After years of leaks and impatient anticipation, Rocksteady finally officially confirmed last week that their next game is indeed a Suicide Squad title, and that it will be revealed at the DC FanDome event on August 22. These were, of course, details that had been previously leaked. Something else that had been leaked alongside them was the game’s name– which, too, has now been officially confirmed.
The full schedule for the DC FanDome event was recently uploaded online, and it confirms that Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad is game is called Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice league, as the leaks had said. The name does a pretty good job of explaining the game’s central premise, I’d say.
The aforementioned schedule confirms that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be revealed in full during a 20 minute-long panel hosted by actor Will Arnett. There’s no telling how much will be shown or revealed, but with a 20 minute runtime, Rocksteady will probably (hopefully) have more to share than just a tease.
We’ll be covering it as it happens, so stay tuned for all the details. In the meantime, you can read this report about the game’s development, which allegedly started in late 2016/early 2017.
It has also been confirmed that WB Montreal’s Batman game – allegedly called Batman: Gotham Knights – will also be unveiled on that same day.
