According to Twitter user Sabi (@New_WabiSabi), the next title will be called Batman: Arkham Legacy. While such rumors should usually be taken with a grain a salt, Sabi has a history of accurate leaks. The information they revealed about Nintendo’s E3 announcements before the event led to them being threatened with legal action by the Japanese firm. Additionally, Sabi also leaked info on Microsoft and Bethesda's E3 media briefing, including the surprise appearance of Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk 2077 and details on next-gen console Project Scarlett.

In addition to the name, Sabi revealed that players would be able to control some or all of the Batman family—which is something that was rumored in the past. We’ve also heard that the game will revolve around the criminal organization called the Court of Owls.

As noted by PC Gamer, WB Games Montreal released a series of teasers last month that suggested an official reveal of the new Batman game would take place at Sony's September State of Play, but that wasn’t the case.

Exactly when Batman: Arkham Legacy launches is unclear. Hopefully, it won’t suffer the same problems on the PC as the last game—Arkham Knight—which had so many bugs and issues that WB Games suspended sales of the PC version for several months.

Is it going to have PhysX and have paper shuffling around the ground & all other kinds of fake eye candy..? Or is going to be a real game, not tied/bought by another franchise, to market a gimmick..?

Batman games are only meant to be played with certain video cards. That is all anyone learned from the last batman attempts. Half effort.

The first three arkham games were quite good games, regardless of GPU. Stop living in marketing hype.

I don't play anti-social games... specially ones with marketing fluff all over them. Nvidia is full of self-mast3rbation.

What is an anti-social game? Is that a game that isn't based on social media or a MMO? If so, man are you mising out.

If you refuse to paly games with nvidia endorsement, then you are still missing out on some great games, just as someone who refuses to play AMD sponsored titles would be missing out. Arkham city, asylum, and origins are all fantastic action games that many other third person action-adventures have tried to copy gameplay wise.
