Although developer Rocksteady isn’t quite yet ready to reveal the next installment in the Batman: Arkham franchise (some rumors mention that it might be a Court of Owls game) that they are said to be working on, fans of the series will be happy to hear that this September, Batman: Arkham Collection will be coming to consoles. Unfortunately, it’s not what we’ve all been waiting for from Rocksteady, but this will surely whet our appetites until the next Arkham game is announced.
The reveal of the Arkham Collection comes as an accident—it was leaked by Amazon U.K. in a listing that probably wasn’t supposed to be posted just yet. Included images of the game’s box art confirmed that the game will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which was later confirmed by Rocksteady themselves.
While a similar collection was released back in 2016 titled Batman: Return to Arkham, it only included the first two titles in the series (Arkham Asylum and Arkham City). Batman: Arkham Collection will still include both of those remasters, along with the addition of Batman: Arkham Knight, as well as the game’s post-launch DLC. The forthcoming compendium of Batman: Arkham games notably excludes Batman: Arkham Origins (which was not developed by Rocksteady), but the whole package still provides a definitive version of the Arkham series.
Also included in the Batman: Arkham Collection Amazon U.K. listing was the inclusion of a new skin for Arkham Knight—the Batman Earth-2 skin (which will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive). The collection will be housed in a beautiful steelbook case and will cost around $60. (Note: This game is only listed in Europe as of right now, but we can assume that it will also see a U.S. release).
Batman: Arkham Collection is slated to release this September for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
