Batman: Arkham Beyond - 10 Reasons It's The Perfect Sequel

It makes WAY more sense than just more of the same.

Before Arkham Asylum, superhero games were almost always seen as a joke outside of the odd gem like Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Asylum changed everything, introducing a visceral combat system and a gripping story featuring fantastic voice talents like Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy.

Since wrapping up the Arkham Trilogy with Arkham Knight back in 2015, fans have been clamouring for another release from Rocksteady Studios - who prior to developing Arkham Asylum, were almost complete unknowns. The persistent rumour has been a Superman game, but the Man of Steel's track record in the gaming industry is less than stellar. A Justice League game has also been touted, but balancing all the heroes may prove too difficult for the studio.

Instead of these, Rocksteady should look to the future, but of the Arkhamverse.

While Bruce Wayne's story may be complete, there are far many stories to be told. The best option would be that of Terry McGinnis, who assumes the role of the Dark Knight in the 1999 series, Batman Beyond. It would be an incredibly risky move from Rocksteady who are sure to make money with a Superman game as a breath of fresh air, but there are plenty of reasons why they should go Beyond Arkham instead.
