MMORPG.com Lead Writer Bill Murphy recently had the opportunity to attend a roundtable discussion between DC Universe Online developers and several members of the media. The team was ready and able to tackle a wide-variety of topics including some more controversial ones such as the departure of Chris Cao, the seeming 'bat' fixation of the team and when several key issues and bug would finally get resolved. Check out Bill's report on the DCUO Developer Roundtable.
Are you guys Bat-crazy?
The next question came from Lucas of PC Gamer, and he asked whether it was intentional for the devs to focus so much on Batman in the first few updates. Jens came out and said, that well… yes, actually. Since the first updates were all about the Batcave, they wanted to stylistically keep it in the same realm. As new locations are explored (maybe Superman, if the last Blur trailer is any hint) new villains and characters will get focues on. E3 is when they plan on showing a lot of the new content on the horizon and the focus on new characters. We’ll still see Batman’s rogue gallery folks, but they’ll be more in the background. Apparently this also means more Legends PvP characters will step out of the Batman realm too.
