Suicide Squad game cancelled for new Batman game

December 22, 2016

Kotaku reports that a Suicide Squad game was quietly in development at Warner Bros. Montreal, however the game has been cancelled due to troubled development and failure to impress Warner Bros. management. The developer was previously behind behind Arkham Origins, a prequel to Rocksteady’s Arkham Asylum trilogy.

The game was allegedly going to be a co-op title and had been in development for two years. It had been teased in Origins as well as the companion handheld game Arkham Origins Blackgate. Many expected it to launch at the same time as this year’s Suicide Squad film, but with the movie having finished its time in the spotlight it became apparent the project was having issues.

Warner Bros. Montreal are reportedly now developing a new Batman game starring Bruce Wayne’s son, Damian Wayne. The news comes after studio head Martin Carrier and executive producer Reid Schneider left the company earlier this year. Stéphane Roy, executive producer of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, joined the company in November this year.
