A new report claims that the “Batman: Arkham” studio, Rocksteady, is indeed the developer behind the “Suicide Squad” game mentioned in the domain name registrations.
According to Eurogamer, the London studio has been working on the project for years, and the “Suicide Squad Kill The Justice League” domain is potentially the game’s full title, as well as a summation of its content.
The Original Story…
Domain registrations for a game seemingly titled “Gotham Knights”, and a potential Suicide Squad game have been found online.
ResetEra user DriftingOrbit posted their findings, which include domain registrations for “suicidesquadgame.com”, “suicidesquadkillthejusticeleague.com” and “gothamknightsgame.com.”
The source of the domain registrations wasn’t immediately clear but, as pointed out by user JaseC in the same thread, the company listed as the domain registrar is MarkMonitor Inc, which also registered the wbgames.com domain. This lent some credibility to the existence of these games, but it was nothing concrete.
Sifting Through the Noise
DC is holding a digital event called DC FanDome on August 22, where WB Games will be making announcements. Many are already speculating that these games will be revealed or announced at the event.
We learned earlier in June that AT&T, WB Interactive’s owner, may be looking to sell its gaming division, which includes studios like NetherRealm and Batman Arkham developers, Rocksteady.
What Platform Do You Own?
