Don’t hang up those batarangs yet; there might just be a third installment in Rocksteady’s Batman Arkham series.
Dax Ginn, marketing manager at the UK-based developer, says the studio hopes to keep the Arkham-verse going as long they have stories to tell and “so long as we feel we can do that and do that really well.”
“I think as long as we’re still enjoying it and as long as we feel we can contribute to the Batman universe… That’s how it feels,” Ginn tells CVG.
“There’s some amazing stuff going on with Batman all around the world at the moment and we feel as though we’re making our own little contribution in the form of the Arkham-verse.”
Ultimately though, Batman is a WB license, and thus it’s their call if another game gets made. Still, Rocksteady sounds to have a bit of a crush on the caped crusader and aren’t in a hurry to move on.
“There’s no other character that’s as awesome as Batman who’s got such an incredible rogues gallery, who’s got such and amazing structure for gameplay,” says Ginn. “All it takes is to give a guy an assault rifle and it changes the entire nature of combat.
“So you can put Batman up against 30 thugs in the street and just cane them and feel like a total don but as soon as one of them’s got a shotgun you have to rethink what you do. That’s really rare for a superhero and we really love using the facets of his personality to create gameplay out of that.”
