Rocksteady Confirm That Their Current Project Is Not Superman

By James Kearle, 1 month ago
In recent weeks there has been a lot of speculation that Rocksteady Studios, best known for developing the Batman Arkham Series, may be working on another one of DC Comics’ blockbuster IPs, Superman. In light of these rumours, Sefton Hill, co-founder and game director at Rocksteady Studios, has taken to Twitter to confirm that they do indeed have a project currently under development. However, it isn't Superman.


For DC aficionados, this news will no doubt come as a disappointment, as Superman isn't known for its classic video games. Superman 64, released on the Nintendo 64 in 1999, is generally considered to be one of the worst video games of all-time. Thereafter, the last proper Superman game was 2006's Superman Returns, a movie tie-in which received mediocre critical reception. With this weak portfolio, fans of the Krypton superhero have had to appease their appetites with the Injustice Series, where Superman is a playable character with narrative significance.

Despite the news, knowing that Rocksteady's next adventure is on its way will still please many. With the Arkham series becoming one of the most highly reviewed series of games of the last decade, and a TrueAchievements player count in excess of 100,000 for each release, the developer's résumé leaves a lot for fans to be excited for.

What do you think Rocksteady's new project is? Let us know in the comments.
