Spike VGA surprises: Arkham Asylum 2, Green Day: Rock Band, Force Unleashed 2, True Crime

One of the most celebrated new series of the year now has a sequel, with Rocksteady and WB Games’ Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 (working title) now confirmed through a teaser trailer, which frankly doesn’t reveal much. The official website has launched, with roughly the same amount of information.

Green Day: Rock Band was another premiere for the night. Following the Beatles with Green Day is …well, kind of an odd choice, but the band IS exceedingly popular. This suggests that Rock Band 3 really is a long way away, and that Harmonix are now leaning towards the route of more physical releases instead of working on DLC, perhaps depending on Rock Band Network for DLC creation instead.

Another surprise comes in the form of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2. Details are again hazy, but we know from the website that it will be “Unleashed 2010”, presumably at least for PS3 and 360.

The True Crime franchise will be revitalised with a new title… named True Crime. (Apparently without a subtitle.) Since the first title was released in 2003, and the second in 2005, it’s been a long time coming. Set in an Asian city, the game features the Triads. No platforms were explicitly discussed, but expect it on PS3 and 360.
