Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham Knight might not have been the finale Bat-fans had been hoping for, but it's equally true that the developers have been sorely missed since - as has the Arkham franchise too, for that matter.
Now, it looks as though their sites have been fixed firmly to another DC Comics icon, with the Man of Steel himself, Superman, set to join his pointy-eared compatriot in the gaming medium. Yes, it's all rumour and hearsay at this point, but with Warner Bros. Montreal said to be concocting another Batman game, and Rocksteady already familiar with the DC license, it makes sense that they'd venture to the decidedly sunnier setting of Metropolis for their next project.
Keeping in with the theme of going bigger and better with their next work, Superman also marks a step up for the London-based developers. He's the only character who can outmatch Batman when it comes to history, and with the Arkhamverse having already provided the blueprint from which to launch sequels, spin-offs and prequels galore, Superman represents the natural evolution of the franchise.
But what should the next title look to include? With so many inspirations to look to, as well as a history of failed Superman titles, Rocksteady have quite a task at hand.
