Warner Bros. Interactive has announced that the latest game in the Arkham series, "Batman: Arkham Origins," will not be coming to next gen consoles. The company sent out an official tweet on Monday confirming the rumors: "Arkham Origins will only be available on the announced platforms and is not coming to PS4 or Xbox One." Fans have mixed opinions since some plan to buy the next gen consoles that are due out this holiday season and are not backwards compatible.
In an expanded Gotham City, "Arkham Origins" introduces an all new prequel storyline that takes place before the events of "Batman: Arkham Asylum" and "Batman: Arkham City". The title involves eight of the world's deadliest assassin who have come to Gotham City on Christmas to find Batman. Players will take on the role as a younger, more refined Batman as they watch him become the Dark Knight. Fans can also compete in a brand new multiplayer mode called Invisible Predator and have the choice to play as either a member of the Joker's or Bane's gang or as Batman and Robin (3 vs. 3 vs. 2).
"Arkham Origins" will be released on October 25 for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Windows PC, and WiiU. A special handheld title, "Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate", is going to be available on the same day for the Playstation Vita and Nintendo 3DS. Fans can pre-order the game on the website.
