If you’re a gamer and you like super heroes, you’ve probably heard of the Batman Arkham games. Developer Rockseady put together a trilogy of Batman games that have redefined what the genre can be. They’ve proven that not every super hero game needs to be Superman 64. However, WB Montreal, the team behind what many consider to be the odd duck in the series of Arkham games, Arkham Origins, might be taking on the Man of Steel to hopefully bring some much needed quality to Superman’s virtual library.
The news breaks out of an experience update on career site LinkedIn. Until recently, freelance animator Kieran Turan had a suspicious listing on his account. “Troubleshooting and repair of the 3D facial rig for the upcoming “Superman” videogame title for GameOn Audio.” The listing under his “Experience” section has since been taken down, but Z-Giochi was able to snag a screen grab. Proving, once again, nothing is ever gone from the internet. Turan has worked on many 3D facial rigs for GameOn Audio in the past, including WB Montreal’s Batman Arkham Origins, a company that has been rumored for a while now to be working on a Superman game.
Although nothing is confirmed, it’s looking more and more like fans of the Big Blue Boy Scout might be getting another opportunity to take control of the last son of Krypton. And here’s hoping it’s set in the Arkham Universe!
