Wait... Is Rocksteady’s Next Game Suicide Squad?!

Can anyone keep track of these rumours?

It's been a while since we last heard anything on the state of Rocksteady's next game. For the past year, focus has been almost entirely on WB Montreal and their as-of-yet unannounced Batman: Arkham reboot, however a new rumour courtesy of Kinda Funny Games Daily host, Imran Khan, has suggested Rocksteady is currently hard at work on a Suicide Squad project.

Now, I know what you're thinking: wasn't it WB Montreal that was working on a Suicide Squad game a few years ago that eventually got cancelled? Well, that is true, and reliable reports have confirmed this was in production at one point, but it's not inconceivable that the publisher simply thought the team wasn't the right fit for what they wanted out of this band of anti-heroes.

Though Khan does concede that he heard this information a few years ago, it does align with other rumours that circulated last August. Back then, two separate sources claimed that Rocksteady were indeed creating a title based on the Suicide Squad, but they were mostly brushed off. It coming up again now, however, seems to bolster those previous claims.


Though little else was revealed, Khan also suggested the game would adopt a 'games as service' model, something which has also long been rumoured.

It was also confirmed that WB Games will be showing up at DC's FanDome event in August - essentially one big DC digital celebration promising new reveals and announcements - so expect to hear something official then.
