As we were nearing the release of DC FanDome, we got the surprise announcement of a Suicide Squad-focused game by Rocksteady. It has been five years since their last game Batman: Arkham Knight was released. There have been quite a few rumors what they might be working on. A major one revolved around a Superman game that got rejected by Warner Bros. There were even discussions that they might be creating a game focused on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It wasn’t until a tweet earlier this month that they finally revealed they are working on a Suicide Squad game with a poster featuring Superman, as a cute wink and nod to the rumors.

Some thought it might be a little confusing, as the Suicide Squad gmae isn’t a tie-in to the upcoming James Gunn film titled The Suicide Squad. With the release of the official DC FanDome schedule, we now finally got the actual title for the game, which is Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. This pretty much confirms that it won’t just be a hunt for Superman. We will have to take down the various members of the Justice League, which already sounds quite daunting. Supposedly, this also takes place in the same universe as the Arkham games, so we also might see the return of Batman. It is unsure at what point it takes place. There was a post-credit sequence at the end of Batman: Arkham Origins that introduced Amanda Waller recruiting Deathstroke. So, there is a good chance he will be a part of the main roster. Here’s hoping we get a trailer at DC FanDome and a confirmation for the playable roster. Personally, I would love to have different segments for various characters, like underwater sections as King Shark, or sniper missions for Deathstroke.
