Kevin Conroy, the one true voice of Batman, had some disappointing news for fans of the caped crusader at a Q&A event last week. Apparently, Rocksteady and Warner Bros. are done with the Arkham games for good.
The Arkham games were mostly great, but they do have some dishonourable mentions on our list of the worst boss fights.
At Wizard World Nashville, Conroy was asked if Warner Bros. had plans for further Arkham titles. “I can’t believe that they’re not going to do another one, but they’re not,” Conroy says. “They made literally billions of dollars on those games. But no, there’s no plan to do another one.”
The Arkham story concluded pretty definitively in Arkham Knight, but there’s certainly more room for further Batman tales, especially given the precedent set by the side story in Arkham Origins. And hey, I’d love to see that Silver Age Batman game that was rumoured ages ago.
It is worth noting that Conroy might not necessarily be clued in on future points of the series, especially given that they did go with a different voice for Origins, but after spending most of the decade with Batman I wouldn’t be surprised if Rocksteady are ready to move on. Given the tepid response to Origins, I wouldn’t expect Warner to put that series with anyone else, either. At least we’ll have Arkham VR, right?
