Warner Bros. have announced that Batman: Arkham Knight is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC later this year, and will be the last in the Arkham series. The Batman franchise will continue of course, but it does save us from the prospect of an Arkham Revelations or Arkham Legacy.
Set within a larger Gotham City, Batman will be able to get behind the wheel of the Batmobile for the first time, and will face a familiar line-up of villains in the shape of the Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn,
Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment said these things. “Batman: Arkham Knight is the pinnacle game of our hugely successful franchise, and we are giving players the most expansive, impressive title in the series. The Rocksteady Studios team is continuing to focus on the excellent gameplay for which they are known while delivering a thrilling new experience for gamers and Batman fans.”
Sefton Hill, Game Director at Rocksteady Studios said this. “We’re excited to be developing the game for next-gen platforms, which has allowed us to bring to life the design elements that we envisioned from the beginning such as the Batmobile and how it augments Batman’s abilities, to the fully detailed and realized Gotham City.”

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
