Tomorrow will be a big day for Rocksteady Studios. They will unveil the first official look at their new game, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League at the DC FanDome event. But something of a dark cloud came over the announcement as harassment allegations, which you can read more about through here. In fact, one of the writers on Suicide Squad publicly asked for her name to be taken off the project. Now, they have a response.
On their official Twitter, the studio published a letter. In it they acknowledge the 2018 letter that sparked these reports. They add that they did listen to their women employees, as well as saying there was action taken both in the past, as well as things planned for the future. The big thing is that they say they have allegedly brought in a third party for investigations into the matter, though no specific details are given. You can see the full letter below.
Rocksteady has been largely radio silent since the release of Arkham VR in 2016. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be a first look at a project from them for nearly 5 years. With the response below, it’s doubtful that any of this will be addressed at DC FanDome tomorrow when the game is revealed, but we’ll see, and keep you updated on any new information that comes out.
