Is The Next Batman Game Called "Arkham World?"

Batman: Arkham City Joker

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.
