Kevin Conroy will go down as a legend in the DC Universe for providing the role of Batman in multiple depictions - from cartoons to the Arkham video game franchise to movies.
Conroy provided his voice for the first two Arkham games: Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009) and Batman: Arkham city (2011). Roger Craig Smith replaced Conroy for Batman: Arkham Origins (2013), but the latter returned for Batman: Arkham Knight (2015).
WB Games Montreal, the studio that developed Arkham Origins, has teased another Arkham game numerous times on their Twitter page - displaying symbols that appear to be those of the Court of Owls and Ra's al Ghul.
So if there's another Arkham game, will WB Games Montreal bring back Conroy? In an interview with JOE, the iconic Batman voice actor said that he will not be providing the voice, should the franchise produce another game.
"I'm not," Conroy said, when asked about reprising his role, adding "I don't know why."
Back in 2017, Conroy said that there was "no plan" to do for another Arkham game, which even surprised him. Arkham gamers have waited over four years for another installment, and there have been countless rumors about a sequel.
Rocksteady Studios developed Arkham Asylum, Arkham Origins and Arkham Knight. It's been widely reported that the company doesn't plan to do another game. Should WB Games Montreal produce another game, it's anybody's guess if the events will take place after Arkham Origins (the lone game they developed in the franchise) or Arkham Knight - which left us with a mysterious and open-to-interpretation ending.
With Conroy not coming back for Arkham, the aforementioned Smith is a lead candidate to reprise his role. Aside from Arkham Origins, Smith has voiced the Caped Crusader in multiple direct-to-video films - including Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts (2015) and Batman Ninja.
If Conroy truly isn't coming back, it would be quite the surprise if Smith didn't get the role - especially if WB Games Montreal is the studio that develops the next Arkham game.
