The position calls for a ‘Lead Softwares Engineer, Gameplay’ and states clearly that the job is for the Wonder Woman game: “Join the Wonder Woman team and help bring an iconic DC Superhero to life.” The “nice to haves” section of the application mentions live service specifically, stating an applicant may have an edge if they possess “experience helping maintain a live software product or game.”
This isn’t an outright confirmation that Wonder Woman will be a live service affair, but it seems to point that way, and does align with previous comments from Warner Bros. Discovery’s David Zaslav, who revealed the company’s goal of injecting live service content into its biggest franchises.
Our focus is on transforming our biggest franchises from largely console and PC based with three-four year release schedules to include more always on gameplay through live services, multiplatform and free-to-play extensions with the goal to have more players spending more time on more platforms.
Wonder Woman was officially announced at The Game Awards 2021 although we’ve seen little on the title since then. Back in April 2022, it was revealed that the project had gained a new senior writer, and in January this year the game’s design director UX heaped praise on the team’s dedication to accessibility.
The Wonder Woman video game is currently in development at Monolith Production and is without a release date.
