How the hell would you have a multiplayer Batman game with thousands of Batmans running around the same city? Give your head a shake.
Yeah, but it doesn't fit the combat style Rocksteady created. Or any of the gameplay Rocksteady created.
They can do a Batman MMO, whatever, Rockstead (who is owned by WB) will almost definitely not be involved.
And, anyway, "we're going to do a multiplayer game" doesn't seem like a very good excuse. WB is doing like 14 different Batman movies right now, I don't think they'd have much of an issue doing multiple Batman games. They own the IP. They own Rocksteady. Doing another Arkham would be fairly low risk/capital yet high reward.
I think, for once, they're acknowledging people are burnt out on the concept, one of the games wasn't well received, and sales had been dwindling. If each entry had been equally well received and sold equally well we'd be getting a fifth.
