According to a Reddit leak, the new Batman game from Rocksteady will be named Batman Arkham Crisis and it will launch around Halloween 2019. It will feature a mature and complex story with 12 acts and will swap the Batmobile for Batwing.

The latest Batman Arkham leak comes from a supposed game tester over at Warner Bros. who claims that Rocksteady's new game will be called Batman Arkham Crisis. The leaker revealed many details about the game including the story length, map size and game modes.

The story is described as complex and mature with 12 acts, each an hour long while every side mission will take up to three hours to complete.

If that doesn't sound fishy enough, the leaker also reveals that Batman Arkham Crisis' open world will be 1.5 times bigger than the one in GTA V. He also mentions that players will get the Batwing for easier travelling and one of the new features will be a full day and night cycle.

This one just doesn't make any sense as Batman usually operates during the night as he runs the Wayne Enterprise during the day. 

The leak also states that Rocksteady have been working on Batman Arkham Crisis for two years which doesn't really add up given the scale of the story, open world and the new features. On top of that, there is also mention of co-op mode which makes the two-year development time info even less believable.

Finally, the leaker also revealed the release date, and according to his info, Batman Arkham Crisis will hit the shelves during Halloween 2019.

Some earlier leaks suggested that a new Superman game has been in the works but the developers dismissed the rumours. Back in September 2017, Rocksteady's marketing manager tweeted that their next project will blow everyone's mind, but they are not ready to talk about it just yet.
