Hobbit game, LEGO Batman 2 on for 2012

Warner Bros. Interactive are planning a trip to the Shire, as the company has announced a Hobbit game for next year.

The game is expected to launch in conjunction with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the long-awaited Lord of the Rings prequel due out in cinemas next December. Other details are scarce but we do know of some other WB projects headed our way.

A second LEGO Batman game is on the cards and a new DC superhero game starring an unannounced hero. A variety of social games are being developed by the publisher’s Montreal studio, too.

Plenty of goodness out of these guys, then. But, of course, we’re most excited for this week’s release of Batman: Arkham City.
