Here's what happens when a third-party developer makes a successful game for a publisher -- that publisher acquires them.

Such is the case with Warner Bros. and Rocksteady Studios, the developer of last year's critically and commercially successful Batman: Arkham Asylum. Warner Bros. has announced that its acquired a majority stake of the UK-based developer.

It took the unsolicited initiative and reinvented the Caped Crusader. Except now he has a raincoat instead of a cape. Also, he's a Puerto Rican guy now.more

Microsoft Store lists Batman: Arkham Knight for February

[Update: It seems that they've changed the date listing to read "Not announced" since this morning. Tease.]  We found out that Batman: Arkham Knight was delayed right before E3, and last week we learned that the wait mig...more
