Cover reveal/digital issue launch tomorrow. I won't spoil the cover, but I can answer the next biggest question, yes Game Infarcer is in

Hint: It's almost assuredly Batman.

Update:

We reported on the domain names that were registered by WB over a year ago, but we’re seeing threads from that story start to re-emerge. In December, there was a rumour that the next Arkham game would be called Arkham Knight, but we haven’t had any evidence of such until now. Batman: Arkham Knight is now active, but restricted. Check it our here: http://www.batmanarkhamknight.com/

If it's PS4/Xbone Batman from Rocksteady then hype!

Had an absolute blast with Arkham City.

If its Batman, I hope the core formula of the game has changed a little. Of course introduction of other JLA members is a must.

I'm kind of expecting it to be a UE3 cross-gen game that looks almost exactly like the last games with some minor improvements.

It would be nice to be genuinely surprised by a cover every one and a while but that seems to be increasingly difficult with nobody in the industry capable of keeping their mouths shut.

All that aside, I am looking forward to Rocksteady's next Batman and getting information on it.

Why do we all think it's Batman? I'm missing something.

Assuming it is... here's hoping we finally get an open-world Batman game complete with Batmobile, Batcave, and random crimes. I would prefer no cross-gen but that seems unlikely.

Batman: Arkham Nightmare

Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are both in the game, fully. Takes place after Arkham City, Arkham Asylum is reopened, Arkham city is run down and abandoned. Hush rounds up a bunch of villains, start in a rebuilt Arkham Asylum, eventually will go to a decrepit Arkham City.

Will be released on Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

They have a contact until 2014, and there's far too much money to miss out on not going cross gen.

I hope not, I want a PS4/Xone only focused Batman. Plus, isn't the reason Rocksteady didn't make Origins is because they were focused on the next gen version?

Balogna. The time for cross gen is already fading. Boy would I be disappointed if this were true though.

If it's not Batman, I would think it's the new Assassin's Creed game. Hopefully this time with assassins.

Rocksteady showed their new game to the press not long ago. It fits.

Rocksteady was just busy making a new game. There's far too much money to loose by going current gen only.

Specifically, lets hope those random crimes are procedurally generated. I like how Shadows of Mordor is doing this with their nemesis system. I'd love to get some randomization in my batman as well.

With a lot of UE3 devs you can see some UE4 mentions either in their job postings or their staff linkedin accounts skills section. Rocksteady I can't find evidence of however.

Either Rocksteady is very sneaky or they're still using UE3, presumably for cross-gen.

We know that Rocksteady will be announcing their new game very soon, so the timing fits, plus GI gave cover stories to all three previous Arkham games.
