You might have already heard the early rumors—a GameStop employee reported receiving materials for a new Batman game, which led to other theories and claims that Rocksteady is about to announce a new game. Now, something even more interesting has entered the mix of speculation.
The official Facebook page for Batman: Hush posted an image of Hush as he appears in Arkham City, along with the message, “Remember a little appearance by a certain somebody in Arkham City? Well things may be about to get more interesting next month.”
The Hush story arc is a popular one among Batman fans, featuring a surgeon named Thomas Elliot who ends up grafting a face identical to that of Bruce Wayne over his own face. He played a small role in Arkham City, and provided a loose end that could easily become Rocksteady’s next sequel.
Indeed, Warner Brothers has held the domain names BatmanHush.com, BatmanHushGame.com, and BatmanImposters.com, among others, since April 2011.
We’ve also gotten to see an image (courtesy of HardcoreGamer) of a Batman logo that many people believe will be used for this rumored game. It looks pretty neat, although it doesn’t give us any more details.
At this point, all we can say for sure is that there is a lot of Batman talk in the air, perhaps too much for the rumors to be unfounded. We wouldn’t be at all surprised if Rocksteady really is working on a new Batman game, and Hush does seem like a logical choice, as well as a very cool direction for the story to take. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we learn more.
