Batman Arkham Developer Recruiting For “Highly Anticipated” Next Generation Project
Batman Arkham developer Rocksteady Studios has been as stealthy as the dark knight himself with their current goings-ons, having left no official word about their upcoming project for a while. The few hints we’ve gathered in the last year have offered vague information at best, confirming the presence of motion capture and the lack of any Batman this time around.
However, Rocksteady may have given another piece of insight into their project with a recent job posting. Of the over 20 new listings, several of them, such as for a Community Manager, refer to work on a highly anticipated “AAA” game that plans to release on “next generation platforms.” This not only points to a big game on the horizon for Rocksteady, but it likely might mean a long while before we see it actually come out.

Rocksteady’s recent issuing of marketing jobs may also suggest that a reveal could be in store soon, as these positions wouldn’t be very necessary otherwise. However, there hasn’t been anything else to indicate a swift announcement as of late, with the company’s most recent response only pledging more news when something substantial happens down the line.
As for unofficial channels, rumor has it a game based on fellow DC hero Superman is the developer’s next project, with numerous supposed details emerging over the last few months. The speculation states that the Man of Steel adventure will retain several of the same elements of the Batman Arkham franchise, but incorporating many new ones to accommodate the hero’s vastly different power set.
What do you think? Is Rocksteady gearing up for a surprise announcement, or is the Batman Arkham developer going to continue their low profile? Is that Superman game ever happening?
