Do you yearn for another Batman Arkham video game? If so, you’re in good company. According to his social media post, Kevin Conroy wishes Rocksteady would give us what we all want. If the voice of The Dark Knight himself wants to do another instalment, then please Rocksteady Studios, make it happen!
The Batman: Arkham franchise was a critical and commercial behemoth, immersing players in the world of Batman. The studio posted a tweet looking back at the last mainline Arkham game, Arkham Knight, writing, “Four years ago today, we launched Batman: Arkham Knight. To all our fans: thanks for Being the Batman with us,” to which Conroy replied, “But why stop there?!!”

Now, is this Conroy teasing a new game or just wishful thinking on our part? There have been many rumors circulating over the last few months regarding future releases from the franchise, with speculation a constant. Such is the impact of the series, the titular character from the Arkham Knight has even crossed over into the comic book world as part of the current Detective Comics run.
Conroy played Batman in the three main Arkham games that were developed by Rocksteady, along with multiple spinoff games. Arkham Origins, the only Arkham game developed by WB Games Montréal, featured Roger Craig Smith as the Dark Knight.
There have been countless rumors about the game series making a comeback, but officially, the Arkham series is done. Arkham Knight, which was chronologically the last part of the saga, ended with Bruce Wayne being outed as Batman and seemingly getting blown up along with Wayne Manor. The final addition of the series was Arkham VR, which utilized virtual reality technology and also featured Conroy in his classic role.
