We’ve already covered the rumours surrounding developer Rocksteady’s next project, with many believing it might be a new Superman game. Well, new rumours seem to indicate that this is indeed the case and that an announcement might be just around the corner.
The latest rumours surrounding Rocksteady’s next project stems from a post on 4chan, which naturally means that it should be taken with a grain of salt.
The post alleges that Rocksteady will be unveiling their Superman game prior to this year’s E3 (June 12-14). The anonymous poster also included a few short details regarding the project, including that it will be using Unreal Engine 4 and that it will take place in an open world Metropolis. It is also said that the game will include semi-destructive environments and, surprisingly, is set in the Arkhamverse (could this mean we’ll see Batman popping in to say hi?).
Other details include that the combat system will seamlessly integrate flying mechanics and that the game’s big bad will be non-other than Brainiac. Now, while Brainiac is slated to be the main villain, knowing Rocksteady (should the rumours prove true), there should be various other (more known and lesser known) villains making appearances.
Again, these are just rumours. However, as history has shown, where there’s smoke there usually is a fire. And, in this case, we are hoping that this rings true. Rocksteady revolutionised the Superhero game genre with the Arkham series and we are really hoping they do the same for Supes, especially since his game track record has been a left lacking in many (most) respects.
We’ve already covered what we would like to see in the next Superman game. What would you like to see?
