It's been four years since Rocksteady gave us Batman: Arkham Knight and almost three since we got Batman: Arkham VR, so people have been speculating about what the studio's next project would be for a long time. There's been rumours of Justice League, Suicide Squad and more over the years, so we've seen people dream of an unveiling at pretty much every game event out there. The folks over at Rocksteady probably got tired of seeing disappointed faces every time, so when rumours about a The Game Awards reveal started surfacing last November they decided to crush those dreams by announcing their absence beforehand. That seemed to work, as they're now following the same recipe.
Rocksteady director and co-founder Sefton Hill has posted the following message on Twitter:
"Hi all! A number of you have asked so we wanted to let you all know up front that @Rocksteadygames won't be showing at E3 this year. We'll be watching as fans but remaining in London, hard at work on our next big project. Enjoy the show!"
At least he made it quick. Now we'll just have to wait and see if he prepares something similar for Gamescom in August or if they're actually going to make the reveal closer to home. Either way, this definitely makes it more likely that the secret project could be slated for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett.
