The Dark Knight will return again in "Batman: Arkham Knight," the fourth video game in the "Arkham" series — and this time, it seems like players will finally get to drive the Batmobile.

The game is being developed by the studio Rocksteady, which created the first two "Arkham" games, "Arkham Asylum" and "Arkham City." Fans weren't happy with the third game, "Arkham Origins," which was developed by WB Montreal.

"Arkham Knight" was expected to be announced later today (March 4), but the news apparently leaked when a sale page for the game appeared early this morning on a British online store called Game. British gaming-news site Videogamer.com was the first to break the story, posting a screencap of the leaked online store image.

"Be a part of the explosive finale in the Batman Arkham Series," the store page reads, suggesting that the game will be a sequel to the 2011 "Batman: Arkham City."

The leaked store page says that "Batman: Arkham Knight" will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

A fourth"Arkham" game was rumored even before "Batman: Arkham Origins" came out last November (read our review on Tom's Guide).  Rocksteady has reportedly been working on the fourth new game for several months now, although the studio hasn't announced anything about the project.

We will update this article with information from the official announcement later today.
