E3 2018: Batman Developer Rocksteady Studios Breaks Silence on E3 Absence

Rocksteady Studios co-founder and creative director Sefton Hill has acknowledged the disappointment that many have been left with after the developer’s absence from this year’s E3.

Taking to his personal Twitter account, the Batman: Arkham Knight director posted a message from the Rocksteady development team that explained their reason not to reveal the studio’s unannounced project at E3.

“We know some of you were disappointed that we were not at E3 this year,” Rocksteady said. “The whole team has been reading your comments, and all of us here at Rocksteady really appreciate your passion for our next project. Knowing how much it means to you keeps us inspired and energised to deliver a game that you will be proud of. We’ll share it with you as soon as it’s ready.”

Rocksteady’s most recent release came in 2016 with Batman: Arkham VR for PlayStation 4 and PC.

Earlier this year, Rocksteady released an image of its motion capture team “fresh from a test shoot” on its next project.

It’s long been believed that Rocksteady is working on a Superman or Justice League title in the same vein as its critically acclaimed Arkham series, but these two rumblings have not been confirmed by the studio.
