With the help of its new corporate parent, Rocksteady Studios is looking like it will get a whole lot… Rocksteadier.
The developer of the Arkham Asylum game has, perhaps to no one’s surprise, been snapped up by none other than Time Warner Inc., who now has a controlling share of the London-based developer. This comes after Warners’ purchase of Midway Games for $33 million.
“Rocksteady clearly has the talent, expertise and technology to make great games and we are fortunate to continue working closely with them as we further expand our games portfolio,” Josh Berger, president and managing director for Warner Bros. UK, told the Wall Street Journal.
GameDaily has reported that what’s particularly interesting about this is that Rocksteady had only come out with one game prior to Arkham Asylum — the unimpressive Urban Chaos: Riot Response. Rocksteady has said there is a sequel to Arkham Asylum on the way, but there’s no word on plot details or a prospective date.
