It’s rumored that Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, will not be voicing the dark knight in the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins. According to South African magazine, NAG, Warner Bros. Montreal passed on Conroy and wanted a younger actor to portray the cape crusader.
In an interview with Game Informer Geoff Johns said that "Arkham evokes a sense of insanity and chaos embodied in the twisted minds and colorful villains of the Batman universe. That had to start somewhere”. It does make a great deal of sense, Batman is younger and making him sound like his older self doesn’t seem logical. Like Johns said in the interview “It’s Batman before he’s good”.
Batman: Arkham Origins is slated for October 25th of this year and the companion game, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate will also be released on the same day for PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS.
