    No rocksteady, no mark hamill. I'm not sure if it will be able to reach the bar set by them.

    Love the new suit, looks more practical and seems to have taken a lot of inspiration from Nolan's and Injustice's Batman, and even the new52 comics' Superman :D

    I just hope the gameplay feels as solid as AA and AC. Bit worried as this is not being developed by rocksteady. But hope WB monreal can deliver. Suit looks awesome.

    The folks at WB Montreal did develop Hulk: Ultimate Destruction which was a ton of fun. I don't think it will be a turd but I'm not sure it can reach the bar set by Rocksteady either.

    I've updated the OP with more information about the game.

    wonder how game play will change from shift to new studio. RockSteady was spot on with the control mechanics and free flow style of fighting as well as level design. Love both the Batman games. I seriously hope WB doesn't crap this series trying to make a lot of sequels in quick succession.

    They are using Rocksteadys custom Unreal Engine and keeping the free flow mechanics, so it shouldn't change much. I won't have much of a problem with annual releases as long as they have multiple high caliber studios working on their own Arkham game for 2 - 3 years, a la Assassins Creed.

    Yup. No point in botching the sales for one platform by delaying its release.

    Back in Arkham City, the game had huge skyscrapers in the background which can only be accessed through a glitch(youtube it). Looking at the new info, they clearly say the game world is divided into two parts, Gotham old and new. So I'm guessing WB montreal are going to take Arkham City and re skin the hell out of it and add the gotham content. So consider it an expansion.
