Earth-2 is the very first wholesale retcon of the DC Universe, dating to1961 The development of a parallel earth explains why there are various versions of major heroes, such as the Golden Era Flash (Jay Garrick) and his better-known Silver Age reboot (Barry Allen). Batman was mostly excused from this as he was among a few significant DC characters with a single continuity going all the method back to his very first look. Still, if there’s an Earth-2 with a bunch of superheroes on it, then it likewise has a Batman.
This costume was part of the Batman: Arkham Collection that introduced in 2015 in Europe. Previously, the skin was offered only in the North American version of the 2015 video game, and just through a number of limited-time promotions. Last July, Rocksteady assured that the Earth-2 Dark Knight costume would be made free to all who own the PS4 game, around the world, sometime early this year.
Quick info for the gamers who have actually been asking. Batman: Arkham Collection is pertaining to Europe in Sept, and consists of the E2DK skin (the first time it’s readily available outside NA). Early next year E2DK will be released as a totally free download for everyone who owns BAK on PS4 worldwide.

So it’s not likely this points to anything in the reported sequel that WB Montreal is said to be establishing. The studio (makers of 2013’s Batman: Arkham Origins) has been teasing a brand-new Batman computer game since last autumn. Ideas as to what that’s expected to involve indicate the Court of Owls, a sinister society of Gotham City’s old cash elites, which first appeared in 2011’s Batman Vol. 2 # 1. That became part of The New 52, yet another wholesale reboot of DC’s lineup.
