Fans of the Batman series of games will be interested to know that its next chapter will be arriving on October 25, 2013. Batman: Arkham Origins will be the latest game to hit shelves and is set before the Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Asylum titles.

WB Games Montreal is the developer for the new title and said that Batman: Arkham Origins takes place in the initial years of the super-hero’s journey as a crime fighter. The title is set at a time when Gotham City was devoid of major criminals and Batman was just finding his feet in his crime fighting career.

Rocksteady Studios was the company behind the earlier Batman titles, but they gave way to WB Games Montreal for Arkham Origins. The WB Interactive President Martin Tremblay said that his company has a great team of talented individuals, who will take Rocksteady’s gameplay to the next level and will deliver a game that is immersive and deep.
