A breeze of sensation is blowing through social media: According to a tweet from Roger Craig Smith, there is a possibility that a sequel to Batman: Arkham Knight is currently in development. But not only the tweet from Smith suggests this assumption, but the subsequent communication with a “companion”.


The Batman: Arkham franchise could indeed continue. This assumption suggests tweets from Roger Craig Smith and Ryan Galletta, who talked on the short message platform about a "nonexistent, secret project". If you include their professional backgrounds to the statements of the two, it becomes clear that the probability is high that a sequel to Batman: Arkham Knight could be realized in the near future.

"Soon the cat will be let out of the bag"

Rumors of a successor to Batman: Arkham Knight have been around for a long time, but there are no indications of actual confirmation. Now a short conversation between Roger Craig Smith, Ryan Galletta and Gary Miereanu has caused an earthquake of anticipation among fans who want a new part from the Batman franchise.

Several pieces of evidence suggest that a successor is in the works: Roger Craig Smith is directly linked to the Batman franchise. As a voice actor, he has already set Batman to music in Arkham: Origins. A few days ago he had already published that ironic tweet in which he - after a series of negations - spoke of not working on a video game.

He couldn't talk about it anyway, so as not to violate an NDA on a project that actually doesn't exist. He didn't have to either, because new statements from Ryan Galletta and Gary Miereanu brought the rumor boiler to overflowing. As a writer, Galletta had previously worked on Arkham: Origins, the project that Smith was instrumental in. He replied on Twitter that he “can't talk about the secret, nonexistent project we're working on. d. Red: Smith and Galletta] don't work together ”.

The fact that both seem to be going the same way again makes vague assumptions at least a little more concrete. The announcement of a successor to Batman: Arkham Knight is also more likely that Warner's Gary Miereanu speaks out: “Your press officer thanks you,” he introduces. Then: "And promise that we will soon let the cat out of the bag."

Even if it all sounds very cryptic, the mere fact that Ryan Galletta is involved in the secret project almost proves that it will be a video game. As an author, he specializes in this. Galletta worked on Company of Heroes and Need for Speed, among others. While it could basically be any video game, Warner Bros. Entertainment holds the top license to Batman.

The combination of all the evidence suggests that a successor to Batman: Arkham Knight is not only in the works, but that the project status is so advanced that more information could be published "soon".

According to a tweet from Sefton Hill, the Rocksteady development studio is “working hard on the next big project”. The game producer announced this in the run-up to E3, which Rocksteady had decided not to participate in. While this remains a secret of what the team is actually working on, given the recent tweets, it could be a new part of the Batman franchise.
