The workforce’s AAA new IP has been recognized about for fairly some time thanks to a job itemizing that appeared a few months after the announcement of Gotham Knights. The new job itemizing is for a 3C Game Designer who will design playable characters for a third-person open world motion recreation. While this might match the premise of Gotham Knights, many really feel it extra doubtless to be the brand new AAA title. Sigfield has beforehand leaked the premise of Gotham Knights earlier than the sport was introduced, in addition to Rocksteady’s give attention to Suicide Squad. This lends extra weight to his hints that the brand new recreation will be a Superman title.

Sigfield has since been discussing the deserves of a Superman recreation with fellow Twitter customers, and several other of his Tweets have been favored by WB Games Montréal’s Creative Director Patrick Redding. While this might all be a coincidence, particularly as I’m undecided Superman may be described as a brand new IP, a Superman recreation is lengthy overdue and the studio does have a historical past with the franchise. In phrases of the video games universe, Superman would technically be a “new IP” for the developer, simply because the Batman Arkham sequence of video games was a “new IP” regardless of Batman being established.

Of course, there have been additionally the rumors of a Superman title from Rocksteady. Whether these rumors ever get off the bottom stays to be seen.
