FEATURED VOXPOP maca2kx Metal Gear Solid was a watershed moment in gaming for me. The graphics, at the time, were phenomenal; the story was winding and engaging; the gameplay was sharp and not above breaking the fourth wall when appropriate. It’s one of the few titles where the number of times I’ve...

Paul Dini Not Available For Next Batman Game

Posted on Monday, August 6 @ 11:50:10 Eastern by Keri_Honea

There has been nothing official in the wind about Warner Bros. and Rocksteady developing another Batman game, but just in case they have been thinking about, writer Paul Dini won't be contributing.

Dini, the award-winning comic writer and writer for Batman: The Animated Series as well as both Arkham games, announced on Twitter that he is not working on another Arkham game. After what must have been a flurry of questions, he later wrote a blog post explaining his situation.

The last talk I had with Warner Interactive about future games was while I was doing promotion for Arkham City last September. Naturally as there was such a rush of interest about Arkham City, everyone was asking me about a third game, and frankly, I had been wondering about that myself.

When I asked about the possibility of working on a third game I was told that as Rocksteady had just finished wrapping the second one, it would be a while before everyone was ready to sit down and discuss future plans. That said, it was intimated that for future games, Warner and Rocksteady might not be looking as much to freelance writers, the message being, that if had something else interesting coming my way, I might want to take it.

He later explained that after Rocksteady annouced the Harley Quinn DLC and the buzz about a possible Arkham prequel, he assumed that the deveoper and publisher had already hired writers and, therefore, went on to find other work. As a result, he is booked up until 2013 at the earliest. If Rocksteady really hadn't filled the writing shoes and was hoping Dini would work on a future Batman game with them, then this is clearly a case of the right hand being unaware of the left.

This is great for Paul Dini, of course, but as a fan of his writing, it saddens me a little that he won't be able to work on a future Arkham game any time soon. In many ways, I hope that Rocksteady was not planning on a future title just yet.
