Batman Developers: "We Haven't Hit Our Peak"
Batman: Arkham Asylum was excellent and we expect more top-notch greatness from next year's Arkham City. But if you think either project represents the best possible effort from developer Rocksteady Studios, think again.
This doesn't mean they'll be skimping on the new Batman; it simply means the designer is confident in their talent for the future. In speaking to Develop, Rocksteady boss Sefton Hill says it's not arrogance, but confidence that will allow the team to reach new heights. Provided the upbeat attitude can be properly managed, we should see some amazing stuff from this studio in the coming years. Said Hill:
"As we were designing Arkham, our confidence as a studio had begun to grow. After the release it grew even further. Now I’m really excited, because, as a developer, I look at our team and I don’t think the studio has hit its peak. I still think we have places to go.
I’ve seen us grow as a company – and I mean in terms of confidence and ability – and I genuinely can see us grow further still. I don’t think Arkham Asylum is going to be the best game we make. We’re growing and developing as a company all the time."
Hill mentioned Arkham Asylum's review scores as fuel for the team's confidence, which means they plan to be "just as daring" in future projects. Does anyone else think they should tackle Superman when they're done with Batman? They've already said that Arkham City would be the last Batman-based game they do, so...how's about giving us the first great Superman game? Just do it.
