It seems like Batman may not survive the see the end of Batman: Arkham Knight, or at least that seems to be what Jim Gordon thinks. A new TV commercial for the game opens with Gordon delivering the line, "This is how the Batman died."

Now, the Arkham series does have a bit of a history with killing off major characters, most notably the Joker in Arkham City. However, just because Gordon thinks Batman is dead doesn't mean he is. He's been believed dead on numerous occasions before, including the ending of The Dark Knight Rises. The point it that the struggle in Arkham Knight is so great that Gordon could actually believe that Batman died in the conflict.

Now, before you get upset about spoilers, remember that his is an official advertisement. This is information that the creators want you to have in order to get you interested and excited about the game. And considering the context, that it sounds like Gordon is about to tell you the story of how Batman died, it's almost certainly a line delivered very early on in the game.

Jim Gordon thinks Batman died during the course of the Batman: Arkham Knight's story. Are you intrigued yet?
