Arkham City Bio
Infamous psychiatrist Hugo Strange claims to have unique insight on the criminal mind from years of clinical study. He persuaded Mayor Sharp that the Arkham City project was the only way for Gotham City to eliminate crime and "rogue vigilantes" like batman.
Rumours persist of Strange performing ethically dubious experiments on inmates without consent, but unless hard proof comes to light, the Gotham public is happy to credit Strange with their dramatically reduced crime rate. Strange knows that Batman will hunt him down. He's counting on it.

Additional Information
Hugo Strange is one of Batman’s oldest, and most dangerous, foes. Hugo knows the human mind just as well as any other man on Earth and with this knowledge he correctly identified Batman’s alter ego as Bruce Wayne. Strange is just as psychotic himself as he is brilliant though, leading him to keep Batman’s secret to himself. Hugo Strange instead became obsessed with Batman, to the point where he would dress up as the Bat in private. His crimes grew larger and larger as time went on and by targeting both Bruce Wayne and Batman, Strange often has a much better chance of defeating the Dark Knight than any other villain in Gotham. Thanks to Hush__.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Hugo strange was never really in Wonder Tower but instead the Hugo we saw was a man-droid, a creation of Hugo Strange; Androids which take the guise of Strange to make Batman believe it is truly him. Hugo could 'return' to Arkham Three teamed up with Villains such as Hush and Jason Todd. These villains would be excellent choices as they would be a deadly alliance, Hush hates Bruce Wayne, Jason Todd hates Batman and Hugo hates both personas. They could control separate parts of Gotham and as side quests you could regain control of the City i.e. Jason controls the east and west sides, Hush controls the north and South of Gotham whilst Hugo controls the Center of Gotham. Hugo isn't really interested in territorial disputes but the fact that what he is doing is whittling Batman down, is a reward to Hugo in itself. Thanks to Arkham Maniac.

1/10 its possible Hugo could have survived. Plus, Rocksteady didn't use anywhere near Strangest full potential. He could be used a whole lot more, but in this case its more likely we won't see him return.

4/10

My personal guess is that he's dead and as for story purposes it was the best way for RS to get rid of Hugo Strange before he leaked Batmans secret identity to the public, but despite all of that if they did decide to bring him back in A3 then he has to comeback a lot better than before and I'd say his return would be a complete failure unless we get a Hugo Strange boss fight with him wearing his batsuit haha :hugo2:

I give it a 50/50. He didn't do much and wasn't trying to kill himself. He used it as a last resort.

Agreed! I love it. To be honest, that's all I've read which has featured Strange.... I'm tempted now to hunt down some of the things he's appeared in, he's such a great character. Didn't really like him in TAS too much though...

Additional Information: If you listen to those set of numbers on the Cryptographic Sequencer one of them says "I Will Return Batman" and the other one is "You Will Pay For What You Have Done To Me" and the last one is a set of number you need to decode(I believe every secret message is for a specific person the 3rd one obviously is Scarecrow but the other one could be someone we haven't seen in Arkhamverse yet!) and I believe that the first one is from Hugo Strange! "I Will Return Batman" :hugo2:

Possible Role: He could dress up as Batman and start doing the opposite of what Batman does and start wrecking havoc on the innocents and then everyone will think Batman is the one doing the Crimes! and Batman will somehow have to proof that it wasn't him by going after......... Batman?! :batman2: :hugo:

I'm not sure if we will see him in the new game...On the one hand, there are no chances for him to survive but on the other hand, in the comics he has the bizarre always come back in a misterious way. :hugo2:
