Batman: Arkham series by any means was one of the best in superhero genre. With Batman: Arkham Knight giving an ending to the story of the superhero, the hope of getting a sequel was pretty close to zero. Fans never gave up on the series though hoping that Batman will get another title by Warner Bros, possibly in the form of a prequel.
That theory was not far from reality since the same happened with Batman: Arkham Origins in the past. Yet this came completely untrue during a convention where a voice actor of the franchise was talking to the fans.
In his recent talk in Wizard World Nashville, Batman’s voice actor Kevin Conroy made it pretty clear that the franchise will not receive any more titles from Warner Bros since the company already made a ton of money from its sales. As he says:
“I can’t believe that they’re not going to do another one, but they’re not. Isn’t that amazing? They made literally billions of dollars on those games, but no, there’s no plan to do another one. Sorry.”

The last title in the series Batman: Arkham Knight had some serious performance issues regarding its PC version, with its official release being dragged so that it would run perfectly. People noticed huge FPS drops and problems on its rendering but on the long run the videogame was a big success for the company.
Rumor has it that Warner Bros is working on a Damian Wayne (Robin) title. Damian is the child of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul and thus the grandson of the villain, Ra’s al Ghul. The character was created by Mike W. Barr. Such a rumor is not yet confirmed by Warner Bros and its future release remains to be seen.
