Rocksteady is Not Working on a Superman Game, Will Not be at The Game Awards

Rocksteady Studios co-founder Sefton Hill has confirmed that the developer is not working on a Superman game, and announced it will not have a presence at The Game Awards this year.

Rocksteady Studios is not, as has been heavily rumored, working on a game featuring the Big Blue Cheese. Rumors began to swirl as far back as June 2018, pointing toward a possible E3 reveal of a game titled Superman: World’s Finest. As clarified by Hill, those rumors were incorrect.

“Looking forward to #TheGameAwards this year! We’re still hard at work in our development bunker so don’t expect an announcement from @Rocksteadygames. When it’s ready to show, you’ll be the first to know. Spoiler: it’s not Superman,” he announced on Twitter.

The rumors surrounding Superman: World’s Finest picked up steam last week when a game going by the same name appeared on the Game System Requirements database. Given that Warner Bros. has cooled considerably on the Superman property’s big screen prospects, the timing felt right for a AAA game developer to take a crack at The Man of Tomorrow. Sadly, the closest Superman fans will get are his appearances in NetherRealm Studios’s Injustice series.

In addition to ruling out a Superman game as Rocksteady’s next project, Hill let fans know that the studio would not have anything to reveal at The Game Awards on December, 7. Gamers are unlikely to see another Rocksteady game this generation, unless it arrives very late indeed.

Founded in late 2004 by Sefton Hill and Jamie Walker, Rocksteady Studios made a name for itself when it released Batman: Arkham Asylum to critical acclaim in 2009. Since then, the British developer has gone from strength to strength, releasing Batman: Arkham City in 2011, Batman: Arkham Knight in 2015, and the excellent, if perhaps underappreciated Batman: Arkham VR in 2016.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
