Origins wasn't a standalone game, it was part of Rocksteady's Arkhamverse.

Mrrrrrh, I dunno. There were some continuity issues.

But alright.

There may have been some continuity issues but Origins was referenced a lot in Arkham Knight.

- Deathstroke has the same design in Knight as they do in Origins
- Firefly often says "You won't stop me again!" and "I'll get you back for leaving me on that bridge!" during Gotham on Fire side missions
- The southern part of Arkham City (the extension present during Origins) can be seen, although not as clear as the North end (because it's further away)
- In the GCPD evidence room, you can hear Cash talk about evidence from previous villains - including Black Mask, and how it turned out he was Joker
- Thugs reference how Anarky would love what's happening in Gotham
- Anarky's mask is in GCPD evidence room
- Electrocutioner's gloves are in GCPD evidence room. Cash's voice over mentions how Batman handed them in after he was done using them
- Random thugs can be heard saying the event of Arkham Knight is their favourite riot, and they've been in every riot since Blackgate
- One riddle mentions that Batman visited/confronted Joker at the newly opened Arkham Asylum, shortly after Blackgate
- The detective mode from Arkham Origins reappears in Arkham Knight
- After taking out some militia watch towers when Deathstroke takes over, he says "I almost had you on that ship!" referring to where their boss fight took place in Origins.

I know, I know. I just refer to AO as a spiritual predecessor.

But yeah, like Harleen's first interview is totally different. Bane didn't break Batman's back in AO, and whatnot.

So okay. This one's a spiritual successor then.

If it is a Damian game, I really hope it is more of a spiritual successor. I'd rather have a Terry/Beyond game than a Damian one.

Ugh... I would have preferred the Suicide Squad game (could've been good?) or a sequel to Origins. Or a game based on another DC hero.

So here's something I never noticed before: when you first enter the morgue in Arkham Asylum, the whispers you hear are repeating "Fear, fear."

I thought it was saying, "Your mind will shatterrrrrrr, get out of here, get out of here, get out of here." I think you heard 'of here' as 'fear'.
