Warner Bros’ Scrapped Superman Video Game Details Emerge

Images and details from Warner Bros’ canceled Superman video game projects emerge.

DC fans have been waiting patiently for news regarding Warner Bros. Montreal and Rocksteady’s upcoming projects. Warner Bros. Montreal’s game is expected to come first and is rumored to involve the Court of Owls and the Bat-family. Meanwhile, Rocksteady remains tight lipped on what they are working on, but have said in the past that they are not working on a Superman game.

An open world Superman game has been rumored for years now and it turns out there have been a few in development from Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment. Video game writer James Sigfield took to a lengthy Twitter thread and provided some details regarding the canceled Superman games.

According to Sigfield, Warner Bros. started developing an open world Superman video game back in 2013. Warner Bros. was taking pitches for the Superman game likened to Marvel’s Spider-Man in the tweet. The Superman game was pitched to take place in Metropolis and feature many DC villains. Superman: Unbound was the next project that began to make strides at the studio. Superman: Unbound supposedly followed the Brainiac comic book and animated film storyline. Sigfield’s tweets say:

“This game was set to take place almost entirely in a city called Kandor. For those unfamiliar, Kandor is a Metropolis-like city from Krypton that was shrunk and bottled up by Brainiac before the planet’s explosion. The game was supposed to be less “open world” so as to limit Superman’s vast array of abilities. This game was to feature foes such as Brainiac, Doomsday, and tons of other mind controlled villains. “

Apparently Superman: Unbound faced issues because Warner Bros. wanted the game to play on the Batman: Arkham engine, which wasn’t possible at the time. He also goes on to say that the Suicide Squad video game was canceled for the same reason. You can read James Sigfield ‘s entire Twitter thread below:
