Kevin Conroy tweeted this half an hour ago -
Kevin Conroy ‏@realkevinconroy29m

Confusion in Dallas! I am in new ARKHAM GAME coming soon, NOT ARKHAM ORIGINS coming this fall.

It was then removed from Twitter...

my guess... Origins is coming out made by WB this year, to tide us over until the proper sequel to Arkham City hits next year... made by Rocksteady.

There were rumors that the next Arkham game would feature the Justice League and be called Arham World or Arkham Universe. It makes sense that Rocksteady would be working on a new kind of mechanic to accommodate new gameplay while a WB third party continued with the franchise as it was before.

Aww hell no, they need to make a sequel to injustice first

That's great news. Reserving judgement on Arkham Origins, but I'd much rather continue the story than backtrack with a different studio.

If Conroy, Dini, and Rocksteady are involved, I'm in.

I wouldn't mind the Justice League making an appearance, but I'd rather focus on the Batman family. Not against a full-on Justice League game, though.

I hope the JL members do not play major part in the game, maybe each member teams up with Batman for a specific fight but not more than that. This is a Batman game not JL.

The DS/Conroy article was previously updated. I'll hold on the new game news until we get more info, but definitely cool!

@k4tzm4n: WB/DC will probably try to keep it a secret for now as it will affect Arkham Origins' sales, so getting any more info is unlikely.

Hate to rain on peoples parade, but that account is probably a fake. Someone has been impersonating Kevin Conroy before. Had a lot of people fooled. And this new account pops up just a few days after his old one is suspended.

Sounds too fishy to me. I'd take what this guy says with a grain of salt.

Ah, crap. Thanks for the heads-up. I'd rather be disappointed than be excited about some douchebag's lies.

It's difficult to know what's real and not these days. It could be the real him, but I don't know...it seems too fishy to me.

@the_lobster_: But a PR rep from DC's Animated branch confirmed that it was Conroy. https://twitter.com/SuperPRGuy/status/336514753360961536

Plus the article states the twitter name was @TheKevinConroy. While the twitter account up there is @RealKevinConroy.

The old account had Mark Hamill, Paul Dini, and Tara Strong following him, and various other people who thought he was the real deal. This new account may be him....but still......it's best to take this kind of information with a grain of salt and not get excited. Until it's confirmed by a reliable source like comicvine, IGN, or whatever....it's not true.

@the_lobster_: Alright, I guess the info was legit... I guess. I don't know, I'm personally going to try to be optimistic about this.

This isn't the first time Conroy has leaked info about an upcoming project, though. Remember Flashpoint?

They will move on when sales stop...people like them so they make them. Halo, God of War, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat ... will be made till they can't get more $$$.

My issue is that they could leverage this popularity to help launch other titles, but still keep making the titles that currently sell well (aka expansion), but don't.

#31 Edited by PunyParker (8815 posts) - - Show Bio

They need to make a AC sequel!

Individual Batman game!....the aftermath of Joker's death!...Red hood,there IS potential!

I liked the prequel idea of Origins,from the start.Conroy said "another Arkham game..." so i believe it's all about Bats...

- Hopefully Richard, Tim, or Jason will be playable in the sequel as god knows that i'll only play as Bruce for so long.

Awww yusss! Next-Gen Arkham City sequel! Now that's what I'm talking about Rocksteady! Stay ahead of the curve and keep it revolutionary!

I wonder if Rocksteady will use the map that WB is making for Arkham Origins. That would be cool, all they need to do is just make it more rundown and just reuse the Arkham City map.

Love the Arkham games and want to keep seeing more, but I wish Rocksteady did games for characters like WW Flash, Green Arrow. I didn't include Supes because he's had a long line of stupid games and DC should try to start a video game franchise with some one else.

I would have to imagine that any game that has not yet been announced will be coming to the next generation of consoles. While that might affect Arkham Origins sales, it really shouldn't, because people who can afford to be early adopters of the new consoles probably aren't financially worried about buying two completely different games made by completely different studios.

#43 Edited by Breadspread (774 posts) - - Show Bio

I suspected as much. They set up too many story lines with arkham city not to follow up on them. Rocksteady is probably hard at work on a new engine for the next gen while WB Montreal pumps out a prequel on current gen systems, which is a great idea. It will expand the Arkham game universe. I can not wait to play as a young,less experienced, and more agressive Batman.

Keep in mind Conroy was NOT in Arkham Origins, and this press conference was AFTER Arkham City. How can people still deny it? He specifically states it in person.
