It has been confirmed that longtime Batman voice-actor, Kevin Conroy, will not be reprising the role for the upcoming video game, Batman: Arkham Origins. This report comes from NAG Magazine, who in an interview confirmed with the franchise’s new developer, Warner Bros. Montreal, that they wanted to bring in a younger voice-actor to portray Batman in his second year of crime-fighting. A huge contrast to the gruff, experienced Batman that Conroy brought to the table.

Conroy has played Batman in numerous animated series, films, and the two games, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, ever since 1992’s Batman: The Animated Series. He joins a growing club of voice-actors, including David Hayter and Michael Ironside, whom have been passed over in casting of their iconic roles.

Batman: Arkham Origins is being developed by Warner Bros. Games Montreal and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC. A PS Vita handheld version, Batman: Arkham Origins – Blackgate is being developed by Armature Studio. Both versions are scheduled to be released worldwide on October 25th, 2013.
