Batman Arkham developer Rocksteady has responded to fan comments on the company’s absence from this year’s E3.

The studio’s co-founder and creative director, Sefton Hill, acknowledged people’s disappointment and responded to fans on Twitter.

Hill begins:

“Hi all! I wanted to share a quick message from me and the Rocksteady team…

 

We know some of you were disappointed that we were not at E3 this year. The whole team has been reading your comments, and all of us here at Rocksteady really appreciate your passion for our next project.

 

Knowing how much it means to you keeps us inspired and energized to deliver a game that you will be proud of. We’ll share it with you as soon as it’s ready.”

Last October, Rocksteady’s marketing manager, Gaz Deaves, tweeted out telling people to be patient. He assured fans that the project was going to be a bit special:

“Be patient, fans. I know we’re not talking right now… but when we do, people are going to lose their minds. Can’t wait.”

There have been rumours circulating for some time that the game will be either a Wonder Woman or a Superman game. Considering the quality of Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy, this bodes very well for DC comics fans.
