There is a chance Robin will appear in Batman Arkham Origins. Eric Holmes, creative director on Batman Arkham Origins at WB Games Montreal hinted to Game Informer that Batman’s sidekick might make an appearance in the game. He said:
One thing I can say to partly answer that is there’s no Robin at this part of the continuity. There’s no concept of Robin. Batman works alone. Who knows, perhaps the first egg may be laid…
Right off the bat, I’m reminded of the old Joker Christmas jingle that says “Robin laid an egg.”
If Robin appears in the game he won’t start out as Batman’s sidekick at the beginning. Perhaps the origins of Robin will be told throughout the game, with Robin donning the costume near the end of the game to aid Batman.
Either way I’m looking forward to Arkham Origins a lot. Robin or no Robin, WB Games Montreal has big shoes to fill and I’m open to their interpretation of what the future should hold for the series. Batman Arkham Origins will release on Wii U, Xbox 360, and PS3 on October 29th.
