Batman: Arkham Knight is almost here as the follow-up to Rocksteady Studios’ fantastic Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. However, while many call it the “Arkham trilogy,” there was yet another entry in the Batman: Arkham series with Batman: Arkham Origins in 2013. Coming from a different studio, some have wondered if it might not be fully in continuity with the other three games, which Rocksteady answered during a recent panel.
Rocksteady Studios co-founder and Batman: Arkham Knight game director Sefton Hill held a panel all about Arkham Knight at MCM London Comic Con where they were asked a number of questions. According to ToonZone, one of those questions was why everyone refers to Arkham Knight as the conclusion of the “Arkham trilogy,” when there are in fact four games. This caused some laughter in the audience when someone mentioned that it had to do with it being of lesser quality.
Hill instead said it was because the “Arkham trilogy” is referring to the three games done by Rocksteady, but that Batman: Arkham Origins is undoubtedly in continuity with Arkham Knight. In fact, the events of Origins will even be referenced during the game at some point, so we definitely will have to be on the lookout for that when Batman: Arkham Knight releases on June 23.
