Batman Arkham Developer Rocksteady Confirms Its New Game Won't Be At E3 2019
Sorry, maybe next E3.
E3 2019, which happens very soon, is expected to feature a lot of big announcements. One of the said big announcements, Watch Dogs Legion, has leaked and been subsequently confirmed. But among the things you can count on not seeing at the big expo is the next game from Batman: Arkham studio Rocksteady Games. Game director and co-founder Sefton Hill wrote on Twitter that the studio "won't be showing at E3 this year."
"We'll be watching as fans but remaining in London, hard at work on our next big project," he said.
Hi all! A number of you have asked so we wanted to let you all know up front that @Rocksteadygames won't be showing at E3 this year. We’ll be watching as fans but remaining in London, hard at work on our next big project. Enjoy the show!— Sefton Hill (@Seftonhill) June 4, 2019
It's become tradition for Hill to release these kinds of statements tempering fans' excitement and expectations for Rocksteady's new game.
Rocksteady is clearly still not ready to show off its new game. There are a number of rumours floating around about what it will be, as well as the idea that it's coming for next-gen hardware, but nothing is confirmed at this stage. Rocksteady created the Batman Arkham series, the latest instalment of which, Arkham Knight, was released in 2015.
Batman: Arkham Origins developer WB Games Montreal, meanwhile, is also working on a new game, but it too is shrouded in mystery.
WB Games Montreal and Rocksteady share a parent company in Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, which is one of the companies attending E3 2019 this month. That being said, nothing yet has suggested any new Batman games will be revealed at the show.
