The lights are on
With this year's upcoming release of Batman: Arkham Origins, the new team at Warner Bros. Games Montreal is winding back the clock on the Arkham series and investigating Batman's early years in Gotham. Guided by Geoff Johns and the rest of DC Comics, the new game is being written by Dooma Wendschuch and Corey May of Sekretagent Productions, the team behind games such as Assassin's Creed and the earlier Army of Two entries.
Watch the video below to hear creative director Eric Holmes and narrative director/writer Dooma Wendschuch talk about creating a less polished Batman, his relationship with both Alfred and Penguin, the Christmas setting, and how they were inspired by classic comic books such as Batman: Year One.

This story sounds even better than the ones in Arkham Asylum and City. Not that they weren't good, I loved both of them, but I still think these guys are doing better.
And the beating around the bush continues......
I agree with Master Chief. But we'll just have to wait and see.
Eight of the world's deadliest assassins come to Gotham for one night to kill the Bat. They're probably going to try and take him out one at a time. I'm quaking in my batsuit.
batman year one the movie sucked a f***
HOLY CRAP, CORY MAY IS ON THIS, that guy is awesome, he's the one who weaves all the history through the story in AC.
I'm a bit skeptical about May and Wendschuch working on this. Sure Assassin's Creed is fine and dandy but they're treading on sacred ground now and those past achievements are not enough to settle my nerves.
Can we have some gameplay now?....Please?...No? Fine....
bye bats, you had a good run.
I hope they keep it consistent. Like the Grapnel Boost. The one on Arkham City was barely a prototype.
Wasn't the biggest fan of Year One, but I'm still looking forward to this.
Can't wait to see gameplay.
So sick of origin stories for the Bat. I liked Arkham 1 & 2, but I think I will be skipping this one.
