Although Arkham Knight serves as the last game in the Batman-related Arkham game series, game publisher Warner Bros. isn't completely done with Batman just yet.
In fact, it's likely that Warner Bros. plans on releasing a different series of Batman games in the future, although there is no official confirmation of that. However, in a recent interview with the PlayStation Blog, Ames Kirshen, vice president of product development for the DC Comics games at Warner Bros., said that when it comes to Batman, there is always room for more of the Caped Crusader.
"Batman is one of the cornerstone IPs for Warner Bros.," said Kirshen. "With the Arkham series, we were finally able to realize the full potential of the character."
Of course, that doesn't mean that Batman is the only DC Comics character worthy of a video game, but he is certainly the most popular character with comic book fans.
"When choosing what DC Entertainment IP we might focus on for any game, it boils down to honing in on the IPs that map the strongest, genre-wise, to what fans are interested in seeing and playing," said Kirshen. "From there, it's about getting the development studios with the strongest passion for those IPs to make the games."
Of course, there's no rush as Arkham Knight, the latest Warner Bros. Batman-related video game developed with Rocksteady Studios, is still relatively new, having just come out this summer. The console version of the game quickly gained critical acclaim and was highly lauded by players, many calling it one of the best Arkham games to date.
However, the PC version of the game suffered from a variety of problems, including frame rate issues, sound problems, stuttering, bugs, glitches and constant freezing. There were so many issues with the PC release of Arkham Knight that Warner Bros. temporarily took that version of the game off the market.
In spite of the problems with the PC version of the game, though, that still didn't stop Arkham Knight from becoming the fastest selling game of 2015 with 67 percent of copies sold on the PlayStation 4 and 33 percent of copies sold on the Xbox One.
The PC issues remained, though, and the game still hasn't seen a re-release with those problems fixed, although Warner Bros. promised recently that it would come soon.
