    According to a update from retailers, the release date is set for October 3rd, 2011.

    Here's a quote from the source:

    It seems fans of Batman might finally get a clue as to when to expect the return of the Caped Crusader to Arkham.

    Multiple retailers this morning have updated their preorder listings for Batman: Arkham City, now featuring a prominent release date of October 3rd, 2011.

    This date seems more than a simple placeholder, as it has been spotted at both Amazon and GameStop - and though it falls on a Monday, it's close enough to the usual release day of the week - Tuesdays.

    There has been no confirmation from Warner Bros in regards to the date, but that's to be expected. Batman: Arkham City is in development at Rocksteady Studios for PC, XBox 360, and Playstation 3.


    I can't wait for this game. I loved the first one.

    Loved the first game even though it was kinda linear.

    Can't wait for the sequel.

    I feel really bad not having played the first. A few of my friends have it though, I may just nab it from them so I can give it a whirl on my Xbox or wait until I get a new computer and play it on that through, um, "less than legal" methods.

    Still, it looks great, and my interest has really been peeking with superhero stuff. I'll be sure to not give this a miss.

    There's a lot of positivity about the first one. I should try it and then check this one out.

    Nice, I cannot wait to play this.

    I thought the first Arkham-game was brilliant due to it having everything that makes Batman what it is: it was dark; it had an interesting fighting system; it had stealth; there were many gadgets; it was not too linear and it had some detective-parts, which I think are often missing from other Batman media.

    In that game you actually felt like Batman! Amazing work and I hope they can top it with Arkham City...
