Rocksteady’s Batman sequel named, out next fall

Goodbye tentative Arhkam Asylum 2, welcome Arkham City; WBIE and Rocksteady have today named their Batty sequel, and Batman: Arkham City is it.

As the name implies, the game takes place in Arkham City, “the new maximum security ‘home’ for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds,” the official word warns.

Inhabiting said home are an “all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains” from the Batman universe, one of whom — as GI’s September cover would suggest — is Cat Woman.

“A vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features” are promised as well, but details are severely lacking for now.

There is a release window though: next fall for all PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
