Rocksteady Teases a Suicide Squad Game Reveal for Later This Month

Rocksteady Teases a Suicide Squad Game Reveal for Later This Month

See you at FanDome, Squaddies.

Well, even though the teaser image we got today shows that iconic spit-curl and cape, it seems Rocksteady really hasn't been working on a Superman game for all these years. Nope, it looks like the studio's next project after Batman: Arkham Knight has finally been revealed as a Suicide Squad game, and we should be learning more about it soon.

Specifically, Rocksteady's tweeted out a date and an event for more info on Suicide Squad: August 22 during DC FanDome. Back in June, when Warner Brothers announced the online DC convention, it promised "new announcements from WB Games" would be featured at the event. At the very least, that should entail details on Suicide Squad.

Back in June, our sister site Eurogamer reported that FanDome should also see a reveal of WB Montréal's upcoming Batman title, which it's been dropping hints about for quite a while now. Warner Brothers reportedly canceled a showcase planned to coincide with E3 2020 where it would have revealed both DC titles plus an open-world Harry Potter title.

Beyond how little we know about this Suicide Squad project, a few other factors will make this August 22 reveal one to watch. It's been a long time since Arkham Knight was released but we don't have a good sense of when Suicide Squad will drop; if it's a cooperative title, comparisons will certainly be drawn with the Crystal Dynamics Avengers game coming out next month; with rumblings of AT&T looking to sell Warner's games division, audience reaction to this debut could have huge business implications.

So: there are no platforms confirmed for Rocksteady's Suicide Squad game, no word on when we'll be playing it, or any solid idea of what playing it will be like. Still, now we know what the studio's been up to and when we'll be seeing a proper unveiling. This one tweet's the biggest movement we've seen out of Rocksteady in a while, but August has more news in store.
