But will it be developed by Rocksteady?
No vehicles for Batman in Arkham City? That’s probably for the best we think.
Who has got what it takes to develop the BioShock franchise and what new directions could it go in?
Warner Bros Home Entertainment has decided to buy a majority stake holding in Rocksteady, the London based developer of Batman: Arkham Asylum. The development team there is already working on a sequel to last year’s critically and commercially successful Dark Knight adventure, which is to be published by Warner. The company, better known for its movie and TV production, has been expanding rapidly in the games market.
Voice Actor and motion capture action hero Mark Sloan has expressed his belief that Rocksteady, makers of the soon to be released Batman: Arkham Asylum, have been commissioned to help bring us the next Hitman game. Listing his recent work on his website Sloan lists Rocksteady as responsible for some motion capture work he did on “Hitman 5″. This has naturally enough lead to some speculation that Rocksteady could at least be lending a hand to IO in the development of Agent 47′s long awaited return, if not developing the whole game itself.
