Jack Matthams looks closely at what might be in the next Batman game
I was hoping we would get a different DC superhero or supervillain from Rocksteady. There have already been 4 Arkham games, think its time they tried something different.
origins wasn't rocksteady.
Well aware of that, still counts as an Arkham game.
The team in Montreal that did Origins is doing this game. This may mean Rocksteady is doing yet another bigger batman game down the road, or god willing, will be working on something fresh and cooler like Spawn, which could use all the same game mechanics and engine if you think about it, with some new stuff to keep things fresh and interesting.
Most likely they are since Insurgency is being developed by a different studio while Rocksteady work on something else.
The Arkham games have mostly been phenomenal. Not sure what could take it's place but I'd definitely prefer to see Rocksteady work on something fresh. Generally speaking I think it would be nice to step back from the Batman IP for a few. There's been a nice gap between releases but a little added time off with something new between would be great imo.
if so i hope it's not rocksteady, i love the studio, but i want to see something new from them.
And I hope it is Rocksteady as they know what they are doing and how to do it.
I agree. If it isn't broke, don't fix it. I enjoy the Batman games immensely. Give me more. But maybe a character swap. Let's get all of Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl, even the armored Batman from the Knightfall comic run (can't remember his name but his outfit was bad ass).
Azreal, is his name.
Agreed. Arkham Knight was the last Batman game being made by Rocksteady and any future Arkham/Batman games would be developed by WB Montreal who developed Arkham Origins. I think Rocksteady has earned the right to pursue other projects. It's a win/win for fans IMO. A new IP from Rocksteady and more games in the Batman universe by other devs.
Agreed. They did phenomenal with the batman IP, it built their name. Every studio this good needs their own IP. It would abusive imo to keep them locked behind commercial IPs, regardless of the hero. I'm not hating on DC games but rocksteady deserves their own property, at least one. It will probably the origins team and I wasn't very fond of that game, it was ok just kinda boring. The mr freeze fight was cool though.
Read the article. It's being developed by the team who made Origins
Has this even been announced or anything ? or is all this speculation.
I was hoping it would be another hero Constantine Green Arrow (Not that Arrow TV show crap) Jonah Hex Booster Gold
Constantine would be so epic or jonah hex.
Can't we get videogame featuring another DC character
Although I'd love a new Arkham game... WB, give us a Wonder Woman game already.
Hoping they'd make the gameplay more grounded and less combat heavy.
I hope not. Tired of Batman. Give us Superman!
A full fledged Justice league game would be a dream come true!
Its almost certain wb Montreal is working on another Batman game so yeah it could be. I actually enjoyed origins and would love to see them give it another go. I'm sure they will use the arkham name but it might not be a bad thing if they just started their own bats series. Rocksteady are probably working on a superman game or a justice league game but hey they might surprise us. Someone mentioned Jonah Hex now that would be cool. Either way I love the care they put into the arkham series and can't wait to play their next game.
Arkham Origins is incredibly underrated, it's much better than Arkham Knight imo. I'm really looking forward to a sequel.
I disagree but orgins is still top notch
A co op Justice League game would be awesome. Tired of Batman..unless hes fighting Superman!
It would have been awesome to see a Batman beyond game.
My check list for what I'd like to see is as follows. 1. Bigger emphasis on Boss battles 2. Better side quests that also flush the story out more. 3. More freedom in how to approach things. 4. Less batmobile and more of the other vehicles batman uses. 5. bonus objectives within missions that award unlockable suits and or extra narrative elements 6. More things to do within the open world 7. Alternating between being Bruce Wayne and Batman 8. More focus on detective work 9. Npcs such as other justice league members and the ability to get quests from them or call on them to help in certain situations 10. Conversation trees 11. Do away with combat trials and predator trials in favor of some sort of multiplayer that allows you to team up or battle it out with other dc characters. So I know that was a lot, but those are just some general ideas that would make sense
I knows it's marvel but a punisher game would be bad ass.
Bat needs a break. Make a good Aquaman game to market next year when the movie comes out. Water's come a long way in gaming. Don't spread yourselves too thin.
Kind of worn out currently with batman. Hopefully we will see a new game from rocksteady or different character.
