Announced via WB Financial Report...

Quote:
During the call, Time Warner’s CFO and chief administrative officer John K. Martin stated, “And we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise. So all in all, we expect Warners to post another very strong year in 2013. And with a little luck, the year should be as good or maybe even a little bit better than 2012.”

I'm all excited! Arkham Asylum was simply most awesome game I played in years while Arkham City was cool but no where near as awesome as Arkham Asylum, despite eye-candy graphics. And ye, Arkham City was a bit short while Arkham Asylum was really long story wise.

City was a clear victim of Arkham's own runaway success. By that I mean Arkham was to put it bluntly so ridiculously close to gaming perfection by the time City came along with a far more open approach, lots of extra graphical trickery and Bat toys we were all just hoping for another outing as close to that Arkham experience as was possible. And this just wasn't the case. City was bogged down by far too many things overall. Puzzles had become way too common place and were vividly/horrifically on display all around you making the normally grunge looking world of Gotham look like a fair ground. The length of the game felt extremely short compared to Arkham's which felt just right. The open world nature of the game just made the experience lose that something that Arkham delivered so masterfully. I could go on.

I'm hoping the next outing is a true return to the solid foundation Arkham gave us which is odd as normally I'm well up for more open worldyness. As City proved to me I just don't think it suits Batman is the only underlying problem.

Paul Dini is confirmed to not be working on it, that's more important. Rocksteady's absence is only a rumour.

Actually it can usually be disabled in-game, but yeah no PhysX for no-one not even us that go for it. downsampled deadx9 over here.

I just meant that id prefer that devs just didnt bother with it at all, look at amd of late, they're not trying to implement pointless gpu features just to make games appear to have more going for them then whats really there. Shame about driver support though, from what ive read that is, never owned an amd card.

AMD Drivers are pretty solid at the moment actually.

As for a new Arkham game: Drop GFWL and either implement PhysX in a better way or drop it all together for something that will run well for everyone (within reason). I'm not just talking about AMD users here either, I've heard enough complaints from people with Nvidia hardware about it to be sick of it all together. It wasn't too bad in Borderlands 2, I could run it at medium in most areas - but there was room for improvement.

My view is the opposite, Asylum was way too linear and got more boring quickly. Plus playing as Catwoman was a good break from Batman himself. Combat is also improved on City and there is more to do after the main story has been beaten.

Now if the game got out of the way even more then we would have a true masterpiece.

At this moment I'm not optimistic about this new Batman. First, not made by Rocksteady and supposedly not the same writer involved. We'll see.

I would love them to wait and make it for new consoles and PC and expand even further on the size of the game from Arkham City... This time I want the WHOLE of Gotham to explore! I want to be able to explore the whole Wayne mansion, play as Bruce Wayne with proper missions as him, like having to go to parties and events or business meetings (this could be dynamic and if you miss a meetings or something as Bruce because you were doing a Batman mission people start to question where you were and why you didn't turn up...). I want a massive main story with more villains, loads of side missions involving more villains. I want to be doing one mission, whilst in the distance the bat signal lights up the sky and I have the choice of either leaving the current mission to attend the next one or ignoring the new one and carrying on with the current one. I want to drive the Bat mobile around Gotham, I want to fly the Batwing around the skies land on a roof top and stand all menacing on a gargoyle statue because I'M BATMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THIS WOULD BE EPIC!!!!

The first game is in my top 2-3 games of the last 5 years, and was something i looked forward to coming home from work and actually playing.

Great story and atmosphere, enjoyable albeit simplistic combat, no guns which is a refreshing change in a game and while it was essentially linear it never felt that way, even the challenge modes were fun.

Second game gave me some performance issues so it got put on my list of games that will get looked at when i get new hardware as i don't want to play it unless i can enjoy it properly.

A third game would be good, but i doubt i will be interested if it's not Dini and Rocksteady, Aliens CM is a perfect example of how to mess up a movie tie-in, and while i'm not saying who will take over will be as bad a developer as Gearbox, i don't think WB Interactive have many developers suited to such a project.

I agree. MUCH bigger metropole needed in Batman3 and the Batwing / Batmobile as main vehicles, driving from mission area to mission area or just searching the open city for clues where to go.

BatmanAC was kinda weird because the whole city was just a huge criminal fortress. Would be great to have a city like in the comics - normal ppl all around and you as the world's greatest detective should need to INVESTIGATE to find master criminals.
