The biggest disappointment from E3 2018 was that Arkham series developer Rocksteady Studios skipped it entirely. At least when San Diego Comic Con kicks off next week, I won’t be disappointed, thanks to a recent tweet from its co-founder and studio director.
Studio director Jamie Walker recently revealed that Rocksteady will be skipping this year’s SDCC and that it “won’t be ready to talk about our next game for a while yet.” Well, just stab me in the heart, Jamie.
Inb4 people start asking about whether @RocksteadyGames will be at SDCC this year: we’d love to be there but won’t be ready to talk about our next game for a while yet. You’ll know when it’s time.

Prior to E3 2018, rumors abound that a Rocksteady-developed Superman game would make its debut at the annual gaming convention. Unfortunately, as we now know, that wasn’t the case, and it’s seeming less likely that we’ll even find out what Rocksteady’s working on by the end of the year. Gamescom 2018 seems too soon, but the Game Awards 2018 might be Rocksteady’s last chance to start the hype train before 2019.
What we do know is that, whatever Rocksteady is working on, it will have some sort of online component. On June 29th, the studio posted a “Help Wanted” ad on Twitter for several positions, including a senior network coder. An online Superman game seems likely, considering the Man of Steel isn’t well known for having sidekicks. However, a mo-cap session that Rocksteady held earlier this year seemed to hint that the studio was working on a Justice League game, which would seem like the perfect opportunity to incorporate online cooperative multiplayer.
Hey, I said I wouldn’t write anymore Superman game rumor stories, but I never said anything about Justice League game rumor stories.
