Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Confirmed As Rocksteady New Game
Rocksteady’s new Suicide Squad game was confirmed just recently, and now we know what it’s titled Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The title was confirmed in the schedule for the upcoming DC Fandome event, where DC plans on revealing more on the new game, and in the game’s official Twitter account. The schedule says DC will hold a panel at the event on Sunday, August 22, during which “Will Arnett hosts the highly anticipated video game reveal from Rocksteady Studios, creators of the Batman: Arkham franchise”.
The panel was posted to the event schedule this morning. Bearing the same name as the game itself, the panel will be hosted this Saturday, August 22, starting at 5pm PT / 8pm ET / 1am BT. Actor Will Arnett will host the reveal, which is expected to last roughly 20 minutes. This implies there will be much more than a mere trailer.
The listing for the panel doesn’t contain any other information, and the only graphic used is the same anti-Superman poster that Rocksteady shared last week. At least, it looks like Superman. However, the character’s purple tint suggests it could be the villainous Superman lookalike Bizarro. Anyway, our immediate knowledge of the game hasn’t changed. It’s called Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and Rocksteady is making it. After the success of the Batman: Arkham games, that’s all we needed to hear.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been a long time coming from Rocksteady even if people didn’t know what the game would be called or what it would be about. Rocksteady has noticeably been absent from many of the recent major gaming events while informing their fans that there’d be more to share on the new project whenever Rocksteady was ready. The confirmation of Rocksteady’s next game being a Suicide Squad-focused property came abruptly, but it at least put an end to the wait.
Even though people weren’t sure it would be a Suicide Squad game prior to the August confirmation, Suicide Squad was a DC property often the subject of rumors and theories from people trying to figure out what Rocksteady was working on. Known best for their Batman games, people theorized whether the new project would be another Batman game, a Superman game, or something entirely different like Suicide Squad. The Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League name itself even appeared before in domains owned by Warner Bros. that first tipped people off about what the game would be called.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will have its full reveal take place during the DC FanDome event on August 22nd.
