Batman Arkham Game Starring Damian Wayne Is WB Montreal’s Only Focus; Suicide Squad Game Canceled – Rumor
Following the release of Batman Arkham Knight last year and Batman Arkham VR a few months back, we haven’t heard anything about a new entry in the series, not counting rumors talking about a new WB Montreal developed game starring Damian Wayne. Rumors stated that WB Montreal is also working on a Suicide Squad game, but it seems like this game may never get released.
Earlier today, Kotaku reported that the WB Montreal developed Suicide Squad game has been canceled. According to three people familiar with the studio, the game has been axed by the Warner Bros. following a long period of turbulence.
Executives at Warner Bros. decided to axe the Suicide Squad game earlier this month following a long period of turbulence at WB Montreal, according to three people familiar with the studio. The game, which would star DC Comics’ eponymous band of anti-heroes, had been in development for at least two years. Hints of its existence had been floating around for just as long. I’ve heard it was a co-op game—and that it failed to impress Warner Bros. management during greenlight meetings—but not much else.
With the Suicide Squad game cancellation, WB Montreal is now focused on the rumored new Batman Arkham game starring Damian Wayne. The game was supposed to be unveiled this month, but the current issues within the team may have forced a delay of the unveiling.
Even though the Batman Arkham game starring Damian Wayne has yet to be confirmed, some very early work in progress footage may have been shown last month in a couple of WB Montreal videos. We will keep you updated on this game as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
