Suicide Squad Game Cancelled in Favor of New Batman Game
According to sources, Warner Bros. Montreal will not be moving forward with a video game based on the this year’s supervillain team-up film Suicide Squad. The game’s development reportedly had been experiencing “a long period of turbulence” since its two-year development began, and failed to impress the right people in Warner Bros. management.
The tie-in was to feature cooperative gameplay and release alongside the the movie back in August, but for previously mentioned reasons, the game was not completed. To fill the void, the mobile game Suicide Squad: Special Ops was released instead.
WB Montreal is now shiftng focus towards a new Batman game, and if rumors are to be believed, the game will star the Dark Knight’s son in the role of Batman. No, not Terry McGinnis. Damian Wayne, the child Bruce had with on-again, off-again love interest Talia al Ghul.
Damian is currently the leader of the Teen Titans as part of DC’s comics relaunch DC Rebirth. If WB Montreal chose to pursue that route, a team dynamic certainly would make for a fresh take on the Batman video game formula. Whether or not the new project is a continuation of the Batman: Arkham games remains to be seen as of yet.
