Gamers who want the full Arkham experience on their next-gen console may be in luck, as a GameStop employee as revealed that a new compilation game called Batman Arkham HD Collection will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The evidence was leaked to Eurogamer, revealing what would be included:

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum (including all DLC)
  • Batman: Arkham City (including all DLC)

Unlike rumors a year ago, Batman: Arkham Origins seemingly won’t be included. Perhaps only the Rocksteady-developed games are being included. The lone Xbox One/PlayStation 4 Arkham game, Arkham Knight, will also apparently not be included.

Stay tuned.

This week’s news includes:

  • Former head of Rockstar North sues developer, alleges $150M in unpaid royalties
  • Oculus apologizes for Rift shipment delay, taking steps to speed delivery

Electronic Arts has officially announced Titanfall 2, releasing a teaser trailer showing a Titan approaching a drop pod and unleashing a sword, bringing the series closer to Pacific Rim.

The publisher was pretty brief in its press release, simply announcing:

“From Respawn Entertainment, the studio that brought you the award-winning Titanfall, comes Titanfall 2. Check out the teaser trailer at Titanfall.com and get a glimpse of what awaits you on the Frontier.

Be sure to mark your calendars for the worldwide debut of Titanfall 2 at 1pm PT on Sunday, June 12 at EA PLAY.”

We’ll be at E3 2016, so when the show comes around, we’ll have all the info for you. It must be noted that EA won’t be on the show floor itself, however.

This week’s news includes:

  • Microsoft cancels Fable Legends, closes Press Play Studios, considers shuttering Lionhead Studios UK
  • Report: SpinTires developer sabotaged his own game
  • 10 months later, MAME finishes its transition to open source
