While RockSteady Games has given up on more entries in the “Batman: Arkham” video game franchise, there’s long been rumor that WB Games is working on a new Batman game title.
The company, which created the third entry in the series “Batman: Arkham Origins,” is rumored to be either working on a fifth game, or a spin-off which puts the focus on Damian Wayne.
Those rumors have now been shot down to some extent as Kevin Conroy, the actor who is the voice of Batman in many places from the iconic 1990s animated series to most of the other ‘Arkham’ games, told Wizard World Nashville on the weekend that there’s currently nothing in development:
“I can’t believe that they’re not going to do another one, but they’re not. 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 was replaced by Roger Craig Smith in ‘Arkham Origins’ so the possibility is that he may be out of the loop, but it’s unlikely. The possibility of a great new “Batman” game hitting anytime in the next few years seems slim.
