DC has unveiled the panel lineup for DC FanDome, a 24-hour event set to begin on Aug. 22, and among its lineup will be the first look at two long-awaited, rumored, and teased games based on DC characters.
As previously revealed via a single image featuring Superman in the crosshairs of the Suicide Squad, Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham follow-up will be featured in a panel on Aug. 22 at 5 p.m. PT. DC also confirmed the name for the game, a version of which has previously been leaked, to be Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
The panel description currently reads: “Will Arnett hosts the highly anticipated video game reveal from Rocksteady Studios, creators of the Batman: Arkham franchise.”
Also confirmed to be at DC FanDome is WB Games Montreal’s currently untitled game, the studio’s first since Batman: Arkham Origins. The panel promises an announcement and first look at the game, which has long been teased and rumored to be a Batman game. The studio released teaser images for the game on Batman Day last year, followed by one additional tease of another logo and website earlier this year, only for silence to follow. After E3 2020 was cancelled, reports suggested that WB Games had been planning to show the alleged Batman game at a company-focused E3 showcase.
The Montreal game panel description for now only reads “Gamers! You won’t want to miss this first look at an exciting new game, and Q&A with its developers.”
For several years now, speculation and some teases from the studio have led many to believe WB Games Montreal’s possible Batman game will feature some form of Court of Owls adaptation, but the studio has yet to release any official details about the game.
You can check out the full schedule for DC FanDome – and how to watch it – right now.
