It’s long been rumored that Batman: Arkham series developer Rocksteady is working on a Superman game. Detailed forum posts have been written about the topic. Intricate YouTube videos have been made about it. But a photo involving baked goods might have just blown the lid off this whole thing.
We know that Rocksteady is done with the Batman: Arkham series. We also know that Warner Bros. has given Rocksteady carte blanche on developing its “dream game.” And now we know that Rocksteady knows a place to get cool looking Superman cakes, after the official Injustice 2 account tweeted out a photo of a cake Rocksteady sent to the team.
It would be simple to pass this off as a kind gesture featuring one of the most popular comic book characters of all time (and one that is obviously featured prominently in Injustice 2). But we’re not ones to take the easy road.
First, why would Rocksteady send them a Superman cake when its best known for its highly touted Batman games?
Second, what’s the deal with that Superman logo? It’s definitely not the logo from the Injustice series or, frankly, any logo we’ve seen before. Some have said that it resembles Injustice 2 Supergirl’s logo, but the details are definitely not the same. To us, that can mean only one thing: this is our first look at what the Man of Steel’s logo will look like in Rocksteady’s Superman game.
Third, Rocksteady was reportedly supposed to announce its Superman game at the 2016 Video Game Awards, but obviously that didn’t happen. However, there’s another show right around the corner, and considering we haven’t heard from Rocksteady since Batman: Arkham VR—not to mention that this cake shows up only weeks away from E3—could hint at a big showing. Warner Bros. Interactive, Rocksteady’s publisher, will already be there to show off its upcoming Middle-Earth: Shadow of War and maybe WB Montreal’s rumored Damian Wayne game. A Rocksteady-developed Superman game would practically “win” E3 for WB Interactive.
Or, you know, it could just be one Warner Bros.-affiliated developer doing something nice for another WB developer, and the bakery that made the cake did its best to make a cool-looking Superman logo. Whatever.
