Treat this as rumour until the full report comes out, but over on the Batman: Arkham City forums a user posted what he claims to be a quote from the Time Warner financial statement.

 

And we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise. So all in all, we expect Warners to post another very strong year in 2013. And with a little luck, the year should be as good or maybe even a little bit better than 2012.

Not a big fan of the Arkham games in the first place, although they are enjoyable. But this is kind of worrying.

lol the people in this thread a third game = milking

Why cant they do something without having arkham involved? Batman gotham city would be better. Helping regular people would be funner I think.

Also, OP it's not really a rumor, when TW confirms it's coming this year.

If Rocksteady isn't involved that would really kill my anticipation.

This is not milking. Yet.

If it's of highest quality like the last 2 games, bring it on.

They are so awesome with the combat. I hope whoever takes the game continues that.

Yeah I'd like to see that, everyone's gone insane and you can't tell who is good and who's bad, seemingly normal people will suddenly attack you and stuff like that, it would make fights way more interesting. Rocksteady not being involved would be disappointing BUT whoever is in charge would have a great foundation to build on so hopefully it will still end up being a good game.

YEEEESSS :D!!! That is exactly what I wanted! Rocksteady is a waaay to talented studio to get stuck doing the same game over and over. Instead they should move on to reinvent other genres the same as they did with Arkham Asylum.

except now Batman may return to being a mediocre game.

#21 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38219 posts) -

No Rocksteady? Does that mean we have an Arkham sequel and then the Silver age Batman game Rocksteady are doing? I'm confused

Yes, but I have played two amazing Batman games allready. Instead of a third I will get a totally fresh game designed by the geniuses at Rocksteady :D! Developers like that shouldn't milk an old franchise over and over. They should have as much creative freedom as possible so that they can inject the industry with new ideas (just look at all the Arkham copy-cats).

Hopefully Rocksteady has something brilliant up their sleeves after releasing the GOTG two years ago. I'm pretty excited about this, but worried at the same time. How much more will they be able to do with the franchise especially with how near perfect and exceptional Arkham City was.

edit: should have read more of the thread... So Rocksteady isn't working on this... Now I don't know what to think

Read the OP more carefully, rumour is Rocksteady is NOT developing this sequel :). That means they are not restricted to using their sleeves, but can use every single pocket of their development-tuxedos to pull out gameplay aces :D!

Edit: Ah you re-read the OP allready :)

Same.

Awesome sig by the way.

#27 Posted by padaporra (3437 posts) -

As much as I loved Arkham City, and I liked it a lot, I want Rocksteady working on the Silver Age Prequel.

#28 Posted by DivineSword (15778 posts) -

I am not really interested if Rocksteady isn't involve in this project, though I will probably take a wait and see approach.

Rocksteady is working on a different Batman game, due later. WB just hired another studio so they can start milking this franchise like Activision milks COD.

I never really cared for the Arkham games so I'll probably ignore this one.

It's not like milking is bad anyways :/

Milking is fun, but eventually the milk turns sour.

Would rather have a Justice League game or a Superman game but I will still get this.

#34 Posted by Chozofication (3746 posts) -

If it's even better than Arkham City, and on next gen hardware, i'll probably get it.

Also, they really need to work on their Bane character.  BAAADLY.  A Bane as cool as this

No RockSteady? Maybe they're working on a new IP or another super-hero game.

I think Rocksteady is working on the Silver Age Batman title that isn't part of the Arkham series.

#41 Posted by Blazerdt47 (5669 posts) -

Seeing how that is the only source we have so far, I wouldn't go on it.

When I read the title I was extremely excited, Arkham City is one of the best games ever. But if RockSteady isn't making the sequel then who is? The quality I'm afraid will be dragged down. 

#42 Posted by finalstar2007 (25853 posts) -

Current gen or next gen? :o

would love a new one to be shown on the PS4 next week

#43 Posted by svenus97 (2292 posts) -

Arkham Country?

#45 Posted by LittleMac19 (1638 posts) -
No Rocksteady = NO BUY I guess it's a fitting end, the movie series ended last year now the games are going back down under, how unfortunate.

According to Jim Sterling, the new developer may be Spark Unlimited. In other words, this game is f**ked.

More Batman? Hype prepared. :cool:

Glitchspot glitching on me. Heil was saying the last two games were great, I agree:

Exactly. Awesome games. Bring that feces on. 

[QUOTE="jg4xchamp"][QUOTE="MirkoS77"]"Rocksteady not developing". Excitement disappeared right there. archvile_78

That is a buzz killer. Please keep the fighting system the same, it stands head and shoulders above any other game I've ever played.
