Time Warner’s investor call took place today with some interesting new news. CFO and chief administrative office John K. Martin confirmed the existence of a new Batman game during the call, stating:

And we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise. So all in all, we expect Warners to post another very strong year in 2013. And with a little luck, the year should be as good or maybe even a little bit better than 2012.

Batman: Arkham City was originally a 2011 title for consoles and PC, but it saw a special edition release on the Wii U in 2012. Given that Time Warner ported the game to Wii U as a launch title, it’s possible that we’ll see the new title scheduled to debut this year as a simultaneous release with PC and other consoles.

It’s interesting to note that Time Warner has recently snatched up several domains relating to Batman and the word ‘universe’, so Arkham City Universe could be the focus of the next title. If you’re interested in seeing the complete transcript of the investor call, you can check it out here.

  • Damn…  I guess I should Finish Arkham City

    • Gearchin

       good game over all, and the Wii u version is very good, shame it doesnt get the two thumbs up it deserves(on wii u).

      •  I bought it on my 360 because I liked Arkham Asylum so much and actually thought about getting it on the Wii U since I barely played it yet due to this thing called grown up responsibility in the way.   I need to take a vacation just so I can finish some of these games

        • Petri

          If I were to take a vacation just to finish video games… My wife would most probably murder me.

  • Nintendude

    I just told my friend about this. He flipped out.

  • MrValtor

    … and it won’t probably come to wii u

    • youre right. they always screw nintendo, and go to microsoft and sony.

    • DragonSilths

      Of course it will. Arkham City did. Then again this isnt Rocksteady…so I have a feeling the game will suck, if so then I dont want trash on the Wii U.

      • TheBoldman67

        Actually, it is RockSteady, WB just publishes it.

    • Metal_Man_v2

      Why do you say that? Didn’t the last one come to the Wii U?

    • Desiderio Lazaro

      could care less…what a generic, hyped, shallow game this is…bring us GTA, Metal Gear and all those Nintendo goodies and I´m happy

  • Noteak

    Good I just got the Arkham city

  • Genesect4ssb4


  • Nintedward

    Arkhum city is one of the best western if not THE best western game I’ve ever played.  Wait , Metroid prime is developed by Nintendo owned , texas based Retro. 

    But yeh…. Arkhum City is pretty much a masterpiece.

    • DragonSilths

      Arkham City Western??? Rocksteady is a British Developer…

      • Nintedward

        Yeah and Britain is a western country lol. America isn’t the only Western civilization you know. Western Europe and America  is what is meant by ”Western” . Eastern is Asia etc… 

        • DragonSilths

          I dont consider Britian a western Country…North America and South America are western.

          • Adam Porter

            well i don’t consider you smart enough to make a statement like that you idiot

          • Turquel Baker

            ignorance is Bliss. Britain IS Western.

          • Please guys open your history books. You might learn more than just why European countries and historic colonies of Europe  including (Australia/New Zealand in the east geographically) are called Western countries.

        • DragonSilths

          Its not Western or Eastern its Middle.

          • Edgarska

            There’s no such thing as Middle Countries.

            Originally, Western means Europe, and any civilization that originated or has any association with Europe, like America.

          • Turquel Baker

            middle? lol no its western. cut and dry

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It’s western. Read a map or globe. If you’re basically the only one who doesn’t seem so. 

        • Arthur Jarret

          There were cowboys in europe?

  • skid5jack

    Guess what. It won’t be coming to Wii U

    • then i guess it will never come out cause it doesn’t get better than the wii U. now  get off my website.

  • Bananapwnz

    please oh pleeeeeese be on wii u!

  • Srpg2ishere

    But I didn’t get to play the first two. Lol oh well I guess.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Then get to it you lazy bastard. Nah jk. I’d say pick them both up. Got mine via Steam.

  • uPadWatcher

    If WB Games Montreal were to develop a new Batman Arkham title to the Wii U, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

  • Mark Thom

    I am shore wiiu would not get it so sad

    • Nick Kulakovskiy


  • Nintengoth

    Meh it wont come to the Wii U coz devs are lazy and want easy consoles to work for like the ps360, the Wii U is loosing way to many games 🙁 im hoping at E3this year Ninty busts out at least 6 new awesome titles!

    • RyuNoHadouken
