This weekend at the VGAs, Mark Hamill may have revealed the name of the next Batman game. While accepting an award, "The Joker," played by Hamill, was clutching a script titled "Batman: Arkham World." The Joker then threw the script in the trash, saying "Oops, spoilers!" Check it out:
So, was this an early reveal of the title of the next Batman game? Or was this simply a joke? There is no way of knowing for now, but here's the evidence we have: Mark Hamill has said he's retiring from playing the Joker, so there's that -- maybe Remedy was just making a joke... But on the other hand, the VGAs are hardly an informal affair, and they obviously had to think about it before animating the segment, so I think there's a pretty good chance that will end up being the title.
I've put a call in to Arkham publisher Warner Brothers to get an official comment on the "joke," but haven't heard back yet. I'll let you know what they say when I do.
