Batman Arkham Origins is reportedly in development at Rocksteady Studios for current and next gen consoles.
The rumour originates from French site Gameblog, which says it was tipped off about the game by unnamed industry sources.
As has previously been rumoured, the report claims the title will be a prequel inspired by the Silver Age of comics and featuring appearances from a number of Justice League members such as Superman and Green Lantern.
Gameblog's sources also suggest Batman Arkham Origins will be revealed at E3 and released in the third quarter of 2013.
While it hasn't been officially announced, the next entry in the Batman: Arkham series will be released this year, Time Warner quietly revealed in an earnings call last month.
