With Batman: Arkham Knight completing the Arkhamverse trilogy, it shouldn’t come as a huge shock that Warner Brothers is already thinking about the future for games of the Caped Crusader.
“Batman is one of the cornerstone IPs for Warner Bros. With the Arkham series, we were finally able to realize the full potential of the character,” Ames Kirshen, vice president of product development for the Arkham and DC Comics games at Warner Bros. told the PS Blog.
He hints at something already being in the works by adding, “We don’t have anything to talk about at this time, but the possibilities are endless with a character as dynamic and beloved as Batman.”
There have been several rumors of other DC Comic properties being adapted to games, such as Suicide Squad and even Justice League but nothing has come from the Internet chatter; though that doesn’t mean they’re not being talked about.
“When choosing what DC Entertainment IP we might focus on for any game, it boils down to honing in on the IPs that map the strongest, genre-wise, to what fans are interested in seeing and playing.
From there, it’s about getting the development studios with the strongest passion for those IPs to make the games. It can be hard to choose what to focus on.”
