This week some folks over at Super Annuation dug up 15 domain names registered to Warner Bros., who absorbed Rocksteady Studios earlier this year after Batman: Arkham Asylum won Game of the Year and sold something like a gazillion copies. And it was great. For my money, the best superhero game ever. Great story, spectacular voice-acting, great mechanics, and a richness in art that (ironically) we have never seen in the superhero genre GAW GAWK GAWK!! Excuse me while I remove Rocksteady’s D from my mouth.
Anywho, we’re all pumped for the sequel, which is rumored to take place outside in Gotham, which would obviously be awesome.
Supper Annuation has dug up fifteen separate Arkham-flavored domain records, each created on July 7, each pointing to Warner Bros. name servers. While some seem more geared towards viral websites surrounding the game, like stopmayorsharp.com and wheresbrucewayne.com, others seem like they could definitely be contenders for the game’s official name:

Hopefully we’ll see some more news on the next Batman title at Comic-Con, which kicks off July 22.
