Batman: Arkham Knight Dev Hiring for Someone with Multiplayer Experience

Multiplayer may be on the horizon for Batman developer Rocksteady.


Rocksteady released Batman: Arkham Knight earlier this year. It was the next Arkham game after Batman: Arkham Origins, which featured the series' first multiplayer and was developed by WB Games Montreal. It wasn't developed by Rocksteady, but it looks like the Batman: Arkham Knight developer is looking to make a multiplayer game of its own.

Found by NeoGAF user Nirolak, Rocksteady has posted job listings for lead and senior network programming positions. According to the posting, the studio is looking for someone with a "proven track record as a team lead with experience on at least two successfully published multiplayer titles."

The listing also says that the lead network programmer will "manage a growing team of network coders," insinuating Rocksteady's next game may be fairly multiplayer-focused.

WB Games has said there are "endless possibilities" for new Batman games. However, it's unlikely that Rocksteady is making a mutliplayer Arkham game, as Sefton Hill has said Arkham Knight will be the developer's last. GameSpot gave Rocksteady's last hurrah a score of 7 in our review.
