After the critical and financial success that was Batman: Arkham Asylum, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has taken the necessary steps to acquire Rocksteady Games.
DC Comics, as many know, is a Time Warner company. This grants Warner Bros. and their parent company ownership of some of our favorite heroes. Batman, Superman, Flash, The Green Lantern — they are all under the protective wing of Time Warner.
Today Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has finalized the acquisition of one of the only development studios to ever produce a successful super hero game. Rocksteady is now, too, a Time Warner Company.
In the official press release Rocksteady’s Sefton Hill had this to say about the new owners, “The Rocksteady team is very much looking forward to creating more great games based on the widely recognized Warner Bros. brands like Batman.”
With the wild success of their first outing in the comic book realm, I personally can’t wait to see what’s in store for Batman: AA‘s sequel and any future Rocksteady games.
