Late last week, new domain registrations by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment were spotted online. These new domains hint pretty heavily at new games involving both Batman and the Suicide Squad.
Today on June 22, a report from our sister site Eurogamer states that yes, the Suicide Squad and Batman games are real, and in development at Warner Bros. The report states that Batman: Gotham Knights is in development at WB Montreal (developer of Arkham Origins), while the Suicide Squad game is being developed by Rocksteady. Both are slated for next-gen consoles, although the Suicide Squad game by Rocksteady is still a few years off from release.
The domain listings from Warner Bros. were first spotted by ResetEra (thanks, VideoGamesChronicle). The two domains are 'suicidesquadgame.com,' and 'gothamknights.com', and were registered by MarkMonitor Inc, the domain broker primarily used by WB Games for registrations.
News about an upcoming Batman game from WB is nothing new, of course. The teasers for a new Batman game first began last year in September 2019, when Warner Bros. Montreal posted Batman imagery to the developer's Twitter account. A few months later in December, the "Capture the Knight" tagline for an unannounced project emerged, with emblems pointing towards the Court of Owls. We've neither heard nor seen anything of this project since the initial teaser however, which many believe is the next Batman game.
An official reveal might be just around the corner. WB has scheduled a "FanDome" event for August, pulling together movies, games, and TV announcements for all its properties into one event. Could this be setting the stage for new Batman-related game reveals?
