Apparently, award-winning comic book writer Paul Dini won’t be contributing his talents towards the next Rocksteady game.
Dini, who worked on the previous two installments Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City will not be back for the third title in the franchise. He stated on twitter that he would not be working on another Arkham game. He later wrote a post on his blog that explained everything.
“The last talk I had with Warner Interactive about future games was while I was doing promotion for Arkham City last September. Naturally as there was such a rush of interest about Arkham City, everyone was asking me about a third game, and frankly, I had been wondering about that myself.”
“When I asked about the possibility of working on a third game I was told that as Rocksteady had just finished wrapping the second one, it would be a while before everyone was ready to sit down and discuss future plans. That said, it was intimated that for future games, Warner and Rocksteady might not be looking as much to freelance writers, the message being, that if had something else interesting coming my way, I might want to take it.”
He went on to explain that after Harley Quinn’s Revenge and the rumored Justice League were announced, he figured that Warner Bros. had already filled their writer needs and he decided to find other work. Due to the new projects, he won’t be able to take on any new projects until 2013.
Dini then stated “It was fun working with Warners and Rocksteady on the first two Arkham games and I am grateful to them both for a tremendous experience. Rocksteady has a great crew of artists and storytellers, and it was exciting and enlightening for me to be part of that team. If we wind up working together again at some point, that would be cool, too.”
