Rocksteady Studios Address Their Absence From E3 2018
A new game from Batman Arkham series developer Rocksteady Studios has been all, but announced from the various teases made by the developer over the past year. Rumors took over from there with speculation mounting with a supposed game based on DC hero Superman in the works. The unannounced title was said to offer an experience akin to the Arkhamverse, with a reported leak suggesting a planned announcement for E3 2018. The reveal ended up not happening, leaving many to wonder why the developer didn’t show for the event.
Rocksteady game director Sefton Hill responded to fans on Twitter, sharing a statement on behalf of their current project’s development team. Hill’s message would voice appreciation for the public passion for the studio, going on to tease a proper reveal to “be proud of” in due time.

With E3 on the tail end of proceedings, it’s looking pretty unlikely that Rocksteady is going to announce anything, whether it be a Superman game or something else entirely. Of course, just because the developer no-showed the event doesn’t necessarily mean we won’t get news about the project down the line. If DC’s Man of Steel does end up having his time in the sun, perhaps a grand unveiling at July’s upcoming San Diego Comic-Con could be in the cards. But if not, there’s always next year’s E3.
What do you think? Are you bummed Rocksteady’s rumored Superman game probably isn’t happening, or are you hopeful Supes will eventually be unveiled at the right time?
