It’s been reported that Rocksteady went to Warner Bros. to pitch a Superman video game after having made Batman: Arkham Knight, but they said no.
There was a lot of talk after Rocksteady released Arkham Knight about what they would do next.
I remember hearing rumours that they could be working on a Justice League game.
There were also people saying they were going to be making a Green Lantern Corps video game.
I also remember people saying Rocksteady wanted to make a Superman video game next, and that would have made sense.
It now turns out that rumour might have been true.
It’s been reported via James Sigfield on Twitter that Rocksteady actually pitched a Superman game to Warner Bros.
However, they ended up turning down the idea and that meant that Rocksteady weren’t able to make the Superman game they wanted.
Rocksteady wanted to make a Superman video game
Hearing from multiple sources that Rocksteady pitched a Superman game to WB as a follow up to Arkham Knight, and WB passed on the project.
Judging how similar this feels to the “New Gotham” section of Arkham Knight, this could be for that. pic.twitter.com/RKIE6ugKSP

Honestly, I think this is such a shame if it is true.
British video game developers have proven themselves to be excellent at making superhero video games.
They would have made an incredible Superman game if you ask me, but it looks like we’re going to have to wait a while longer for the Man of Steel game.
