Sources have informed Kotaku that WB Games Montreal has cancelled an unannounced Suicide Squad video game set to take the place of the hugely popular Arkham franchise.
Apparently, the studio was working on the game for two years. Unfortunately, the game failed to impress executives at Warner Bros., who killed the project earlier this month.
But, all is not lost, DC Fans!
WB Games Montreal will now turn their attention to another big project that they've been secretly working on - a brand new Batman game starring Damian Wayne.
WB Games Montreal was founded in 2010 and is best known for their 2013 title Batman: Arkham Origins. That game teased a Suicide Squad get-together, and led to rumors that the gaming company was working on a new title focused on the group of government employed anti-heroes.
Many assumed the game would arrive alongside David Ayer's Suicide Squad movie, but that release window came and went without any official word from Warner Bros. Games.
The title's cancellation comes after a shaky year at WB Games Montreal, which saw studio heads Martin Carrier and executive producer Reid Schneider leave the company. Late last month, Warner Bros. would hire Stéphane Roy, who was previously an executive producer on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided at Eidos Montreal.
Not much is known about the upcoming Damian Wayne game at this time, but we're guessing this one may not see release for a little while given the recent studio shake-ups.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
