Square Enix And Eidos Not Involved In Batman: Arkham Asylum Sequel

Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 Teaser »


Warner Bros. is moving front and center with the sequel to this year's surprise hit, Batman: Arkham Asylum, with former publisher Eidos Interactive (now owned by Square Enix) being dropped to the wayside. Eidos was purchased by the Final Fantasy publisher earlier this year.

Rocksteady Games, the studio that developed the original, is still working on the sequel.

Warner Bros. confirmed neither Square Enix nor Eidos is involved with the second installment.

"Eidos is not involved," a Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment spokesperson told me.

The contract between Warner Bros. and Eidos must have only been for a single product and after the resounding critical and commercial response to Batman: Arkham Asylum, Warner Bros. must have felt confident enough to strike out on their own for the follow-up. It also means more money for themselves.
