A number of newly registered domain names related to the Batman franchise have raised speculation about Warner Bros.' plans in regard to the future of its Arkham video game franchise.

Originally spotted by Fusible, the domain names range from titles such as "Arkham Universe" to "Batman Arkham Arises" and "Batman Arkham Origins."

According to the report, there is no way to tell whether the domains pertain to films or video games, or even if Warner Bros. was the company that registered the titles, since the domain holder is protected by a privacy service.

However, Fusible reports that Warner Bros. is a client of Internet brand protection company MarkMonitor, which is behind the domain registrations.

The registered domains are:

In July last year, it was reported that the next game in Rocksteady Studios' Batman series will be a prequel detailing Batman's first encounter with the Joker and will be based on the Silver Age of DC comics from the 1950s. Reports stated that the game is not expected to arrive until 2014.

The last entry in Warner Bros.' Batman game franchise--Batman: Arkham City--was developed by Rocksteady Studios and shipped for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 18, with a PC version following on November 22. The game received a strong critical reception and shipped 6 million units.
