Batman: Arkham Knight Developer Rocksteady Studios is Skipping E3 2019
Rocksteady Studios Co-Founder Sefton Hill has confirmed that the Warner Bros. subsidiary won't be revealing their new game at E3 2019.
Nearly four years have passed since Batman: Arkham Knight, the last major console release from Rocksteady Studios. As such, fans of the Batman: Arkham trilogy are eagerly awaiting whatever the British Studio is doing next and want them to announce it soon. Unfortunately, just as he did with The Game Awards, Rocksteady Studios Co-Founder and Game Director Sefton Hill has confirmed that the Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment subsidiary’s upcoming unannounced game will not be at E3 2019.
Hi all! A number of you have asked so we wanted to let you all know up front that @Rocksteadygames won’t be showing at E3 this year. We’ll be watching as fans but remaining in London, hard at work on our next big project. Enjoy the show!

As of now, the next title from Rocksteady Studios is still shrouded in mystery. There have been a lot of rumors of the game possibly focusing on the Justice League or being a “games as a service” title, but most of these claims don’t have much weight as of yet. Hopefully, Rocksteady Studios will spill the beans on what is coming next from them soon as their announcements on skipping events are starting to get repetitive.
Despite that, there is some weird sense of consolation in knowing that a title will not be appearing at E3 among the flurry of announcements happening over the next week. Rocksteady Studios is not the only major developer to skip E3 either. Obviously, the announcement of Sony’s absence shocked many last year; lately, we have also learned that Skull & Bones, Beyond Good and Evil 2, and 2019’s Need for Speed game will not be in the news cycle over the next weekend as well.
As a gigantic fan of all the Arkham games, I am eagerly awaiting whatever Rocksteady Studios has in store for us. As such, you can be sure that DualShockers will let you know as soon as their new game is revealed. Currently, no major games from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have been announced yet despite the fact that the publisher has a large booth at the show so we can hopefully expect the publisher to announce something in the coming days.
