Unlike the first two Arkham games, Batman: Arkham Origins is being developed by Warner Bros. Games Montreal instead of Rocksteady. Athough, WB Montreal has full access to Rocksteady’s custom modified Unreal engine to capture the look and feel of the Arkhamverse. Platforms confirmed: PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC. Batman: Arkham Origins is set to release on October 29th.
