In a recent interview with Playstation Blog, Warner Bros. Head Ames Kirshen says that the Batman franchise has an unlimited amount of possibilities the game series looking into the future. Stating..
“Batman is one of the cornerstone IPs for Warner Bros. With the Arkham series, we were finally able to realize the full potential of the character. We don’t have anything to talk about at this time [regarding future Batman games], but the possibilities are endless with a character as dynamic and beloved as Batman.”
Of course Kirshen added that the company makes sure that the “core essence” of the franchise is properly represented in every game. Saying..
“You have to understand and respect the core essence of the franchise, but you can’t be a slave to every single aspect of its history or continuity in translating it for the gaming medium. More importantly, you have to have the talent, vision, and passion from the development teams to make great games and treat them as they would an original IP. We’ve been blessed at WBIE with studios and talent such as Rocksteady, NetherRealm, and TT Games.”
