Official: Rocksteady Is Making A Suicide Squad Game

Suicide Squad Fans Get Excited for Rocksteady’s New Game

The makers of the Batman Arkham games at Rocksteady Studios have finally officially teased their next project: a Suicide Squad game.

It’s been five years since Arkham Knight came out, and, ever since then, people have wondered what the hell Rocksteady Studios has been up to. For a long time many assumed it might be a Superman game or maybe even another Batman game. Now the rumors and speculation can finally end:

Last month, Eurogamer reported on a series of new internet domains like “SuicideSquadKillTheJusticeLeague.com” that had apparently been registered by a company affiliated with Warner Bros. There was also a domain for “gothamknightsgame.com,” which, according to Eurogamer, is a separate game being developed by Warner Bros. Montreal, the studio behind Arkham Origins.

Based on the “KillTheJusticeLeague” domain and the bullseye on the back of Superman’s head, it seems like a pretty good guess that this time Rocksteady is making a DC game from the villains’ point of view. Hopefully it takes after things like the excellent Secret Six crossover run and not 2016’s Suicide Squad movie.

Warner Bros. announced last month that it would be holding a virtual fan event called DC FanDome on August 22 at 1:00 p.m. ET. Rocksteady’s tweet it sounds indicates we’ll learn more about Suicide Squad and get the full breakdown on what the studio has been making.

Reactions to the Suicide Squad game announcement came quickly with most people just relieved to now know what the company responsible for the Arkham Batman games is working on. Some more rumors were tossed out there that attempted to piece together who might be in the game alongside guesses about what the gameplay will be like and if it’ll be multiplayer-focused or more geared towards single-player.

We won’t have to wait long to find out more about the Suicide Squad game though. Rocksteady Studios has confirmed it’ll have more to share on the new project on August 22nd during the DC FanDome event, so expect to hear something there. Until then, you can check out some of the first reactions and hopes from Suicide Squad fans below.
