Batman: Arkham series developer Rocksteady has announced that it is working on a Suicide Squad video game, and will announce further details on August 22 as part of DC FanDome, DC comics’ digital fan event.

A Suicide Squad game was first considered a possibility following the end of Batman: Arkham Origins – developed by WB Games Montreal – which featured a post-credits scene in which Deathstroke is asked by Amanda Waller to join the Suicide Squad. In the years since Rocksteady shipped Batman: Arkham Knight, there have been rumours suggesting the studio has been working on a Suicide Squad game, but no official word from the development team or publisher WB Games.
Those rumours arose once again last month, with the suggestion that the game’s full name may be “Suicide Squad Kill The Justice League”, although the poster art featured in the above Tweet just says Suicide Squad. The logo, however, is arranged as a crosshair over Superman’s head, so it certainly looks like the Squad have it out for the JL. Now that’s a super smash melee I’d like to play out in a video game.
No more details have been revealed as part of the tweet, but we’ll likely find out much more at DC FanDome on August 22. WB Games are already known to be showing off things as part of the event, but it’s unclear if Suicide Squad is the only game being revealed, or if it’s part of a number of announcements from the publisher.
