Rumors have popped up that point towards the impending release of two remasters in the relatively recently started Batman: Arkham series.
According to IGN Italy‘s “reliable sources,” Warner Bros. Interactive is working on Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City remasters for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. They don’t say much else in the quick article, so take that “reliable sources” for what it is.
This is, pure and simple, a rumor. However, given exactly how many remasters we’ve seen over the last year or so, it’s not entirely unexpected. We’ve seen Grand Theft Auto V, Sleeping Dogs, The Last of Us, Tomb Raider and a whole lot more. These remasters, in my opinion, are getting a bit out of hand.
I digress. The rumors make no mention of Batman: Arkham Origins, though that’s not entirely surprising. While not a bad game, Origins didn’t quite reach the same level of quality found in Asylum or City. It was also made by a completely separate developer.
We’ll have more on this potential remaster as it comes. That includes official confirmation or denial if and when we get either.
