Rocksteady has shut down all the rumors by saying that they will not be revealing any new game at The Game Awards 2018 and their next game is not Superman.
Rocksteady’s next new game has been in rumors from a very long time. There have been many rumors hinting us that a Superman game might be in works but it all has now come to an end. Rocksteady released Batman: Arkham Knight years back and since then we have not received a new game from the Studio.
Rumors regarding Rocksteady’s next new game being Superman got that big that Rocksteady Games co-founder Sefton Hill had to address them before The Game Awards 2018.
Sefton Hill addressed the rumors on Twitter by saying:
Looking forward to #TheGameAwards this year! We’re still hard at work in our development bunker so don’t expect an announcement from @Rocksteadygames. When it’s ready to show, you’ll be the first to know. Spoiler: it’s not Superman ?
As the Tweet says, Rocksteady will not be a part of The Game Awards 2018. Though co-founder did confirm that Rocksteady is working really hard on its next game which is not obviously Superman. This news has pretty much disappointed all the DC fans. Marvel is definitely going to take the lead as it’s been some time since we got any new DC game.
Superman is the most powerful and biggest character from DC which is why everyone wants to badly play a game of him.
Spiderman PS4 was a massive success and since then we are just imagining ways of how a Superman game could work out. It doesn’t mean that there will be no Superman game ever. It’s probably because Rocksteady wants to take their time and maybe we could get it on the upcoming PS5 or Xbox Scarlet consoles.
Now since it’s not Superman then what could be the next game that Rocksteady is actually working on? We have many possibilities to think about. This upcoming game has been in development for some time as the co-founder himself confirmed back in 2016 that a new game is in development.
Maybe it’s the Justice League. Yes, it’s been a very long time since we got any Justice League game. The last time we received Justice League: Injustice for All back in 2002 for Game Boy Advance. Now the next game being Justice League also will confirm the rumors why we were getting so many leaks involving Superman.
Other than that, it could be based on any character from the DC universe. There’s a big roster available including characters like Wonder Women, Arrow, Flash and more. It can also be another Batman game. As we all know, Batman games are one of the best so seeing another one will not disappoint us.
If not anything from the above, this could be a brand new IP from Rocksteady without anything being related to the DC universe. Rocksteady worked on a game called Urban Chaos: Riot Response back in 2006 and since then they have entirely focused on making Batman games. So maybe a brand new IP and that won’t be anything bad after how well they have done with Batman games.
Well with Superman rumors aside, there’s a lot to look out for at The Game Awards 2018. The Game Awards 2018 will take place on December 6 and there are a lot of new announcements to be made there so stay tuned.
