IGN has gotten an exclusive release about the upcoming video game, Batman: Arkham Knight. Essentially, DC is going to release a new six-issue comic book mini-series by writer Pete Tomasi and artist Alisson Borges called Batman: Arkham Knight – Genesis, out July 29, will explore the villain’s mysterious past.
Thus far, precious little information about the Arkham Knight has been revealed by game-maker Rocksteady. All we know is that he’s a villain wearing a militaristic, Batman-inspired outfit with an Arkham symbol on his chest, he has a mysterious connection to Batman and wants him dead, and he’s teaming up with Scarecrow to carry out his plan.
However, this also means that the true origin of the villain will not be revealed in the game itself.
