Batman Arkham series will go on “as long as we’ve got stories to tell”- Rocksteady

Posted By | On 02nd, Oct. 2011

Rocksteady has a good thing going with the Batman Arkham series, with 2009’s hit title, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and the shortly upcoming, Batman: Arkham City, which is already getting strong praise from reviewers.

Of course, we’ve been wondering how long this franchise will continue, and if we will have a third Arkham game, and more after that. Rocksteady has vaguely said that the series will continue as long as there are stories to tell in it.

“I think as long as we’re still enjoying it and as long as we feel we can contribute to the Batman universe,” Rocksteady’s Dax Ginn told CVG. “That’s how it feels. 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.

“So as long as we’ve got stories to tell,” he concluded. “So long as we feel we can do that and do that really well.”

“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,” Ginn explained. “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.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future but right now I feel like we’re in a real sweet spot with the games that we’re making, the opportunities that we have so I don’t really want that to change.”

Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated.
