Rocksteady’s Next Batman Video Game Will Be Sans Paul Dini Script

Following last month’s rumors that Rocksteady Studios had begun working on a DC Comics title featuring Batman (and maybe the Justice League) set in the Silver Age, fans of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City have been searching for whatever clues they can about the supposed 2014 release. For his part, longtime animation and comics scribe and writer for the first two games has at least cleared up that he won’t be penning the story for the potential prequel/sequel on Twitter.Dini mentioned that he wouldn’t be involved with the game offhand last week on Twitter stating, “Kinda hoped I’d be doing another Arkham game in London during the Olympics. Esp, as I had a good source for tx. Ah, well.”

The writer went on to clarify his lack of involvement with the game further by answering fan questions and mentioning that he found out about the next game by reading about it, same as his Twitter followers.

Dini’s potential departure from the Arkham series could mark a shift in the direction Rocksteady is taking the Caped Crusader. It’s even possible the next game won’t be an Arkham title at all at this point. Considering Mark Hamill has been retired from his Joker voice role for awhile now, the next game could indeed have a distinctly fewer Batman: The Animated Series flavors to it.
