Rocksteady Studios impressed the world with its first two Batman adaptations, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Last year’s installment, Arkham Origins was left to an internal studios at publisher Warner Brothers. Well Rocksteady is returning to the helm, to much rejoicing by loyal gamers. Batman: Arkham Knight will conclude the Arkham series and Rocksteady is looking to go out with a bang.
