(WXYZ) - The video game centered publication Game Informer magazine is reporting that a prequel to the hugely popular Batman: Arkham games will be released later this year.
Called Batman: Arkham Origins, the game will reportedly be released October 25, 2013 for the Wii U, Playstation 3, XBox 360 and PC.
However, Game Informer reports that the game is being developed by Warner Bros. Games Montreal and not Rocksteady Studios, the gaming company that created both 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum and 2011's Batman: Arkham City.
Both games were critical and financial successes.
