Another Batman game, yay
It looks like Warner Montreal will not be releasing their unannounced Suicide Squad game, which we have been hearing about for so long, after all. Instead, it sounds like they have shifted all of their focus on the unannounced Batman game that was first reported on a little while back.
Kotaku reports that unnamed sources are confirming that Suicide Squad had been in development for at least two years, but that the game – which was planned on being a co-op game – failed to impress Warner Bros. executives, who axed the project. That, plus the general turbulence at the studio over the last year, involving multiple high profile departures, means that the studio is currently in no state to show off their next project.
That project will now be a new Batman game, focusing on Damien Wayne. Warner Montreal have already created Batman: Arkham Origins before, and they also worked on some DLC for last year’s Batman: Arkham Knight, so they should be well suited for the task. Hopefully, we get to see the game some time soon.
