A number of Batman fans were disappointed yesterday by the news that Arkham Origins would not be developed by the team at Rocksteady but instead be handled by WB Games' Montreal division.

The beloved studio behind the first two games has spoken out in support of this new game despite the fact that they have no direct involvement in it. "Rocksteady is excited to see WB Games Montreal developing the prequel to the Batman Arkham franchise," Rocksteady's Sefton Hill told Game Informer (via CVG). "We are confident this talented team will craft a fantastic experience, bringing the origins of the Arkhamverse to life."

The director of the upcoming prequel, Eric Holmes, discussed how this new entry in the franchise will build upon the series in exciting ways. "It gives us the opportunity to refresh things a bit. Refresh characters, refresh ideas, refresh the dynamic between Batman and other characters, and refresh the world, too. Batman hasn't become the character that we know and are very familiar with," Holmes explained.
