The voice of Batman in Batman: Arkham City and Arkham Asylum, Kevin Conroy, is involved in the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins, according to Conroy in a Q&A session at the Dallas Comic Con.

"Well, I can talk about it now," Conroy said when the panelist asked him if he could talk about what he has been working on. "We've been working for the past nine to ten months on the next Arkham. We all signed these contracts that we weren't allowed to talk about this, the studio likes to completely control the roll out of any product."

It wasn't made clear during the Q&A session in what capacity or role Conroy has in Origins.

Last month, NAG Magazine reported that Conroy will not be reprising his role in Origins because WB Games Montreal wanted a younger voice actor to fit with the vision of a younger Batman.

Conroy voiced Batman and Bruce Wayne in numerous animated series and video games, beginning with Batman: The Animated Series in 1992, and more recently Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Batman: Arkham Origins is scheduled to launch on Oct. 25 for Xbox 360, Windows PC, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.

Polygon contacted Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and will update this post accordingly.

Update: Batman News reports that Conroy took to Twitter for a clarification, saying — in a since-deleted tweet — that he will appear not in Batman: Arkham Origins, but in a "new Arkham game coming soon." Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive has not announced any Arkham games beyond Arkham Origins and the accompanying Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita title, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate.
