After a five-year wait, Rocksteady Studios, the developer behind the Batman: Arkham trilogy, has announced its next project is a Suicide Squad game.
Rather than opting for any fanfare, the studio simply tweeted out the reveal with an image of Superman (or could that be Bizzaro?) and a Suicide Squad logo. Evidently, we’ll know more when DC FanDome kicks off at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on Saturday, August 22. The free one-day virtual event is set to showcase what DC has coming up in the future, including The Batman, Zack Synder’s cut of Justice League, The Suicide Squad, and now Rocksteady’s take on the team of dysfunctional supervillains.

The reveal of a Suicide Squad game isn’t as surprising as it could have been after a recent report suggested Rocksteady was working on such a project. A cache of registered domain names may also hint at the game’s full title and indicate its central idea, with one called “SuicideSquadKillTheJusticeLeague.com.” The image Rocksteady has shared may also add some credence to the report. The Suicide Squad logo looks like it’s intended to be a crosshair targeting Superman’s head, which would fit if the game is indeed about killing off the Justice League.
