Batman: Arkham City will be released under Games For Windows Live

It’s no secret that Microsoft’s online gaming service Games For Windows Live has its share of critics — but apparently Batman isn’t one of them.

As confirmed by VG247, Batman: Arkham City will be released as a GFWL title, following in the footsteps of its wildly successful predecessor, Batman: Arkham Asylum. The news comes on the heels of varying reports regarding the online platform the game will use for its PC-based incarnations.

So, sorry Steamworks fans, but is the news really that surprising? After all, Bruce Wayne always struck us as a Microsoft sort of guy anyways.

Even if the news is a bit of a downer for some PC-gaming fans, there’s still a lot to be happy about regarding Rocksteady’s upcoming sequel to Arkham Asylum. For example, there’s that ridiculously cool Mr. Freeze trailer that premiered earlier this month. Go watch it again to cheer yourself up.

There’s also the the previously released Arkham City trailer featuring The Penguin, and those photos of the Batman: Arkham City Collector’s Edition package. (Those always work for me, at least.)

Batman: Arkham City hits shelves October 18 in the U.S. for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and of course, PC.
