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.

the premise sounds great and I have confidence that they can pull it off, but like others Im kinda nervous not havin Dini or another vet handlin the story. Im not writin it off Im just voicin sum concerns!
Sounding promising still, thankfully.
I really love the design of this next entry. The story should mend well with it.
Every time an ARKHAM game comes out I complain about something, like a *** troll. Nothing to say now, i don wanna read myself later and feel like a ***. I'm very excited, for now, it all makes sense, the story, the characters. I hope I dont find myself screaming: ''Why arkham orgingins, you supposed to be the chosen one''!!!, that SW reference was for free..you are welcome.
I hope it turns out great! I love the first 2 games. They were mighty awesome!
Looking forward to their take on what the super villians look like as their younger selves. Joker? Wonder if he makes an appearance. Can't imagine he doesn't.
I'm still excited for this game, but I'm disappointed that it's a younger Batman. Looks like no Dick Grayson or Tim Drake :(
This is terrible news. Paul Dini was a large part of why Rocksteady's Batman games were so great, he managed to really make it feel like a Batman story. These guys are a bad fit for Gotham. The AC series storyline has been going downhill for some time now and Army of Two has always been second-rate.
It seems as though Warner Bros. is content to toss out a mediocre game and hope that it succeeds solely on the goodwill left behind from Rocksteady's efforts. Boo.
This game sounds like it should be awesome and just as good as the other two. I cannot wait to play it.
The story sounds interesting, but I hope they leave more to the game besides the story-mode. I was sad in Arkham City when I couldn't do much besides 3 or 4 sidemissions.
