If recent job postings are any indication, it appears that Rocksteady is readying another round of downloadable content for its smash hit Batman: Arkham Asylum.
British gaming site Computer and Videogames reports that it received a position inquiry that asked, “Want to work on DLC for Batman: Arkham Asylum in London? Drop [us] a line.” This, coupled with a job posting a few months back on Rocksteady’s site for a lead artist to work on DLC for a “AAA title on the next generation platforms,” seems like a strong indication that bonus content for the game is certainly in the works.
Given that all we really know about Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 is a bunch of leaks about the game’s villains, and the game is rumored to be releasing in early 2011, it would be surprising if the game’s developers were already hard at work on downloadable content for the sequel. It’s much more likely that with Arkham Asylum 2 potentially getting pushed back, Eidos and Rocksteady have some time to kill. Plus, it will give them a chance to perhaps test out ideas for things they might want to include in the much anticipated sequel.
I poked Eidos about this, so I'll let you know if I hear anything.
