Following last month's rumors that Rocksteady Studios had begun working on a DC Comics title featuring Batman (and maybe the Justice League) set in the Silver Age
, fans of Batman: Arkham Asylum
and Batman: Arkham City
have been searching for whatever clues they can about the supposed 2014 release. For his part, longtime animation and comics scribe and writer for the first two games has at least cleared up that he won't be penning the story for the potential prequel/sequel on Twitter
Dini mentioned that he wouldn't be involved with the game offhand last week on Twitter
stating, "Kinda hoped I'd be doing another Arkham game in London during the Olympics. Esp, as I had a good source for tx. Ah, well."
The writer went on to clarify his lack of involvement with the game further by answering fan questions and mentioning that he found out about the next game by reading about it, same as his Twitter followers
Dini's potential departure from the Arkham
series could mark a shift in the direction Rocksteady is taking the Caped Crusader. It's even possible the next game won't be an Arkham
title at all at this point. Considering Mark Hamill
has been retired from his Joker voice role for awhile now, the next game could indeed have a distinctly fewer Batman: The Animated Series
flavors to it.
