SUICIDE SQUAD GAME OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED

#1 Posted by Baddamdog (2212 posts) - - Show Bio

In this afternoon's "DC Focus: Geoff Johns" panel at Comic-Con International, DC Entertainment's chief creative officer revealed that work has begun on a Suicide Squad video game.

Johns said the game, which is being developed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, will be "hardcore violent."

The studio's video-game publishing unit has undergone dramatic expansion over the past few years, acquiring developers TT Games, Snowblind Studios, Rocksteady Studios and Turbine Inc., and in March announcing plans for a new game-development studio in downtown Montreal.

Following the critical and commercial success of last year's Batman: Arkham Asylum, which sold a reported 2 million copies in its first three weeks of success, Warner Bros. announced it's developing a sequel. It's also working with Double Helix on a Green Lantern game that will be released along with next summer's film.

DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson told Hero Complex it's part of a push to put more DC characters in WBIE titles. (The new WB Games Montreal is expected to focus largely on the company's comics properties.)

Although Nelson says that not all of the games will tie in to movies -- for instance, Arkham Asylum had nothing to do with The Dark Knight -- it seems likely that Suicide Squad title will be connected to the big-screen adaptation announced in February 2009.

 Coming to a console near you
This is great news. I'm hoping for a M-rated game inspired by the MUA formula.

I had high hopes for the game, until it was stated to be based on the upcoming movie.
 
I think I'll spend $60 on something else when it comes out.

Being a huge super-villain fan, I'll probably be interested depending on whether there's going to be a PC version or not.

@bigcimmerian: With the release of Assault on Arkham, and the endings of Arkham Origins and Blackgate, I'd expect it to pop up not too long after Arkham Knight.

There's been a ton of Suicide Squad build up from WB pretty recently, so if it's ever going to happen, I can see it being official soon.

Cool, I'm sick of Batman games, other DC heroes should have games. I'd like to play great Aquaman and Flash games besides Suicide Squad.
