Next Batman: Arkham game named?

The next Batman: Arkham game may have been revealed thanks to a domain name registration…

The website, Fusible, has reported that the next Batman: Arkham game’s title may have been revealed a little early, thanks to a recent domain name registration by Warner Bros.

The domain names believe to have been registered by WB include such titles as Batman: Arkham Universe, Batman: Arkham Rises and even Batman Arkham Begins. Other variations in the list mention Arkham Dark Knight, Origins, Stories and Legends, so there’s a definite blanket approach going on.

Is this a hint at the next game, though? To be honest, it’s not quite so certain. Many believe that the next Batman movies are to be some form of reboot, and will be based on the Arkham games when it comes to styling and theme. As WB already has Batman Begins, Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises, it’s easy enough to see that this scattergun registration is to protect the names for the possible movies, if said movies are, indeed, on the way.

The next Batman: Arkham game will likely be planned and under development already, and as such, the name will pretty much be nailed down, so such a blanket registration wouldn’t really be needed, unless RockSteady and WB are being very cautious.

What’s also important to note is that, although the registration company, MarkMonitor, hides the actual domain owners due to privacy policies, it has worked with Warner Bros. previously, and so it’s believed that there’s no doubt this is official WB activity.

Below is the full list of domain names.
