Warner Bros. is teasing an imminent announcement regarding their Batman: Arkham franchise, which is set to revealed on New Year’s Eve. Though exactly what type of announcement this is hasn’t been outlined. Their post on Facebook only states that it is a “special announcement” that will be made on the 31st of December.
It also reads, “Visit this page on December 31st for a special announcement…more details to come next week.” There are two specific scenarios as to what this announcement can be. For one, and this is a long shot, is that this is the upcoming reveal for Rocksteady’s next Arkham game-a studio that hasn’t developed a game since 2011’s Arkham City.
The reason why this is unlikely is that such an immense announcement wouldn’t be made on the eve of New Years. The second, and more realistic outcome, would be the story DLC that Warner has stated will arrive in early 2014. This would fit well with Arkham Origins Christmas themed setting and this new DLC could even be based on New Years day.
