So going by the following tweet a Dutch games journalist is invited to an event at Rocksteady Studios.

@janmeijroos wanneer mag je erover praten?

Jan Meijroos ‏@janmeijroos 19m
@WildarvB over een klein maandje ...

Translation: I'm not allowed to talk about it for a month. I guess next month's GI cover is a given?

What's up with all those press events with month long embargoes? Don't they realize there's so little going on right now it would be the perfect time for a new game reveal to get everyone talking?

It's specifically a print media event, so thank god for the common sense of having a long embargo to put everyone on common ground streetdate-wise. Warner is among the few having this kind of common sense nowadays. We're having another print media event today with - like - a week embargo. what's the point, I don't know.

these events aren't always one day only events. they invite press from around the world and for people to prepare their articles and everything and release them in the same day, they need to do these embargoes.

It is partially sure, but Origins wasn't set in the Silver age nor did it feature any characters from the expanded universe. So I have to wonder if some of it didn't pertain to Rocksteadys game. We'll find out soon enough I suppose.

The thing about these new console drought periods is that a month from now.... will still be the perfect time.

Suicide Squad is happening, but it's probably WB Montreal.

Might feature some other DC characters but I think it'll still be an Arkham: whatever.

Conroy called it 'a new Arkham game' so it's pretty much confirmed, unless someone else was making that one for the last 2 years.

I don't either I want a Silver age Batman game, with the justice league in it in some form.
Maybe going the Brave and the bold route with him teaming up with odds and ends superheroes on side quests. What I don't want is the continued milking of the gritty Arkham franchise unless they can bring something new to the table.

Batman the animated series didn't continue forever it ramped into Justice League Unlimited. I want to see this happen with Rocksteady's games.

Oh hell yes! WBM delivered a fantastic game in Origins, but I do hope they are given enough time with SS to iron out all the bugs.

There is no embargo "announcement" - just a journo mentioning it in a tweet.

And these month long embargoes happen all the time. Most of the time we just don't notice them.
