Rocksteady Makes Statement Regarding Their Absence at E3

Rocksteady: “We’ll share it with you as soon as it’s ready.”

Observant E3 viewers may have noticed that Rocksteady, developer of the hit Batman: Arkham games, skipped E3 this year. Acknowledging their fans’ disappointment, Rocksteady has put out a statement regarding their absence.

Sefton Hill, game director and co-founder of Rocksteady Studios, posted this on Twitter:

The message, which Hill says is from the entire Rocksteady team, reveals that they will share their next game as soon as it’s ready.

“We know some of you were disappointed that we were not at E3 this year,” Hil writes. “The whole team has been reading your comments, and all of us here at Rocksteady really appreciate your passion for our next project. Knowing how much it means to you keeps us inspired and energised to deliver a game that you will be proud of. We’ll share it with you as soon as it’s ready.”

While Hill’s comments are appreciated, there is still some disappointment from fans that they have to wait considering how long it’s been since their last full-fledged game, not counting Batman: Arkham VR.

The last game the developer released was Batman: Arkham Knight in 2015, which received widespread critical acclaim. Rocksteady’s next project has been widely rumoured to be a brand-new Superman or Justice League game. Considering how successful their Batman games have been, it’s no surprise why fans are so excited over the prospect of another high-calibre superhero game featuring a new DC character. If the rumours are true and that a Superman game is in development, it will, at the very least, be better than Superman 64. It has to, right?
