The rumor mill is in full swing again and this time it’s coming straight from pcgamer.com. Reports are coming out that Rocksteady is posting job listings for a new AAA game. If the name Rocksteady seems familiar then you’ve probably played the good Batman Arkham games (*cough* not origins *cough*). If you remember titles like Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Arkham Knight you’re thinking of the right studio.
Taking the rumor that Rocksteady is making a “highly anticipated upcoming AAA title” I have to wonder what it is. If I’m not mistaken I remember a few months ago another rumor floating around. Rumor that a Superman game was coming out, in the same style as the Arkham games. What I’m suggesting is that Rocksteady is making a Arkham style Superman game and it’s finally in production!
I have extremely fond memories of the Arkham series. I first played Arkham City and completed it to 100%. Even with those dumb Riddler trophies. I’ve since played all the other games and love them. The combat style was unique, the plot engrossing, and the animation superb. That’s not even mentioning the voice talent of Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy.
I’m hoping Rocksteady is working on Superman. And maybe this will be better than Superman 64.
