​Listing Created For Rocksteady Studios' Rumoured Superman Game

​Listing Created For Rocksteady Studios' Rumoured Superman Game

Back in September, we reported that London-based developer Rocksteady Studios was hiring for its next AAA title.

Fans of Rocksteady's brilliant Batman: Arkham series - which recently launched as an Xbox One X enhanced collection - predicted it to be another superhero game, following months of rumours and speculation.

Said rumours, in particular, pointed to the first Rocksteady Superman game. And just a few weeks later, it looks like their predictions were absolutely spot on.

As noticed by a ResetEra user, Game System Requirements - a video game community and database site - has posted a listing for Superman: World's Finest, with Rocksteady Studios named as its developer.

Est1992, the user who spotted Rocksteady's as-yet (officially) unannounced title, explained how he searched the website for other rumoured games, like GTA VI, Half Life 3, and Bloodborne 2, for comparison's sake. Perhaps Superman was just a punt? But no, none of those other much-wanted but so-far-nonexistent games were listed.

They also noted that the site's FAQs says, in short, that users "can't just post whatever games you want on there," so it's likely an in-the-know moderator, or possibly a staffer at Rocksteady, who uploaded it. Or leaked it, depending on your perspective on such things.

A Superman fan replied to the ResetEra post, explaining how Superman: World's Finest is a nod to a popular comic series with the same name. Its story centres around Superman, Batman and Robin.

This would link nicely with the initial Superman Rocksteady leak from June 2018, which has since been deleted from 4chan. It told of an open-world Superman title featuring Batman and Robin as optional playable characters.

It's also worth mentioning that Game System Requirements created a similar listing for Devil May Cry 5 last year, almost a month before Capcom officially announced it. For those who need a little more convincing.

Now that the Spider-Man hype is over, I'm more than ready for another superhero game. What about you?

Would you like to see a new Superman game? Could it be better than the Batman: Arkham series? Or would you prefer a new Arkham instalment? Make sure you let us know.
