Warner Bros. Acquires ‘Arkham Asylum’ Game Company
“Batman: Arkham Asylum” is not just one of the best comic book video games of all time, it’s straight up one of the best games ever. You know this. I know this. Apparently, Warner Bros. knows this, too.
The WB has acquired a majority stake in Rocksteady Studios, the London-based developers of “Arkham Asylum,” according to The Wall Street Journal. The terms of the purchase aren’t currently known, but this much is clear – Warners wants more “Arkham Asylum,” and that’s fine by me.
“Rocksteady clearly has the talent, expertise and technology to make great games and we are fortunate to continue working closely with them as we further expand our games portfolio,” said Josh Berger, the president and managing director for Warner Bros. UK.
A second “Arkham Asylum” installment is already in development. I wonder what other DC Comics properties Rocksteady will focus on now? Personally, I feel like they’d kick some serious butt on a “Swamp Thing” game, but why don’t you tell us – which characters would you like to see them work on next?
