"Batman: Arkham Knight" has been official announced Tuesday by Warner Bros., with original series developer Rocksteady returning for what's being billed as the "final installment."

Rocksteady is back for the final installment of the Arkham series.

The April cover Game Informer confirmed the game's existence today, but details were leaked earlier by GAME.co.uk. As stated by Game Informer, "Arkham Knight" takes place after 2011's "Arkham City" and described as the final Arkham game that "may just end the Dark Knight's journey." Rocksteady is said to be raising the stakes even higher for "Arkham Knight" by allowing players to drive the Batmobile for the very first time, complementing Batman's gliding and grappling abilities, as he travels across Gotham City.

Both GAME and Game Informer confirm the return of Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face, Harley Quinn in the new "Batman" title, however, the product listing makes it sound like Scarecrow is the new mastermind in the latest plot. Unsurprisingly, the game's product listing also suggest there will be a DLC pre-order bonus involving Harley Quinn. "Arkham Knight" is likely the "Batman" game Kevin Conroy was referring to, when he talked last year about reprising his role as the Dark Knight.

Game Informer has the debut trailer for "Batman: Arkham Knight" available to view. The game will only be released this year on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Given news of WB cutting off DLC support for the Wii U version of "Arkham Origins," no "Arkham Knight" for Wii U was expected, but still disappointing for Nintendo fans.
