Batman: Arkham Knight has earned an "M for Mature" rating from the ESRB, according to Rocksteady.
The studio's previous Batman games, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, both earned "T for Teen" ratings. Sefton Hill, founder of Rocksteady and game director on Arkham Knight, said the M rating surprised him because the team didn't specifically aim for it.
"From our point of view, we never wrote it or made it with a rating in mind. We never did that in the previous two games... We just felt that this is the story that we really wanted to tell."
An "M" rating can only mean one thing. A bigger, badder Batman game.
