‘Batman: Arkham Asylum 2’ Teased In WB URL Registrations

A lot of speculation has already occurred regarding the events of “Batman: Arkham Aslyum 2.” For example, we already took a look at the likely villains in the game, mostly culled from the trailer. Warner Bros. just dropped another juicy nugget into our laps, thanks to a series of URLs that the company registered.

As usual, when it comes to intriguing URL registrations, Superannuation was right on top of it, noting that Warner registered the following URLs:

Sounds like the focus of “Arkham 2” will be on a war which takes over a large chunk of Gotham City itself. Sounds like Quincy Sharp, the former warden of Arkham, has mayoral aspirations, but things don’t go very smoothly and it’s up to Bats to clean up the mess.

I especially like the last URL. Where is Bruce Wayne? He’s around town fighting all the villains in a bat su- oh…was that supposed to be a secret?

Warner was mum on “Arkham 2” news during this year’s E3, which makes a fall 2011 release for the game more likely. A long time to wait, but when it comes to the follow-up of our 2009 game of the year, there’s no rushing quality.
