Batman: Arkham City Writer, Paul Dini, Isn’t Working On Any More Arkham Games

Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City writer, Paul Dini, says he isn’t working on any more Batman: Arkham games—at least, not at the moment.


Dini made the following tweet this past week: “Kinda hoped I’d be doing another Arkham game in London during the Olympics. Esp, as I had a good source for tx. Ah, well.”


Fans and Twitter followers soon followed up with Dini and asked if he really wasn’t working on another Batman: Arkham title, in reply to which he clarified that he wasn’t, but that he would potentially be interested in writing a third, as he “loved writing the first two”.


So, if Dini isn’t working on another Batman: Arkham game, is he working on the rumoured Silver Age Batman game instead? The answer is no. In reply to a fan on Twitter, Dini stated: “I didn’t know about it until I read about it, so we’re even.”


Throughout the course of his writing career, Dini has made significant contributions to the Batman universe. He was the writer and a producer on Batman: The Animated Series, and later on Batman Beyond. Dini also created the Harley Quinn character for the animated series, and her popularity led to her being included in the DC comic universe as well.

    Wow, why? Who could replace him?
    The man practically created cartoon’s Batman as he’s known from the 90’s and onwards.
    “The” guy you’d want writing a Batman game, but maybe the powers that be decided to give the games a chance to have a different approach.

    Didn’t he recently jump ship to Marvel? He’s working on that new Spiderman cartoon. This sucks though, they can’t make an Arkham game without him imo.

    I love Dini and his Batman work, but I’m interested to see how a Batman game from Rocksteady turns out without his writing. There are numerous other writers who can get Bats down. So long as Kevin Conroy comes back, I’m good.

    Perhaps they upped the Ante and got Frank Miller to write the next one?

      I don’t know if I would look forward to, or fear the train-wreck that would ensue if that was teh case.
