Rocksteady New Game; Superman, Wonder Woman or Suicide Squad?

Rocksteady Studios secret new video game is still under wraps, but that hasn't stopped the speculation growing on what the big surprise may be. What could the Rocksteady new game be?

The British developer has dropped a few teasers since it was confirmed they were working on something new. First thoughts were it could be a new Batman game, due to the fact that the team have already been the brains behind three Batman games before, including Batman Arkham Knight for PS4. However, that idea was quashed when Rocksteady said that it will no longer be working on Batman games.

Now, the studio has posted a picture on Twitter showing members of their team in motion-capture suits, which has started the hype wagon and speculation rolling again.

Though we can't find any clues in the picture, what it does tell us is that it's extremely likely to be action-based game as expected.

The reaction on Twitter is top notch from fans of Rocksteady's work. While some people aren’t happy because they really want to know what the new game is, others think it's definitely either a Superman or Justice League game.

The Superman gifs and comments definitely outweigh the Justice League ones, but it's crystal clear that it’s a game featuring these superheroes that its Twitter followers want.

This guy has put two and two together and made five!

 

Rocksteady New Game Will Blow Our Minds

However, check this out. Rocksteady have previously said that “people will lose their minds” when they find out what the game is, so it's something BIG, maybe just as impressive as when they revealed the Batman game, or even more impressive. Something bigger, a game with multiple playable superheroes, or one of the most iconic heroes perhaps?

Is the Rocksteady New Game Wonder Woman?

Rocksteady Studios is an in-house Warner Bros studio, so you can pretty much guarantee it's related to one of their IPs. Now we're speculating wildly here, but taking a look at Warner Bros biggest-grossing superhero-related movies, Wonder Woman is right up there at number three under The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. People would lose their minds over a Wonder Woman game, made by the genius hands of the Rocksteady crew; and her legacy has become even more iconic since the film.

Could it be a Suicide Squad video game?

Our second guess is a Suicide Squad title. Once again, this was a huge film for Warner Bros and has a big fan base, and with Suicide Squad 2 coming up in 2019 it could tie in nicely. Warner Bros has already published a mobile title in the Suicide Squad franchise, but can you imagine stepping into the role of the world's most dangerous super villains and causing carnage in a Rocksteady-made world. It would be awesome!

We Think The New Rocksteady Game Is Superman

Our third guess is a Superman game that will blow us all away; and he’s arguably one of the most popular and well-known superheroes. And, there's a few dialogue-related Easter eggs that appear to be scattered within Arkham Knight. Phrases like “You know the only thing that's missing is if that freak from Metropolis flew here” and “Hah! No way man. You think the Bat is tough to kill? You don't wanna go up against the other guy in the cape.” Sounds like a teaser to us!

What's beautiful about all of this is that Rocksteady Games are up there with Rockstar Games for keeping a secret, and despite the fact there must be tons of people who know what the Rocksteady new game is for PS4, no-one else has a clue. However, our big inkling is that we’re not far away from a big Superman reveal! Let’s wait and see.

    Is there any particular reason we think Rocksteady can only create DC games? Can’t it be something completely different? Are they owned by DC or something?

    • Garri Bagdasarov

      They are owned by Warner Brothers who also own DC Comics

      • Beasley2K

        But they’re not owned by DC themselves. which means their new game isn’t necessarily a part of that universe and could be completely unrelated.

        • Honomaru

          Exactly. You hit it on the head.

          Unfortunately though I remember reading an article somewhere that rumored they were working on a Superman game. I’d be interested to see the gameplay and if they can pull it off (I hated Batman before watching The Dark Knight and playing Arkham Asylum.)

          But still…it’s Superman. Blech. Really hope they’re working on something else.

          • Beasley2K

            I’ve always liked Batman and the Arkham games are perhaps my favourite iteration (minus Arkham Knight). To follow up with as dull a superhero would be disppointing and wouldn’t interest me in the slightest. Personally I think it has nothing to do with DC, or is completely obscure, like Spawn.

          • Honomaru

            Dude a new Spawn game if done right would be fantastic!

          • Beasley2K

            Funnily enough, I only thought of this whilst writing the previous comment, but now I really hope it is Spawn. It’s not tied to any existing work such as a failed movie, and the gameplay would certainly be more enjoyable than the other suggestions. It would be darker than Batman and have a nice mix of brutal combat and supernatural powers.

            Though I’ve just realised that Spawn isn’t actually DC, but I hope that doesn’t rule it out.

  • Beasley2K

    I certainly hope it’s not a new Superman game as he’s he dullest superhero ever. Wonder Woman would be okay, but I’d prefer Suicide Squad or Justice League, despite their movies being shit. The idea of a hero/villain team does interest me.

    Personally, I’d rather a Marvel superhero game, like the Spider-Man game by Insomniac, so that’s looking more appealing to me. But they could be making something completely unrelated and not based on DC at all.

    Whatever they make, let’s hope it’s not as bad as Arkham Knight. That was a step in the wrong direction.
