IGN Italy claims that the two games will arrive on current-generation consoles by Christmas, suggesting that Batman Arkham Origins, which was developed at Warner Bros. Montreal, would not be given the same upgrade.
Warner Bros. has yet to announce the game or verify the rumor. The corporation declined to comment when approached by GameSpot.
Should the rumor prove to be true, it would mean the remaster would come months after the release of Batman Arkham Knight--believed to be the third and conclusive chapter in the trilogy, developed by London studio Rocksteady.
The first two Batman Arkham games gained near-unanimous praise from critics. GameSpot's Arkham Asylum review explained: "Everything about this game--the impressive visuals, stirring soundtrack, superb voice acting, fiendish puzzles, hard-hitting combat--feels like it has been lovingly crafted by a development team that's both knowledgeable and passionate about the source material. Miss out on this one and the joke's on you."
Its successor, Arkham City, was also rated highly: "From the speedy exhilaration of soaring high above the streets to the atmospheric thrill of discovering long-forgotten secrets in the tunnels below Gotham, this is an unforgettable adventure that will keep you coming back to the cape and cowl long after you've seen the credits roll."
Originally intended to be released in 2014, Batman Arkham Knight's release date has been delayed again, this time to June 23. The game is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. For more, check out some select images in the gallery below.
