Initially, rumors started to spread that we got a European release date for Batman: Arkham City .
Not long after the first rumor began to circulate, Warner Bros. confirmed to Eurogamer that the hotly anticipated sequel will launch on October 21 in "Europe and other global territories." And now, the North American date is here, too- October 18. Arkham City is the follow-up effort to Rocksteady's breakthrough blockbuster, Batman: Arkham Asylum , a game that garnered high praise from critics worldwide. It helped to solidify the developer as an elite design team and finally shrugged off the less-than-enviable stereotype that all superhero video games are just plain "meh." With Arkham City , the Caped Crusader hits the streets and must deal with all new foes. New villains will rear their ugly faces and new goals must be completed; early footage and info proves the production should be super polished and massively entertaining.
It's one of the first major titles for 2011 that has an October release date but if history is any guide, many more will decide to launch that month.
