Rocksteady is working on a "highly anticipated AAA title", job listing reveals

A highly-anticipated, next-gen title is in the works, one can gather from Rocksteady's careers listing. Still, the creators of Batman Arkham series give us no further details, and it's likely that a year will pass before we can learn more.

A Senior Animator candidate, for instance, should be “ready for the challenge of producing an AAA title on the next generation platforms.” This comes as no surprise, for “next-generation consoles” have been around for so long they kind of lost their “next” bit already.

Or perhaps we should be getting ready for a trip to Metropolis? Some rumors indicated that Rocksteady’s next big game would be set in the home of the Superman, rendering him a possible new great superhero of gaming, standing next to Batman and – more recently – Spider-Man. Whoever it is, we sure can’t wait to book the right ticket.
