A Suicide Squad game is reportedly in the works at Rocksteady, the UK based studio responsible for the Batman: Arkham series.
A Suicide Squad game is reportedly being developed by Batman: Arkham series creators, Rocksteady. This was first reported by Imran Khan, a former Game Informer Editor who can now be seen on the Kinda Funny Games podcast giving his insights on the latest games and occasionally providing insider information.
Khan stated that he had heard Rocksteady was working on a Suicide Squad game a number of years ago. Although, he did make it clear this was just something he had heard and that a lot can change with video games that are in development.
He also said that there’s a strong possibility that it could be a “games-as-a-service” type-game that evolves and changes over time, similar to Fortnite and Call of Duty: Warzone. This type of game is extremely popular right now (largely in part to them being free to play).
This matches previous reports that stated Rocksteady’s next project would be this type of game. It’s worth pointing out that there are multiple conflicting reports on what property the studio is currently working on. Some of the other potential games previously mentioned include; Justice League, Red Hood and Superman.
Pretty much every rumour involving these titles has reported that Rocksteady’s next game will be a “games-as-a-service” title. This would be a first for Rocksteady having never released a game of this nature before, but it would also make sense them taking advantage of the current trend.
All of this being said, we would like to stress that all of this shouldn’t be taken as gospel as this information could be outdated and anything could have changed over time. But there are a large number of reports pointing to a Rocksteady “games-as-a-service” type game.
What we do know is Rocksteady have been working on something since 2015 when they released their most recent game Batman: Arkham Knight and it’s pretty much guaranteed it will be related to a DC Comics property.
If this is the case then we will hear about it on August 22 during the DC FanDome virtual event which is set to feature news and announcement on all upcoming DC content including video games.
