Warner Bros. Montreal Working On Current Gen Title

Postby Harvey Bullock » Jun 29th, 2015, 7:30 pm



Arkham Origins Developers Hiring For Open World Project

As reported by IGN, it appears as though the developers behind the prequel to the Arkham saga are hard at work creating a new release for the current generation of consoles - most likely a sequel to 2013's divisive Arkham Origins.

On the studio's website, several job opportunities are posted which point to applicants having experience with the Unreal engine, a staple of the Arkham franchise since its 2009 début.

Most recently WBGM have had a hand in creating Arkham Knight's DLC content, and with Rocksteady announcing their departure from the Arkham series it looks as though they're going to be carrying the torch for the foreseeable future.

I'm excited! Knight's gameplay with WBM's writing team is drool-worthy :adam:

I'm so glad we will be getting more Batman-games. I guess after all the teasing in Origins and Origins-Blackgate it might be a Suicide Squad-game. Could also use the hype of the movie to draw some new fans in.

This is gonna be awesome! I loved Arkham Origins and every game just keep getting better in my opinion. I wonder if they'll keep the drivable Batmobile, except obviously with the Asylum Batmobile.

This is very good news. I wonder is it Suicide Squad game or is it a AO sequel. I hope it's neither Robin's first appearance or Long Halloween. If it's Robin's first appearance, they can use Dual play more than in AK. And Robin to be playable in the city too with Batman.

I hope this time they make truly their own version of Arkham series combat, I don't want it to be reskin of AK, instead adding new variations of gameplay.

And keeping with those cool new boss fights.

This is really great news. The more lore and world building we get, the better. And like someone said, matching WBM's storytelling abilities with Rocksteady's gameplay mechanics, this game could and will be perfection.

I don't know why, but when I read current gen, I thought it ment 360/PS4.

I hope its just a sequel to Origins, Suicide squad seems to have been done to tie into Assault on Arkham.

And I kinda hope we don't get riddler. Arkham Knight really pushed me with him.

Blasphemy! How dare you! Lol. The Riddler stuff in Knight is phemoninal man. Don't let him beat you!


Anyway-this is AWESOME news. I really like Origins. I expected and "City Expansion" with it, and that's what we got, along with a great story, strong characters and more great gameplay.

I think a lot of the hate for Origins would have been diminshed in Montreal had more time to work the bugs out. Surely they will receive more time this go around.

I really hope it's Origins 2 and not Suicide Squad. I really hate how DC is shoving the Squad down our throats in every form of media.

I still cannot forgive the DC Animated "Arkham" movie. Lol-total waste of the Arkhamverse...

You could also argue they are shoving Batman down our throats. I think it would be cool to get to play a whole story in Batman's universe without having him as the only real playable character. I think I'm in the minority though.

You know, after finishing Arkham Knight, I'll take any Arkham game. I don't want the series to be over.
So much potential for them to explore. Batman: Beyond Arkham? Batman: Arkham Assault?

I am excited for this. I always appreciated WBGM's efforts on Origins. Sure it wasn't perfect, but it was pretty dang good.

I may be tarred and feathered for saying this, but honestly I feel that Arkham Knight has enhanced my appreciation for Origins. You can tell a lot of the ideas in AK were borrowed from Origins, or vice-versa. Either way, there was a lot of stuff done well in Origins. Plus I think a little bit of the shine has worn off of Rocksteady's reputation after so many things gone wrong in AK. With the almighty Batman gods shown to be mere mortals, maybe it'll help people to keep things in perspective and realize that WBGM can also turn out a decent Batman game.

Eh. While I am all for WBM making another Batman game, I hope that they move away from the Arkham franchise. After that ending for Arkham Knight I feel as if whatever they do, it will not matter in the end (for obvious reasons).

I would prefer that WBM start a new Batman universe and develop their own versions of our beloved characters. That way there would be no worry of having to stay consistent with the proceeding games: they would be granted free rein, allowing endless storytelling opportunities.
