So far, every Batman game under RockSteady's wing has been Arkham something; Arkham Origins, Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, etc, and it's all led back to Batman. However, some new information reveals that despite our previous thoughts, the Arkham Knight isn't Batman at all.
In fact, the Arkham Knight will be the main villain in the upcoming Batman game, and if you're a fan of the Arkham series, you'll agree with me when I say that this sounds absolutely exciting.
However, the odd thing is, this will be the first time that RockSteady Studios change up the world of Batman so much that they introduce a completely new character unseen in the world of Batman before.
This is obviously a big move for the franchise in general, especially considering that it's now many decades old, but if anyone were to bring a new villain to the world of Batman, I entrust RockSteady to do a pretty job at it.
It seems the new villain has taken inspiration from Batman himself, and early images show the Arkham Knight wearing some sort of futuristic bat suit. I'm sure Batman won't be pleased that someone else there is impersonating him, and I'm sure it will create for some very interesting moments in the upcoming Batman Arkham game.
As it stands, Batman Arkham Knight is set for release on October 14th, for the Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4, we'll probably see a lot more about the new villain, and the various other new mechanics of the new game leading up to it's release.
