Batman: Arkham Origins could feature in-game connection to DC2 Multiverse digital comic

DC Comics is producing an interactive comic that ties into Batman: Arkham Origins, and the game itself could connect back to the digital comic, said Ben Mattes of developer Warner Bros. Games Montreal to Polygon at E3.

Speaking during the first episode of our E3 live show Wireframe, Mattes, the game's senior producer, said that the game and the interactive comic will "definitely tie in narratively," and added that there's the possibility of a closer connection (scrub to 32:25 in the video above). DC announced the digital comic, which is the first piece of its new DC2 Multiverse initiative, earlier this month.

"There [are] talks that are under way right now to see whether or not there's an opportunity to do something a little bit deeper than that," said Mattes, although he wouldn't promise anything.

"It's definitely on the radar, to see if we can put some interesting hooks in there, but we'll see if we can get it done in time, really."

Batman: Arkham Origins is set for release Oct. 25 worldwide on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Windows PC and Wii U.
