BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT Creators Were Allegedly Working on All-New SUPERMAN Video Game

Considering that Rocksteady Studios' latest video game — the award-winning Batman: Arkham Knight — made its debut in June 2015, it's quite surprising that we still know next to nothing about the London-based developer's upcoming projects. Although Rocksteady's future games remain a big mystery, Geeks WorldWide's James Sigfield has revealed some new details on one of the company's scrapped projects.

According to Sigfield's latest report, he has heard from multiple sources that Rocksteady had actually tried to get a Superman game off the ground in 2015. Apparently, the team pitched the title to WB Games execs after the studio had finished the works on Arkham Knight, but the management passed on the project.

Quite interestingly, Rocksteady's original take on the beloved Superman universe would feature destructible environments, powered by the technology used in Arkham Knight (mostly its Batmobile-heavy sections).

Unfortunately, it's safe to say that the producers are not planning to greenlight said Superman title anytime soon, as Rocksteady is reportedly busy developing a reboot of its Batman: Arkham game series.
