WB announces ‘Arkham Asylum’ sequel

Christmas has come early for Batman fans.  Warner Bros. Interactive announced late Saturday that a sequel to the critically-acclaimed “Batman: Arkham Asylum” is already under development by Rocksteady Studios.

No release date was given, but I’ll go out on a limb and say this one will slip into 2011.

“Getting the opportunity to create ‘Batman: Arkham Asylum’ and seeing its success has been a dream come true for the team,” said Sefton Hill, Game Director at Rocksteady Studios, in a statement released Saturday. “We are honored to create the next chapter in this compelling story and promise to deliver another game worthy of the Dark Knight.”For more information on the game and to sign up to receive updates, visit
