Rumored Superman Rocksteady Game (Probably) Isn't Happening

Superman DCAU Mullet

Recently, an anonymous poster on 4chan claimed that Rocksteady Studios was working on a Superman video game and that the game would be the cover story for next week's issue of Game Informer. However, Andrew Reiner -- the magazine's executive editor -- has confirmed via Twitter that the unannounced game won't appear on the next issue's cover.

"Hahahaha," Reiner wrote in response to a question about whether or not the magazine's next cover would reveal the game. He then explicitly said that the magazine would not feature the character and that the next cover won't even be Rocksteady related.

Rocksteady Studios is responsible for the beloved Batman: Arkham series, which encompasses 2009's Arkham Asylum, 2011's Arkham City and 2015's Arkham Knight. Those games feature voice talent from Batman: The Animated Series and a much-praised combat system. In October, Rocksteady Studios' head of marketing Gaz Deaves said that the studio was working on a mind blowing project. While it's still not clear what that project is, it may still end up being a Superman game, though at this point nothing definite is known.

There have been a number of Superman games released over the years, many of which are considered poor quality. A lot of critics and fans consider 1999's Superman: The New Superman Adventures, also known as Superman 64, one of the worst games of all-time. In 2015, WB Games Montreal, who made 2013's Batman: Arkham Origins, was rumored to be working on a game starring the Man of Steel.

The hero is a playable character in NetherRealm Studios' Injustice franchise.
