Batman: Arkham City Sequel News

     It's about time we got some substantial evidence on the new Arkham game.  Granted they did work on plenty of DLC and a port to the Nintendo Wii, but FINALLY something of note.
     Well, this is the first sort of real "NEWS" that we've gotten received about the future of the Batman Arkham games.  With a simple clue as to the next installment- Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady games may have released the next in the Arkham Asylum and Arkham City series' title. 

     They have recently registered 15 domain names-
  • arkhamuniverse.com (Arkham Universe)
  • batmanarkahmuniverse.com (Batman Arkham Universe)
  • batmanarkhamarises.com (Batman Arkham Arises)
  • batmanarkhambegins.com (Batman Arkham Begins)
  • batmanarkhamdarkknight.com (Batman Arkham Dark Knight)
  • batmanarkhamknight.com (Batman Arkham Knight)
  • batmanarkhamlegend.com (Batman Arkham Legend)
  • batmanarkhamlegends.com (Batman Arkham Legends)
  • batmanarkhamnight.com (Batman Arkham Night)
  • batmanarkhamorigins.com (Batman Arkham Origins)
  • batmanarkhamstories.com (Batman Arkham Stories)
  • darkknightarkham.com (Dark Knight Arkham)
  • dcarkhamuniverse.com (DC Arkham Universe)
  • dcarkhamverse.com (DC Arkhamverse)
  • thearkhamuniverse.com (The Arkham Universe)

      If I recall correctly, this happened about a year and a half before Arkham City was released.  They registered a slew of domains and one of them was the one they went with.

     I am quite curious as to what direction they'll go with.  There have been plenty of rumors about this being a Silver Age game about Batman's first encounter with the one and only Joker.  I've also read that there may be tie-ins or crossover material with Justice League members like Superman.
     Personally, I'll enjoy any game they make, I'd just prefer a sequel to a prequel.  BUT, a sequel with reminiscing flashback segments would be quite welcome.  Think about learning new gadgets by incorporating a flashback to you receiving and practicing with the item.  Perhaps Scarecrow's toxin is seeping in and effecting Batman's memory.  There are plenty of ways to do a multi-time frame game.  Break it into chapter segments. 
     It just feels like Rocksteady has built a huge amount of momentum in the story and I would like to continue seeing where it goes.
