Ever since the announcement of Batman: Arkham Knight, I’ve always maintained that both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City should be re-mastered once Rocksteady’s explosive finale is released.
Not only would it help get newcomers to experience two modern classics, it would also add longevity to the ongoing ‘Batman in video games hype train”, giving fans even more reason to keep the caped crusader in their console.
The rumours originate from IGN Italy, where they seem to have gained information about the re-masters being made available in time for the end of 2015. Once again, these reports are unsubstantiated, regardless of which source they come from.
When we reached out to Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment regarding the rumours, we unfortunately got the usual “No comment”.
Frankly, this news doesn’t surprise me ONE BIT. I don’t expect to hear any official announcement regarding the remasters until after Arkham Knight’s release on June 23rd.
It’d be a bit silly to put focus on older titles before their explosive finale has hit retailers.
