GameInformer’s got the scoop on the long-rumored prequel to Rocksteady’s hit Arkham Asylum series, Batman: Arkham Origins: “As the title suggests, the game takes place years before both of the previous Arkham titles when a young, unrefined Batman encounters many supervillains for the first time.” Notably, Rocksteady is not developing this entry, having handed the reins over to Warner Bros.
