Arkham Origins Dev Talks About Taking Over From Rocksteady

"We’re standing on the shoulders of giants" says Warner Bros. Montreal.

Members of the Warner Bros. Montreal team have spoken about the "challenge of following Rocksteady" saying "we're standing on the shoulders of giants." 

The studio's Creative Director, Eric Holmes, told GameInformer the Batman Arkham Origins developer is fully aware that  "the challenge for us, coming in after Rocksteady, is to do something which hasn't been done.

"This is the story of the first time Batman meets certain characters that are very important to him and defines his relationships, which ultimately starts to define him.

"Nobody's harsher critics about this game than we are and we definitely want it to stand up to the Arkham legacy," Holmes added.

Senior producer Ben Mattes commented "We are very aware of the fact we are standing on the shoulders of giants. We are playing in the space of some of the most critically acclaimed games of all time."
