The ending to “Batman: Arkham Knight” has been linked to “Batman: Arkham Asylum” and “Batman: Arkham City.” According to a report from Total Xbox on April 14, Dax Ginn teased that the logo designs should give fans a general hint at what to expect from the conclusion of the trilogy. All three games use the Batarang symbol as part of the insignias.

In “Batman: Arkham Asylum,” the brand marketing producer at Rocksteady Studios described the colors used as something that is blue and calm. For “Batman: Arkham City,” the logo is more neutral. The same symbol can be seen burning in the upcoming “Batman: Arkham Knight,” hinting that the sequel is going to provide a fiery ending for the story. Furthermore, it is also connected to the Batmobile, which is a new feature for the open-world action-adventure video game series. You can find the statement made by Dax Ginn from the Locked on Games interview below:

Here's the thinking: so, Batman: Arkham Asylum, when you think about the image on the front of the box, it's very blue, very cool, very calm. Batman: Arkham City was black and white, purely neutral. So we've got this spectrum that we've built up between the three games where Arkham Knight is all about heat. It's all about this epic, conclusive, explosive end to the trilogy. So, the colour spectrum from blue through to neutral through to red hot, that was really the driving philosophy behind the design of the logo. There's also the carbon fibre to kinda connect to the Batmobile.

The aforesaid Batmobile is used to quickly move around in Gotham City, a new location that is around five times as large as Arkham City. Along with providing fast ground transportation, the car can also launch Batman higher into the air. Implementing the Batmobile proved to be too straining for the PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360, however, as “Batman: Arkham Knight” won’t be coming out for the current-generation consoles. You can find a screen showcasing the forthcoming software product from the official Twitter page with the photo included on top of this article.

The sequel is the third and last game of the series being developed by Rocksteady Studios. The award-winning studio should be moving onto a new franchise, which may end up being related to the “Superman” franchise. However, Warner Bros. Interactive Studios still have the rights for the “Batman” games after “Batman: Arkham Knight” and could enlist the help from another development team to continue the popular franchise.
