Superman: World's Finest rumored to be Rocksteady's next game

If Superman: World's Finest exists, could we finally get a good Superman game?

It looks like Rocksteady's latest game could indeed be a Superman-centric game called Superman: World's Finest, if the rumors currently swirling around are to be believed.

The rumor mill has fired up once more thanks to a page for a game called Superman: World's Finest found on Game System Requirements, posted to ResetEra. It's a newer page, lists Rocksteady as the developer, but does not currently feature any additional information. We've heard this name before, thanks to a 4chan leak before E3 2018, where the leaker suggested the game would be an open world title. Supposedly, Batman, Superman, and Robin would be included as playable character with a world teeming with crime and optional objectives.

Of course, E3 came and went and nothing like that was ever introduced. The mere fact that this game's name has popped up on the site means nothing, however, as it could have been added in anticipation of the upcoming The Game Awards show in December in advance to get those sweet, sweet SEO hits. There will be 10 game reveals at The Game Awards this year, however, so it's possible we could very well hear something about this potential game, though it's best not to get your hopes up at this time. It's probably nothing, but it's still worth keeping an eye on.

Superman hasn't exactly had the best track record when it comes to video games, so this could potentially be the first decent one out there if it does indeed exist.

Meanwhile, Rocksteady has been working to ensure you have easy access to the games it's already released with the Batman: Arkham Collection, now available for Xbox One. It includes the "definitive editions" of each game from the Arkham Trilogy, including DLC in one handy package. If you haven't played through the games just yet, this is a great reason to do so.

      If it doesn't have the 80s classic "Can you read my mind?" then it's a hard pass for me.

      Actually, it's a hard pass in any case. You cannot make a fun Superman game.

      IMO, Superman is too strong a superhero to make a good action game. He could punch through mountains if he wanted to, or melt skulls with laser eyes or whatever. Why would he spend time trading blows with goons like Batman has to?

        Maybe that's how the game is, you get to play as superman, full powered. Just crushing dudes and buildings and everything in between.

        There was a Superman game, many years ago, that I gather didn't give Superman a health bar. Instead it gave the city a health bar.
