Rocksteady: Arkham Asylum won’t “be our best work, we still have places to go”

Wednesday, 11th August 2010 16:30 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Rocksteady boss Sefton Hill has told Develop as far as it’s concerned, Batman: Arkham Asylum was just the beginning of things for the developer.

Hill reckons the studio still hasn’t “hit its peak” quite yet.

“As we were designing Arkham, our confidence as a studio had begun to grow,” he said. “After the release it grew even further. Now I’m really excited, because, as a developer, I look at our team and I don’t think the studio has hit its peak. I still think we have places to go.

“I’ve seen us grow as a company – and I mean in terms of confidence and ability – and I genuinely can see us grow further still. I don’t think Arkham Asylum is going to be the best game we make. We’re growing and developing as a company all the time.”

The studio’s currently working on Arkham Asylum’s follow-up, Arkham City, which was announced last week for a fall 2011 release on PS3, 360 and PC.

The first details from the game emerged yesterday.

    In an era where it’s fairly easy to feel disheartened about the state of gaming, with all manner of excessively high-budget disappointments, yearly rehashed sequelitis-suffering easy money brands, cut’n'paste mmo clones and ill-concieved party tricks dominating our chosen form of entertainment, Rocksteady please me and give me a glimmer of hope for the future. Thank you, Rocksteady. All is not lost.

    I simply can’t wait for Arkham City, all the new features sound awesome. No open world, but some fearures from it, sounds great. The fact that that secret room from AA hadn’t been found at all…and Rocksteady had to reveal it themselves is just damn awesome.
