Arkham Universe? Sounds interesting.
They are upto Arkham Give it a rest.
They nees to give Batman a rest. Really they should. As for Rocksteady, they have the talent thats for sure so I hole they choose their next project and not forced to do it. If they actually did choose their next game then count me in day 1.
Time another dc to get the spotlight. The way batman arkham knight ended i dont see what else they can do
I'd love to see what they can do with their own ideas and freedom.
They could do another prequel. That's what I'm hoping for. Something to connect Origins with Asylum
Probably Batman part 47.
Hopefully it's Superman. Hopefully it's as good as Spider-Man. Hopefully it's not too dark. And hopefully it kicks off the DC video game universe. I honestly don't get why dc is so obsessed with dark and gritty. It clearly isn't working.
Agreed on all fronts. DC really has to let their other properties shine. Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern all have the makings for a great video game. It's time to give Batman a rest.
I slightly (only slightly) disagree - yes the movies/universe they are attempting to make are not working, and I believe the tone of their movies is not the cause. Character development/cohesion are a huge issue for DC/WB right now. They were wrapping up Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, meanwhile Marvel was already introducing us to the Avengers (which was a 4 year journey). DC tried to play catch-up and nothing was really ever fleshed out. It would be really neat if they made a DC Gaming Universe. The Arkham Trilogy is well-made, and Bruce/Batmans story is really engaging. One of my favorite character lines of all-time, in any movie, show, game, etc. Is Bruce in Arkham City when he says "Strange knows Batman is Bruce Wayne." -- it is moments like that that help an audience delve deeper into a character; something the DC Movie Universe has failed to do.
Nah the dark and gritty was working and still can. You want it to be happy with flowers n butterflies, Marvels the one for you.. Batman Arkham, nolan trilogy, man of steel all dark and gritty and worked. Batmam vs superman would have worked if it wasn't ruined by a few scenes... Justice league was so shite due to them trying to have a light hearted tone. Dc characters work best dark, marvel work best light.
I wouldn't say Man of steel was dark and gritty. It was just more real. And I like Man of steel. Justice League was garbage because it wasn't a real sequel and because of how bad Batman was in that movie. Batman is the only one that being dark works for. He is the dark knight after all.
Hopefully by E3 2019 we will find out. Id rather a new i.p. than another Batman.
Wonder what WB Montreal are doing if the above rumour is true? Ideally you want Montreal to develop a Batman Court of Owls game and Rocksteady a Justice League/Superman.
Anything but that leaked Harry Potter stuff for me . Don’t get me wrong it looked decent ,?but I’m just not a Harry Potter fan.
I can't see Warner letting Arkham die. But I can't see Rocksteady doing another one either. They were vocal on Knight being THEIR last in the series.
Hopefully that really cool Harry Potter RPG.
Microsoft aquired rocksteady and they are making a new gears of war.
I really hope it's not Batman. The Arkham games are some of my favorite games of all time, but I want to see something else at this point. I obviously would love to see their take on Superman, but I'm open to other ideas as well.
What if this is the WB Montreal game?
Give me a much larger world, dynamic time of day and the ability to play as Bruce Wayne. That's a game I would love to see
Well, if they want to continue the Arkham series afterall, they've kind of written themselves into a corner, and we've had enough prequels. Maybe there are other IPs they could work with? Who am I kidding, I'll buy it regardless...though probably not at launch if it's another Arkham rehash.
