It’s safe to say the Batman Arkham series of games has become pretty popular since Asylum was released in 2009. We were all a bit conflicted about Arkham Knight, but given the overall success of the series and the plethora of characters in the Batverse yet to be used, most people might expect a new installment is being worked on by Rocksteady Studios.
At the Wizard World Comic Con, voice actor and staple of the Batman Animated Series, Kevin Conroy had the following to say:
“You know, I can’t believe that they’re not going to do another one, but they’re not,” Conroy said. “Isn’t that amazing? They made literally billions of dollars on those games. But no, there’s no plan to do another one. Sorry.”
Conroy provided the voice for Batman in Arkham Asylum (2009), Arkham City (2011) and Arkham Knight (2015), but wasn’t involved in Arkham Origins in 2013. Given the reviews for that were less than favourable, it seems he made a smart decision. But his continuous involvement in the series under Rocksteady means that he would be in the know about future projects. This does not mean the gaming series if over, but just that we need to wait a little while longer before we get to explore Gotham once again.
