Rocksteady Studios, the developers behind the critically-acclaimed Batman titles – Arkham Knight, Arkham City and Arkham Asylum might be working on a fresh title. The studio might be working on a new Justice League game, set to release next year.
The information comes from an industry insider(via 4chan), who has deliberately leaked some confidential details about the new title. The leaker disclaims their involvement and that the information solely comes from someone who is involved in the development of the game.
Here’s what they shared –
Justice League: Crisis, Justice League: New Crisis, Justice League: Infinite Crisis
Seems they haven’t settled on a title yet, but they have a new staple in Crisis. Kind of like how Arkham was to their Batman series.
Xbox Scarlett/PS5/PC. You’ll hear more details on Xbox’s new system later this year with a full reveal early 2019. PS5 will be announced in early 2019 as well.
Single Player/Co-op. You can switch between characters like in Arkham Knight. The campaign can be played both ways, but there’s also a different game mode catered to multiplayer.
Also, it’s GaaS, so expect a ton of DLC content. They’re gonna have something similar to Hitman with episodic DLC.
Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash(Pretty sure it’s Wally), Green Lantern(Hal), Cyborg, Aquaman.
Metropolis, Gotham, Keystone(why I said it’s probably Wally), more others through DLC.
Each city is a bit bigger than AK, and just as detailed.
Main big bad is Starro. As the episodic stuff rolls out you’ll see Brainiac and even Darkseid.
All the heroes are pretty early on in their careers. Batman’s still considered an urban legend to anyone outside of Gotham, Superman isn’t the “world protector” yet, and WW is still on Themyscira. Aquaman’s still in the sea, GL is in space, and Wally isn’t even a hero yet.
From what I hear, it plays just like the Arkham games, except more refined and “opened up”. Guessing that’s for the heroes that can fly and such.
A lot of the DLC will have new cities and new playable characters. Green Arrow, Hawkgirl, Martian Manhunter and probably a lot more.
They’re expecting this game to last for years, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this game ended up being like Destiny in the sense that it gets updated constantly.
The information has little to no credibility and we can’t say for sure if the stated are correct.
Interestingly, justiceleaguecrisis.com is registered by Warner Bros and has been recently renewed. So, that’s something.
On the other side of the story, Rocksteady has 17 job openings as of now and it seems they’re working on an extensive project. This throws some light on the verifiability of the leaked information.
ResetEra user est1992 posted a theory based on the leaked information. He said –
Not sure how legit this is, but something that was cool that was pointed out, is the supposed main villain of the game, Starro, has a pretty cool Easter Egg in Arkham Knight.
In the past Arkham games, Rocksteady has always alluded to their forthcoming game. In Asylum, they had a hidden room hinting to Arkham City. In Arkham City they had a barge with Scarecrow toxin hinting to Arkham Knight, and in Arkham Knight’s DLC, Batgirl: A Matter of Family, there’s a hidden room with Starro in a gigantic test tube.
For those who don’t know who Starro is, he’s the first major villain of the Justice League.
Here’s the Starro Easter Egg clip –
The leaked information also mentions a new Xbox console, to be revealed at Microsoft’s recently announced November X018 event.
Spiel Times has contacted Rocksteady regarding the same. We’ll be updating the story as soon as we have some concrete information.
