I love the Arkham games, so much that I decided to make a timeline of them. The games will be in orange and bold text. The comic series like the Arkham City prequel will be in green text and bold. The animated movie 'Assault On Arkham' will be in red text. Timestamps and page numbers will not be in bold text. The dates will be based on Years by Batman. Anything before will be YBB (Years Before Batman). I have used the digital version of 'Arkham City: End Game' and the 'Arkham Unhinged' comic series for this.

Feel free to consult me in the comments if you notice any placement issues!

Timeline
'Initiation' DLC has Bruce Wayne training with The League Of Shadows.

'Arkham Origins' is set on Christmas Eve and Vicki Vale claims Batman has been fighting crime

'Cold, Cold Heart' DLC is set on New Year's Eve of the same year.

'Blackgate' is set three months after 'Origins' setting it in late March, and then two weeks after that, setting it in April.

I wonder if the rumoured Batman (Suicide Squad?) game will be apart of this continuity. Arkham Orgins did tease the Suicide Squad, but that may have been for the animated movie.

I believe they did tease the movie because it was released the year after Origins. There are two games rumoured to be announced 22nd August. One of them may be (i really hope) part of the Arkham continuity.
