No More Arkham Games?

Batman News has word from Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy saying Warner Bros. has no plans for further games in their Batman/Arkham series (thanks Dark Horizons via Ant. This is not definitive, since they are not obligated to keep him apprised of their plans, so take it as you will. They offer a video of him on a panel responding to a question about the future of the series, where he explains:
“I can’t believe that they’re not going to do another one, but they’re not. Isn’t that amazing?,” Conroy told a fan at Wizard World Nashville over the weekend. “They made literally billions of dollars on those games, but no, there’s no plan to do another one. Sorry.”

How the hell would you have a multiplayer Batman game with thousands of Batmans running around the same city? Give your head a shake.
Asymmetric. Many people playing as villains. One Batman. Holy profits, Batman!

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.
