Rocksteady making Arkham Knight ‘as if it’s their last game’

“Ever since Batman: Arkham Asylum, our approach has been to put everything we have into every game we make,” director Sefton Hill tells games™. “We never hold ideas back because you never know what’s around the corner. So I guess you could describe that as a ‘kitchen sink’ approach but I’d prefer to say it’s more of a ‘live every game as if it’s your last’ approach (mainly because it sounds more poetic).” (Batman: Arkham Knight, Dev, PC, PS4, Rocksteady Studios, Sefton Hill, Xbox One)

I think this game will be really something , Arkham Asylum and City were amazing especially asylum because it was really surprising a batman game to be that awesome , so i think this will truly be a masterpiece .
Witcher 3 , bloodborne , the order 1886, dying light , Arkham knight , halo 5, uncharted 4, phantom pain , Rise of the tomb raider, etc etc etc , 2015 is gonna be out of this world :)

It's an incredible time to be a gamer, but better yet - it's an EVEN BETTER time to be a gamer into comics and/or horror. We're lucky there are so many platforms and amazing devs out there catering for LITERALLY every taste. People that say 'te games industry is dying' are speaking out of their arses.

After batman they should make an Xmen game.. I'd soo love that

I'd prefer anime open world rpg, all they ever make is fighters. Super heros suck in comparison to anime heros. But if we were to get another id prefer a good superman game. As so far that's never happened

They've made plenty of decent xman games so I've already had my share with them.

You do realize they are owned by Warner ? Literally the owner of Marvel's rival entity ?

Not happening in the near future . And knowing Warner , if Rocksteady moves on to another property instead of a whole new ip , it will be their own from DC

It should be. I'd be okay if Arkham Knight is the last Arkham game. Either go to Batman Beyond next, or make a game out of another DC hero. A Teen Titans game would be sweet.

Young Justice would be better, a proper one.

Next story to break "Rocksteady is closing its doors, Batman Arkham Knight the last game in development"

There's no reason for them to. Both Arkham Asylum and Knight have been huge successes, both critically and commercially.

Wasnt serious bro.

...cause it is their last. Truth be told I'm fuqing Batman fatigued. I love me some Batman, but damn. Can these guys make something else. Seems to me like I was playing the same game for like 5 years straight. Plus the films, plus the cartoons.
Im damn saturated in it.
How about something else for a bit...I don't know, Shazam or whatever.

With the high stakes AAA games require every game can be the last. Look how Crytek is crippled from just one game that performed less than expected.
SegaGamer  +   100d ago
Shouldn't all games be made as if it is the last game they will make ?

It's basically saying they a want certain games of theirs made better than others.

I will buy a PS4 for this game!!

I like their thinking. Its like why just make a game to just make one? I wish other developers felt the same way.

I'm stupid excited for Batman: Arkham Knight. I've been thinking about taking two days off once it releases.
