15 Potential Names For The Batman: Arkham Asylum Sequel

It's no secret Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment is working on a follow-up to the smash hit Batman: Arkham Asylum, but what will it be called? Perhaps one of 15 newly registered, Arkham-themed website domains contains a clue?

Super Annuation has dug up 15 separate Arkham-flavoured domain records, each created on July 7, each pointing to Warner Bros name servers. While some seem more geared towards viral websites surrounding the game, like stopmayorsharp.com and wheresbrucewayne.com, others seem like they could definitely be contenders for the game's official name.

I'd buy Batman: Arkham City or Batman: Ashes of Gotham in a heartbeat, though I am particularly fond of Batman: Siege of Gotham. Most of the titles seem to point towards a Gotham City overrun by Arkham inmates. It would fit with the teaser trailer that came out of last year's Spike Video Game Awards.

Here's the full list of registrations:

  • http://whois.domaintools.com/arkhamcity.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/batmanarkhamcity.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/batmanashesofgotham.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/batmanbrokenground.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/batmannewarkham.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/batmangranddelusion.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/batmanriseofarkham.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/batmansiegeofgotham.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/batmanstateofvillainy.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/cityofarkham.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/closearkhamcity.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/peopleforgotham.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/stopmayorsharp.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/waringothamcity.com
  • http://whois.domaintools.com/wheresbrucewayne.com

There's still the possibility that these domains have nothing to do with the sequel whatsoever, but as Giant Bomb points out, Mayor Sharp sounds like a reference to Quincy Sharp, the Arkham warden created specifically for Arkham Asylum. Unless he's making a movie cross-over, it looks like Warner Bros has big plans for Arkham's sequel on the internet.

    If the game is about the villians breaking out and causing trouble in Gotham, then...

    Batman : Siege Of Gotham
    Batman : War In Gotham City

    or GTFO! Then when the ending of that game is completed, where Batman actually DOESN'T WIN (I know it's impossible, but stay with me here), the 3rd game in the series where Batman fights back and kicks ass...

    Batman : From The Ashes Of Gotham

    Ashes of Gotham is all win to me!

      Ashes of Gotham just has that dark, desperate Gothic feel to it. It just screams Batman to me.

    Ashes of Gotham is a winner.

    Ashes of Gotham, New Arkham, Siege of Gotham or City of Arkham are the options I like =]

    I like Ashes of Gotham... but it does sound more like it will be a conclusion game.

    I think a lot of these will be used for Viral marketing rather than the game. Stop Mayor Sharp screams viral campaign to me.

    I will add my voice to all the others in proclaiming Ashes of Gotham the superior name, though I don't mind Batman:Grand Delusion.

    I agree with James Mac; Stop Mayor Sharp and Wheres Bruce Wayne seem like shoe-ins for viral sites.

    ashes of Gotham sounds good

    some awesome names there

    but yeah you could make a string of games based on that

    Siege of gotham->ashes of gotham(concludes a trilogy)-> then new arkham(a return to arkham with a new prison being built on the wrekage of the old one after it was destroyed during ashes of gotham

    I bet one of them is the Game's name and the rest are planned DLC packs.

    Just look at the names.

    I'm all for Batman: Newark Ham! Sounds delicious.
