Once again, the Batmobile will roar in the vast urban jungle ruled by criminals and underworld mob bosses, and gamers will get the chance to step into the shoes of the caped crusader again.

The sequel to Arkham Knight’s title carried the code name of Batman Arkham Insurgency, and it is going to feature a new roster of enemies and bosses along with a great cast of characters appearing in the game.

Characters like Robin (Dick Grayson), Barbara Gordon, Lucius Fox, Alfred, and more will appear in the game. It is also going to take place in an expansive map of Gotham city with accessible buildings, Wayne Manor, Towers, Batcave, and more. The Batmobile will return and it will be used for chase sequences with sped-up fight mode as compared to the previous title.

The next title in the Batman Arkham franchise could also include Superman

It looks like the Dark Knight won’t be the only superhero making the rounds of the city. A report from ggrecon suggests RockSteady Games made a pitch for Superman game to Warner bros studio, which got approved.

If this news is true, then fans will indeed have a chance to become the man of steel within the Arkham franchise. Plus, fans of the franchise would probably remember notable easter eggs about Krypton’s last surviving citizen.
