Batman: Arkham City, follow-up to the bone-crushing, dark Batman: Arkham Asylum, is in development for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 for a Fall 2011 release, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment said this morning.
The sequel, in development by Rocksteady Studios, has players taking Batman into Arkham City, the new maximum security home for all of Gotham City's criminals. This new prison is described as a heavily fortified walled-prison in the heart of Gotham City.
The game will include story that "draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight," according to the press release.
Check out the first teaser trailer here.
Update: Whoops, never mind, that trailer was the one they premiered at the VGAs. Sorry about that.
Update Part Two: As commenters have pointed out, the new Game Informer indicates Catwoman will be playing a part in the game and is that Two Face in the background too?
