Batman: Arkham Trilogy developer Rocksteady is rumored to be working on a Suicide Squad that could be a “games-as-a-service.”

Ever since Batman: Arkham Knight came out in 2015, there has been plenty of rumors and speculation on what Rocksteady could be working on next. Many thought the studio was developing a Superman game given the Lex Luthor teases in Arkham Knight, but that was eventually debunked by Rocksteady co-founder Sefton Hill.

While many are expecting that Warner Bros. Montreal’s Batman game will finally be announced at DC FanDome in August, perhaps Rocksteady might unveil their game at the digital event as well. During a recent episode of Kinda Funny Games Daily, former Game Informer editor Imran Khan said that he heard Rocksteady was developing a Suicide Squad game years ago and that it could be a “games-as-a-service” title like Fortnite. Many believed that Warner Bros. Montreal were working on a Suicide Squad game given the post-credits scene in Batman: Arkham Origins with Amanda Waller and Deathstroke, but that project has apparently been scrapped.

Here is the synopsis for Rocksteady’s last game, Batman: Arkham Knight:

In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever. Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady’s uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.
