Batman: Arkham City Developers Working on 'Cool and Exciting' Game
With Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham City winning Bafta's recent Action Game of the Year award, one would expect another Batman title to be in the works.
The company's previous title, Batman: Arkham Asylum, also won game of the year in 2010. After successful runs for both titles, Rocksteady is running high on confidence to make any game a favorite for both fans and critics. Sefton Hill, Rocksteady's Game Director, commented on Batman and the company's next project.
"For us it's a privilege to work with Batman. It's always been something amazing for us...It's great to be in such a position that we can kind of choose what we want to do next. We've started work on it, and it's something pretty exciting. That's one thing we can definitely say. We're really excited about it."
Hill describes the new project as "something really cool" and "a bit different" that will "excite people."
The Batman titles combined great story telling, unique gameplay, eye catching visuals, and voice acting. Mark Hammill skillfully voiced the Joker and won Bafta's Performance of the Year award. One can only guess that their next game may be an adaptation for upcoming comic book/movies such as Superman, The Avengers, X-Men, or Spiderman. It may be too early to rule out a possible 3rd Batman title, but Rocksteady has been known pull out a few surprises and might be working on a different game entirely. Rumors were also swirling that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could be a possible project.
"If you know one thing about Rocksteady, we have a few surprises. So you'll have to stay tuned," said Hill.
Fan and critics alike will be on the lookout for Rocksteady's next exciting project announcement.
