Rocksteady Moving on From the Batman Arkham Series Is the Right Call

Rocksteady is poised to leave the Batman Arkham series behind it, and while that may disappoint some fans, it's the best move for all involved.

If their heart isn't in it to make another Batman game, I'll support them. It can get monotonous spending years working on the same IP over and over. However, and I may be in the minority here, but I do feel that the Suicide Squad is the wrong IP to move to. There's so many better options out there. This may be one of those situations where they started working on it years ago when it was cool and now after the movies have come out and mostly sucked, it's too late for them to change directions. Just have to go with it.

I think Suicide Squad has potential though. I mean, the movie wasn't great, but the team has recently done well in other media forms. Unlike a lot of comicbook team-ups, the Suicide Squad has a regularly-changing membership and provides the freedom to kill off key characters, making it one of the more flexible IPs available. This may allow Rocksteady to tell the story they want to tell more than other existing IPs.

Arkham Knight is the best batman yet for me.. The Batmobile gameplay was great.. I bought the game a little later, due to people complaining there are too much Batmobile missions and the game is focusing on that only.. Well they were full of shit.. It adds another dimension to the game.. I have platinum trophy in it

Suicide Squad as a game seems refreshing title. I felt so happy with seeing the tease

and I don't know why.

I’d agree with what you say, but it’s Rocksteady if any developer can make a good superhero/villain game. Then Rocksteady is the team to do it, even if the movie may have been a flop.

I hate the mentality of moving on to another game just for the sake of moving on.. if they can keep the game fresh and fun keep them coming.. the dev team never disappointed me with the Batman series so why wouldn’t I want to play another Batman game, especially if it can be released close to the launch of next gen consoles..

Mario and many other long lasting series still works, so why not? The (in)famous COD series as well.
As long the devs are good and find inspiration doing them.

Well it isn’t just about your personal enjoyment of a game series. If the devs are tired of working on one series, one main protagonist for the past 10 years, then that’s all the reason they need to move on. If the devs aren’t inspired, then they aren’t going to make a good game.

why towards suicide squad tho as if there weren't any less shit characters

I remember people criticising Guerilla for moving on from Killzone. Then we got Horizon.

Sometimes, if things are getting stale it’s best all around to try something new.

C'mon give me a Superman game. It's way overdue.

If it counts we're gonna beat the crap out of Supes in Suicide Squad before the inevitable plot twist where they team up with him to stop whatever actual villain. Superman though is too overpowered.
