Batman: Arkham City is five times larger than Arkham Asylum
Rocksteady begins to provide details of Batman: Arkham City, The sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum which will arrive in October 2011.
Sefton Hill, Rocksteady project manager, said that Arkham City is "four or five times" bigger than Arkham Asylum in interview with Official PlayStation Magazine.
In his words: "Our objective in this game is not to make the biggest game we can, but to make the best game possible. Gamers who played Batman: Arkham Asylum will know how dedicated we are as a studio to injecting an incredible amount of detail into every environment we build".
"It is this attention to detail that gives our games the deep and intense atmosphere that so many players have found so compelling, and so we have had to seriously scale up our art team in order to bring the same level of detail to Arkham City, which is about 4-5 times bigger than Arkham Asylum" Sefton Hill concluded.
