Conroy will not lend his voice to Batman: Arkham Origins

The previous report of Conroy not lending his voice acting in the newest Batman Arkham title was confirmed yesterday. Kevin Conroy will not be resuming his long career of the most iconic voice actor of all time in Arkham Origins. It’s been confirmed that instead, Roger Craig Smith, the voice of Ezio Auditore from Assassin’s Creed, is confirmed as the caped crusader.
“We’ve been working for about nine to ten months on the next Arkham,” he said. “We all signed these contracts that we weren’t allowed to talk about this. The studio likes to completely control the roll out of any product, so they don’t like any of us to talk about anything. It’s now been announced. It’s an unbelievable game. I still can’t say anything about it. You don’t want me to anyway because I’d ruin it for you. But it’s amazing. It’s a huge, huge cast and a big story. It took almost a year to write and put together. They’ve been working on it for a long time.”
Not only do we get this tidbit of info, we also learn that Deathstroke will be a playable character. Whether this means he will be an extra skin, a full new storyline character, or just a battle brawler for the fight challenges is unknown at this point. What is known, is that Deathstroke is being offered from Amazon for pre-order bonus. We should hear more about the game at E3.
