Though the team behind the Batman: Arkham games were very clear that the latest title in the Batman series would be the final story to close out the general narrative, that didn’t stop speculation about a potential new game already in the works. Makes sense, the Batman: Arkham series overall was a huge hit but according to the voice himself; it’s officially done.
Kevin Conroy, the voice of “justice” itself, set the record straight once and for all about any plans Warner Bros. has for the future of the franchise. The question was posed at this year’s Wizard World Nashville, to which Conroy replied with a definitive “no.”
“I can’t believe that they’re not going to do another one, but they’re not. Isn’t that amazing? They made literally billions of dollars on those games, but no, there’s no plan to do another one. Sorry.” You can check out his live response in the video below:

When Batman: Arkham Asylum first released back in 2009, the title was instantly met with a positive reception. With its well-done stealth mechanics and engaging story; Asylum took off immediately spawning several games in its wake.
Though the final Batman: Arkham Knight did bring the beloved narrative to a close, there was still a VR spinoff that was released back in 2016. For those fans that just couldn’t get enough, there were also several portable titles; including the Batman: Arkham Origins mobile game, that were release subsequently from 2011 until 2016.
