The debut trailer for Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Knight was pretty awesome, but it raised more than a few questions. Namely, is this game a linear sequel to Arkham City, and if so, does that mean the Joker is coming back? Spoilers for Arkham City below.
According to a Game Informer interview with director Sefton Hill, yes it’s a direct sequel and no the Joker won’t be back. Arkham Knight picks up about one year after the events of the second game, with a much quieter Gotham (Hill states that crime has been reduced to nearly zero). However, the Joker’s death has resulted in a fragile coalition of villains looking to take down the bat. The evacuation scenes we saw in the trailer are due to the threat of a chemical attack by the Scarecrow (presumably part of that plan), which paves the way for the gangs to move in and take control of the city.
Additionally, Barbara Gordon is going to return as Oracle, and bits of the game will revolve around some tension between the two Gordons and Batman.
