According to a supposed leak on 4Chan, Rocksteady might be preparing to unveil their next project: a Superman game akin to their Batman: Arkham series. The leaker suggests that the game will be revealed as the cover story in the next edition of Game Informer magazine.

The leaker also believes that the game’s official announcement will take place during Microsoft’s E3 conference (which is set to take place on Sunday, June 10) and Xbox One X enhanced gameplay will be shown.

According to the leaker’s original post, the game will feature the following:

  • Unreal Engine 4
  • An open-world Metropolis (three times the size of Arkham Knight’s Gotham)
  • Flight integrated into the fight mechanics
  • Brainiac as the main villain
  • No gameplay as Clark Kent
  • Superman’s powers are slightly nerfed
  • Set in the Arkhamverse
  • Semi-destructible environments
  • Lots of Easter eggs related to Superman lore and the stories of the Arkham games

Of course, all of this should be taken with a grain of salt, seeing as how these announcements aren’t even close to being official. In addition, the leaker originally suggested that the game would be announced several weeks before E3 and we are now less than two weeks away from the event. Plus, this would not be the first time Rocksteady/Superman rumors have lead nowhere.

That being said, Warner Bros. (Rocksteady’s parent company) has been gearing up for a fairly big E3 this year. In addition, Superman is a universally-familiar property and given the success of the Arkham games, a Superman title is almost certainly something those at Rocksteady have at least discussed.

For now, however, we’ll simply have to wait until E3 to see what Rocksteady and/or Warner Bros. have in store for us.
