, so some speculate that he will be the next Villain, but whatever happens I cannot wait for this game!
