Report: The Next Batman Game Will Be A Prequel To Arkham Asylum

The next Batman game will be a prequel that centers around Batman's first encounter with the Joker, according to a new report.

According to Variety, the prequel to Rocksteady's Arkham Asylum and Arkham City will be based on the Silver Age of DC's comics from the 1950s. Variety says the game will be out in 2014 "at the earliest."

I've reached out to Warner Bros. for comment and will update should they respond.
