BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT Studio Is Reportedly Working on SUICIDE SQUAD VS. JUSTICE LEAGUE Game
The fact that Rocksteady Studios — the renowned makes of the Batman: Arkham trilogy — has not released a single new project since the launch of Batman: Arkham Knight in June 2015 is cause for concern for many fans of the studio. Thankfully, it seems that Rocksteady's next big thing will be announced in the near future.
According to Eurogamer's Tom Phillips, the London-based developer's all-new project won't be a Batman game, instead shedding a light on the Suicide Squad, one of DC's most famous superhero (villain?) teams.
That's right, Rocksteady is reportedly developing its first video game starring multiple playable characters, possibly allowing the player to take on the role of Harley Quinn, King Shark, and other criminal geniuses from the world of DC (as a reminder, James Gunn's The Suicide Squad is coming to theaters next August).
Although nothing has been officially confirmed just yet, there's a rather big chance that the rumoured game will be titled Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League (at least that's the domain WB. Games recently registered), suggesting that Rocksteady's next title will pit the infamous Squad against the beloved Justice League team, bringing Joshua Williamson's Justice League vs. Suicide Squad comic book run from 2017 to (digital) life.
Quite interestingly, the publisher has also decided to register the GothamKnightsGame.com domain, leading to speculation that Gotham Knights is the name of the new Batman game from WB. Games Montreal, the makers of Batman: Arkham Origins who allegedly used to be working on Superman and Suicide Squad games (although some believe that the cancelled Superman game was being developed at Rocksteady).
Sadly, WB. had not announced any plans to release a Suicide Squad video game at the time of this writing.
