Warner Bros. Buy Rocksteady Studios


If you had to ask who Rocksteady Studios are, then you could have missed out on one of the best games this past year and… well… ever.

Rocksteady are one of the most promising and talented developer studios who developed the multi-award winning title – Batman Arkham Asylum. The studio raked in the awards at the VGA’s, BAFTAS and were nominated for three Game Developer Choice Awards. This was no surprise to anyone who played the game.

Warner Bros. has now purchased a majority stake in Rocksteady Studios, and what a purchase that was. I know I speak for bazillions of gamers when I say that we will purchase the next Rocksteady title even it is based on “The Smurfs”.

Warner apparently did “lend a hand” on the first Batman and we know they are publishing the sequel, but this secures what should be a very lucrative partnership for the giant publishers. And what it means to us gamers is that Rocksteady will have huge budgets for development. So I am all for it.

Rocksteady’s Sefton Hill said regarding deal:

The Rocksteady team is very much looking forward to creating more great games based on widely recognized Warner Bros. brands like Batman.
