Warner confirms new Batman video game coming in 2013

Warner Bros. Interactive will publish another entry into the Batman Arkham video game series this year, parent company Time Warner announced during the company's recent financial report.

During an investor call last week, chief financial and administrative officer John K. Martin stated that the company is expecting to "post another very strong year in 2013," and briefly mentioned that a new Batman video game is part of the plan.

"We also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise," he said.

Last summer, Variety reported that the next Batman title to follow 2011's critically acclaimed Arkham City would be a prequel based on the 1950s DC comics. The title would follow the Silver Age storyline in which Batman partners up with Superman and company to form the Justice League. At the time, Warner Bros. stated the game would likely be released after 2014.

One month later, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City script writer Paul Dini tweeted that he was not working on the next Batman title.

Polygon has reached out to Arkham series developer Rocksteady and Warner Bros. for more information, and will update this story with more details as we have them.
