During their panel at San Diego Comic-Con today, Warner Bros. Montreal showed off some new content and revealed some tidbits related to their upcoming blockbuster, Batman: Arkham Origins. The story of the game will delve into the dark knight’s second year on the job, and it will thus preclude them from including Robin. The boy wonder was last seen in a minor supporting role in 2011’s Batman: Arkham City. The developers were more ambiguous in regards to Batgirl’s potential involvement in the game (a move that would make little sense since Dick Grayson’s Robin pre-dates Batgirl by quite some time).
Batman: Arkham Origins is being developed by Warner Bros. Montreal and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC on October 25th, 2013. A Vita version of the game,Batman: Arkham Origins – Blackgate, is also in development by Armature Studio and will be released on the same day. You can see today’s tweet below:
There’s no Robin at this point in the timeline. This is year 2 of his career. As for Batgirl, you’re gonna have to see the game. #ArkhamSDCC
