Rocksteady working on Batman prequel - report

New game said to draw inspiration from 1950s comics and feature other heroes such as Superman

Rocksteady's third Batman title will be a prequel set in the Silver Age, reports have suggested.

According to Variety the "highly stylized" prequel will draw inspiration from DC's 1950s era comics and feature other heroes such as Superman. The game supposedly focuses on Batman's first meeting with Joker, around the time the Justice League is first founded..

The publication speculates a 2014 release date at the earliest, noting that Warner is likely to focus on NetherRealm's all-star fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us first.


Neither Warner nor Rocksteady have offered any concrete news about future of the critically acclaimed series, beyond the release of Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition for the Wii U.
