2015 has actually been a fantastic year for Video Games. We've been gifted The Witcher 3, [Batman: Arkham Knight](tag:2683936), Bloodborne and [Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain](tag:2683985) is just around the corner. Rocksteady admirably delivered an extraordinary final chapter in the [Batman: Arkham Series](tag:2586475) with Arkham Knight. It was everything you could want from a Batman game and it featured one of the most satisfying stories I've played in recent years. But what's next?

Rocksteady came into the industry and slammed our preconceptions of what to expect from a superhero video game. We were gifted the opportunity to really become Batman and the game not only made that enjoyable, but brought a revolutionary new fighting system with it - one that a lot of other title's have borrowed since. We want more of their innovations and I wonder whether Warner Brothers will push them onto another DC character.

Is Another DC Superhero Game in Store for Rocksteady After Batman: Arkham Knight?

If you've played Batman: Arkham Knight you'll know that there's a lot more of DC in this game than just Batman and his villains. There are countless references to Superman, Metropolis and Hugo Strange throughout the course of Knight's campaign. Whether this is an insight into what's to come or Rocksteady simply having fun with the idea of [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870), we don't really know. But it's intriguing.

But just because Rocksteady made a great Batman game, that doesn't mean that they'll do justice to other heroes that haven't had a great video game to their name. The Superman games that I've played have always been terrible, but that could be down to the fact that he's just too powerful a character to have star in a game. I mean we have to die a lot!

Could Superman Be Next After Arkham Knight?

I'd love to see Rocksteady make a great Superman game! It'd be amazing to have uninhibited powers of flight. But there are so many other characters from the DC universe that Rocksteady could potentially create a game for. After all, we still have Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Nightwing, The Flash, Aquaman or even Shazam! All of these characters would make fantastic leads in their own game and I'd love to hear which one you'd like the most!

Rocksteady may also want to distance themselves from heroes following the Arkham series. Perhaps they don't want to be associated with that genre for the rest of their careers, maybe they'll come back with a brand new IP! Who knows? But I think we'd all love to see them do justice for another hero out there! But who would be your choice? Let us know in the comments below!


Which of these would you pick for Rocksteady's next game?
