I'm pre-announcing it's month long delay due to having to optimize the PhysX engine  icon_twisted  looks like it takes place not long after the end of the first game, as the Joker looks pretty beat up still.  I wonder how far off it is though, could they indeed be aiming for a 2010 release?

I'm honestly expecting more of the same, with little innovation, maybe some updated graphics but another great story.  I can live with that.  Paul Dini can turn out some good stuff, and he's used to wiritng monthly comics so I doubt the turn around would be tough for him.

I can live with that too but I think it would take at least 18 months, if not 2 years, to just do that.  I'm worried that announcing now means they are targeting a release by next holiday season and I think 14-16 months development is just obscenely short this generation.

To be honest though, they really can reuse a lot of assets for a sequel without the reused assets feeling out of place.  It's still the same city, architectural style, and same characters.

Left 4 Dead 2 had probably less than a year in development using most of the same engine assets with new models and AI mixed in and it turned out to be pretty decent. sure, you can probably point out a ton of games that didn't turn out so great with a quick dev cycle but it is possible.

L4D2 is a really good example (in a positive way, I'm assuming, since I haven't played it).  Last generation there were quite a few games with approximately one year of dev time, both good and bad.  This generation?  Not so much.

My knockoff meter tends to go off if the sequel/followup/all-but-in-name sequel goes to a different developer. Presumably Rocksteady wouldn't screw it up.  icon_smile If they do, they're officially a "flash in the pan," rather than a dev you want to trust and always look forward to playing their next work.

Me, I'd rather see them try to work the same magic with a different iconic comic book character (DC or otherwise). That would prove at least a little versatility, in my book.

I'm not so much worried about Rocksteady as Eidos making really poor decisions and forcing them into it.  However with Square-Enix now involved I'm a bit more optimistic.

Optimisic that we'll be nickled and dimed with DLC that should have been included in the game?

I believe the planned DLC includes the cape, cowl, batarangs, and utility belt.

Because initially, you'll run around in tights and a black-painted paper bag over your head.  ninja But still, the DLC is entirely OPTIONAL!  icon_wink

My other thought is BAA2 will consist ENTIRELY of you crawling around conveniently sized air vents and gobbling up bad guys like a muscular Pac-Man. It's only when you buy the DLC that you finally get out of the shaft...
=================

Frankly, I'd rather see Bats in a new environment. I dunno where. Maybe they could have Wayne Manor infested with bad guys or something. I don't expect it to become Grand Theft Auto w/ Batman, but I wouldn't want them to see it as an "Arkham Asylum" franchise (where they had to keep setting the game there) rather than as a Batman franchise (that has some freedom to try different environs).

Actually, it looks like Gotham has become the Asylum, but I wish Joker wasn't the main bad guy in AA2.  Batman has so many great enemies to use

Spoiler for Hiden:
If you checked the IMDB page for the game up until recently, you could see listings for both Harvey Dent and Alfred, none of whom appeared in the original game. I believe they had recorded lines for a DLC scenario featuring them, but they probably ditched that and decided to expand the story into a full sequel. I'm kinda disappointed in this, though having Two Face as a main villain will be fun.

I don't think so. The roles listed were specifically the roles included in the game, plus the two I mentioned.

Yeah but as I recall at some point just prior to the game's release someone just uploaded a list of Batman:TAS actors, assuming they were all the same.  Then the actual roles included in the game eventually got edited but no one bothered to edit out those who weren't in the game. 

The short of it is that you often can't trust IMDB on these things since anyone can edit it.

I could see Catwoman being a good boss fight, or maybe she could be a replacement for the Riddler with puzzles.  I've never really though much of the Penguin, even in the comics he's been relegated to being another persons lackey.

maybe we'll find out someone like Ras al Ghul is pulling the strings behind these events, tying them together into a third game.

A little flaw to your theory: Catwoman, Batgirl, The Penguin, Mr Freeze, and many other characters weren't in the list I'm talking about.

Of course, since the IMDB page has been edited since then (possibly by request of the publisher), I won't be able to prove it.

No, I believe you that they were on it.  I just don't necessarilly believe that whoever made the IMDB entry had some kind of inside info about DLC or anything.  I'm too lazy too dig it up but I recall a discussion somewhere (perhaps on QT3) at the time that indicated there were several mistakes in the IMDB cast list that made it seem like someone had put erroneous information information based on the cast list from TAS.

this could be mark Hamill's last outing as the Joker?  I guess they'll just have to get some bigger buckets of cash  icon_wink

Gamespot has some interesting excerpts from the Arkham Asylum art director's recent talk at a developer conference:
Arkham Asylum art director talks mistakes
Quote
The Detective Vision mode, which gave the player a major advantage but obscured the game's painstakingly unique art direction, was "very powerful," but in keeping with Batman's high-technology arsenal, said Hego.

"It was a gameplay decision to make detective vision so strong...we're going to try not to do that mistake again." Hego added that Rocksteady would "make it more like augmented reality next time," shedding some light on how detective vision might be toned down and adapted for the studio's next Batman game.

God I hope they don't go making it run on a "battery" or something like that.  Being able to use that detective mode whenever and for however long I wanted was very liberating.
