Rocksteady Studios will also be rolling out a patch that seeks to enhance the rain effects of the Arkham Knight game. As said by Gear Nuke, the rain downpour will become more prevalent. The fix is slated to arrive for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game next year and later this year for the PC version.

In related news, a report from Gamespot.com cited a NeoGaf user who, in turn, spotted a post from Rocksteady revealing the studio's next plan for the franchise.

According to the report, Rocksteady is currently on the lookout for lead and senior programmers who have a "proven track record as a team lead with experience on at least two successfully published multiplayer titles." Furthermore, the job posting specified that the chosen personnel will be managing "a growing team of network coders" which, as stipulated by Gamespot, strongly implies a multiplayer-focused project.

Taking hints from the details, it appears that Rocksteady and Warner Bros are seeking to expand the popular Batman game series into a multiplayer. However, it might particularly follow the "Batman: Arkham" series since Rocksteady head Sefton Hill already confirmed that "Arkham Knight" will be the last.

Stay tuned for more updates.
