    Batman: Arkham City is the name of Rocksteady Studios' follow-up to Batman: Arkham Asylum, according to Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment.

    Weeks ago, WBIE registered fifteen unique Batman-related URLs, fueling speculation that one of them was the official name of Batman: Arkham Asylum's sequel. One of the domains was indeed the name of the new Batman title. It was the second one down in a list  that included contenders such as "Ashes of Gotham, "Batman Grand Delusion," and "People for Gotham." 
     

    No Caption Provided

    In a press release this afternoon, WBIE expanded upon our knowledge of the next title, confirming that it is set within Gotham City's walled district, Arkham City, a maximum-security cage for Gotham's various evildoers and maniacs. The game will also feature a new narrative, a "vast range of new and enhanced" features, and a tweaked version of the X-ray vision mode that we all abused in the original.  In contrast, the above Game Informer cover tells us to prepare for some Catwoman action, and maybe even a bit of blood.

    == TEASER ==Placing the game within another urban construct focuses the scope yet again, and as a result, should keep the title's mechanics in line with its predecessor. As Batman, you'll presumably be a predator, a tactical machine that attacks--not hides--in the gloom. If you care to check out the critically acclaimed original, you'll know why that concept is such a big deal. In a word, it was empowering.

    No other details were given other than we can expect to see the game on the Xbox 360, PC, and PS3 at some point Fall 2011.

    This is my favourite cover of the two that have been shown. Totally would have a wall paper version.

    Arkham Avenue would have been better than the stupid name they're calling it. They obviously should have just called it Gotham City but I think those suits in marketing are worrying that people aren't going to recognise it just because Arkham isn't the title.

    That's kinda silly, they move the story into Gotham, except it's a walled off prison section.
     
    It'll be a new place, but it's almost like it's just a different island. Who knows!
     
    Still super jizzed about the game, can't wait!

    I like the "whiteness" of the cover.  I think bringing some of that color scheme, the  white/red, into the game could be cool.  Kinda...crappy name.

    Glad to see they're not rushing it out. I was really worried when it was first announced that it'd be coming out this year and be an exact clone of the original.

    I think they are trying to make it out as if the inmates of Arkham have taken over a portion of Gotham city and renamed it.

    It's a head-scratcher for sure. I doubt "Arkham City" is part of the established canon. I guess we'll see some pretty shifty retconning.

    Not convinced about including the Arkham tag.  This must be a pure marketing decision to keep some form of connection to the original to help the uneducated casual mass out there.
