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.

Stalker 2 is Not A Revived Version of the Cancelled 2012 Project

Stalker 2

Stalker 2 has been confirmed as an entirely new project that has no basis on the cancelled 2012 sequel.

Roughly a decade ago, fans were excited when Stalker 2 was announced. Unfortunately, in 2012, Ukrainian developers GSC Games World was shut down and all progress on the sequel was put on hold.

All went quiet until 2014 where the company resurfaced and announced that development on a version of Stalker 2 was underway. Despite a developer build for the original Stalker 2 making its way onto the web, GSC Games World chose to start from scratch and create an entirely new AAA experience for the series.

GSC Games World has so far not stated why the decision was made to start from the beginning, aside from the assurance that the new game is currently in development and will hopefully hit stores in 2021.
