‘Suicide Squad’ Game Latest News & Update: A ‘Batman’ Game Is Reportedly Up Instead Of ‘Suicide Squad’
Warner Bros. Montreal has canned their rumored "Suicide Squad" video game, according to new reports. Instead, the studio will keep its hands busy on another unannounced title, a speculated "Batman" game starring Damien Wayne.
Reported first by Kotaku, Warner Bros. execs have apparently decided to cancel the "Suicide Squad" game earlier this month after a series of problems at WB Montreal. The unannounced yet anticipated game, which stars DC's baddies, had been in development for at least two years, according to sources. In previous reports, the "Suicide Squad" game was expected to be a co-op game, but did not really impress WB Montreal execs during greenlight meetings.
WB Montreal Keeps Mum On "Suicide Squad"
Following the release of "Arkham Origins," WB Montreal hasn't announced anything big, prompting the idea that the studio might be working on a DC Comics video game as a follow up. The "Suicide Squad" game speculations further intensified upon referencing "Suicide Squad" at the ending of "Arkham Origins," as well as in "Arkham Origins Blackgate."
It was expected that the "Suicide Squad" game would be released together with the movie premiered in August, but the movie came and went with still no updates from Warner Bros. Games , apart from this mobile tie-in, which you can view on YouTube.
"Suicide Squad" To Be Replaced By A "Batman Game?"
Cancellation reports of the "Suicide Squad" game follow the mishaps at WB Montreal. Earlier this year, the company's studio head Martin Carrier and executive producer Reid Schneider called quits. By November, WB had a new studio head, Stephan Roy, who has worked on "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided" before.
There are no concrete details yet about the "Batman" game, given it's also an unannounced game. The shake-ups at WB Montreal have appeared to have waned out, so the company should be dropping news about the rumored "Suicide Squad" -- whether it was really cancelled or not - soon. Either way, Warner Bros. will have something to offer.
