Rumor has it that Warner Bros. Games Montreal, the studio responsible for the open-world super hero game, Batman: Arkham Origins, released in 2013, is making a Superman video game through a supposedly leaked screenshot.

The supposedly leaked screenshot from the Superman game shows off a menu which resembles a screen where the player could select the main character’s costume. It lists Superman’s abilities with the costume, as well as his vulnerabilities. The UI buttons are those of an Xbox 360 controller.

This rumor follows last week’s news that WB Games Montreal is hiring to fill 15 positions for an open world action game, which is “a new IP project for next generation game platforms.” The game they are working on will have an online component and, most importantly, WB’s listing describes them as being “a passionate dev team developing DC Comics-focused AAA games that evolve and celebrate the legendary brands of Warner Bros.” Superman would fit the description.

Do you think the rumor is real? If it is, do you think it’s for a new Superman game or could it be for something else? Let us know in the comments section below, and be sure to follow OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for more news.

Update: Sources tell us that Warner Bros Montreal isn’t working on a Superman game, but the heavily rumored Suicide Squad game. Neither is confirmed or denied, however, so we’ll leave this as a true rumor for now until we find a source for the image or hear something different.

  1. Stoked!

  2. Don’t play with my feelings.

  3. Unless they fix PC version of Batman I couldn’t care less about this ..

    1. Different developers, unless you’re referring to the publisher then I’d agree with ya.

      1. Referring to the publisher who knowingly released Batman in its poor state. Lost some trust in them.

        1. That’s what I figured you were talking about. Yea, their console releases are always really good, but PC just gets shafted time and time again. With refunds now though, doubt they’ll let that happen again. Never know though.

    2. no more DC games for you?

  4. yes!!! now give us some of supermans best and strongest villians!

  5. Looks more like something from Injustice, possibly part 2.
    Also, this looks exactly like the costume for Injustice’s New 52 Superman skin.

    1. With the online component, it may be something in the vein of Justice League. With NetherRealm just finishing up Mortal Kombat X development, probably a bit too early for Inustice 2.

  6. I thought WB Montreal were working on a Suicide Squad game,

    *spoilers*

    The end of arkham origins pretty much teased the hell out of that, and with their movie launching fall next year it would make a lot of sense. That screenshot looks very convincing though, but there’s no reason to believe that’s WB Montreals game, it could be one of WBs other studios games(injustice 2 maybe? We know it’s coming eventually).

    1. I still agree w/ you, Suicide Squad is most definitely the game they are working on. Superman wouldn’t necessarily be considered a “new ip” in the gaming space as he’s had multiple games already. Suicide Squad has never had a dedicated title, and all of those hints in Origins most definitely hints toward a Suicide Squad title. I think Rocksteady will most likely work w/ Superman on a Justice League title to coincide with that film’s release as well. There were quite a few JL easter egss in the form of Queen Industries & LexCorp buildings in Arkham Knight, plus that whole dual play mechanic seems to be testing out a full team based title for their next game.

      I think this would most likely be a new Injustice or free to play mmo or something to that effect. If this was a Superman title, why would it even have the “Kal El, Superman” deal w/ all of his stats on a costume selection screen if its his own title? Wouldn’t they have assumed we’d have all of that information? This points to Superman being a character among multiple characters, not the star of the title in question.

      1. Just spoke with Shinobi about it, says this probably has no relation to the Warner Bros Montreal Product which is Suicide Squad. Based on his track record, I’d certainly believe that.

      2. I definitely agree, it feels more like Superman is part of an ensemble with that description.

      3. DC Universe Online 2?

  7. Ugh- dat comic sans…

  8. 360 controls?

    1. He probably just meant Xbox Controls.. and got carried away.. he clearly said “next gen systems” in the article too..

      1. I meant “if this is supposed to be a real next gen game, why 360 controls on the image?”

        1. How can you distinguish between 360 and Xbox One controls?

          1. 360 are coloured i, the Xbox One’s controls are black with coloured symbols?

  9. either a new superman game or injustice. although, netherrealm handles developing injustice sooooo it’s probably not that.

  10. So sick of open world games.

    Please make more big name games that focus on levels of action instead.

    They look so much better and are way more fun. Open world boredom.

    1. Need an open world for superman!

  11. that image uses the wiki summary for superman from here https://superman.wikia.com/wiki/Superman

    Possible it is just placeholder text.

    1. More than likely confirms this as a fake, if anything. But, until a source is found or someone debunks it entirely we’ll never know :/

  12. That would be Great if its True

  13. Why the hell would they make last-gen versions? if this is real I hope they don’t water-down the current-gen versions or let another dev make the last-gen versions

    1. kept you waiting huh?

      1. Yup, the last Superman game I’ve played was Superman Returns on PS2 in 2006.

    2. If it’s made on ANY console, it’s watered down.

      Now you know what PC players feel on every multi-plat release these days.

      1. Sorry, but I don’t give a sh!t about PC as a gaming platform, I care about consoles a million times more, can you get Mario, Halo, Zelda, Uncharted, God or War etc? of course not.

          1. Hahahahahaha. I don’t have a PC, but I’m working on building one for that simple reason of how many games you have access to. Some gamers are just blind and prejudice for no reason. Do I prefer a PS4, sure, but if you’re a true gamer, then you’ll want all the consoles and PC.

          2. No I think a true gamer is someone who cares about the game more than the system

          3. I noticed that the Wiki page is bullshit, AOE2, a game that I still consider as the best RPG PC game, was on PS2 too, so its not really exclusive.

        1. As a PC-Gamer, i give a fuck about Mario, Halo, Zelda, Uncharted, God or War etc. You, can keep it kiddo ;)

          1. You can’t play them on PC fuckhead, so it doesn’t make any sense giving a fuck.

        2. WHo cares about Mario? Another milked, generic, boring platformer.

          Halo has always been shit.

          I wouldn’t play the “exclusives” card, as Steam has a bigger library than 360, PS3, PS4 and Xbox Fail combined.

          The consoles have the following AAA exclusives not on PC – Zelda, Uncharted, God of War, Forza…what else…hmmm…all at pathetic 30 FPS and often 900p.

          I’ll take mods (not the bullshit skins that will come to consoles in Fallout etc, I’m talking graphics mods, ENB series, complete world and mechanics changers, stuff that requires scripting tweaks that faggot consoles cant do or run), 4K, 100+ FPS, 120hz, keyboard and mouse, bigger screens etc over bullshit doorstop consoles any day.

          1. you would rather wait 2 weeks for the release of MGS V TPP on PC than playing it on PS4, 1080p 60fps?

      2. (replying to your other comment which was removed)

        That’s why people buy a console. So they don’t have to worry about the hardware. You let the games speak for themselves.

        You don’t seem to know much about hardware yourself, from what I see. Games are made on PC, not on console. They’re coded for specific consoles, sure.
        Console gamers have been around for a long time. Consoles are home to some of the greatest games in history. Other games wouldn’t even have made their way to PC if they hadn’t existed on consoles.

        Uncharted has no effect on PC gaming. Now you’re just being a mindless fanboy.
        Bad ports are simply publisher and developer decision. Consoles aren’t ruining anything. But people like you are polluting the gaming community.

        1. Please keep personal attacks off the site. Not just pointing you out, as others have done it as well here and they’re being moderated as well. No need to call people fanboys or any other names etc.

      3. Just like Batman Arkham Knight? Wait consoles are the only place you can play it now.

    3. Sometimes in development, an Xbox 360 controller will be used on the PC version of the game to test out controls. Considering you can use Xbox One controllers on PC though now, I’m not sure what to think about this one.

  14. Would be cool but I have a feeling it wouldn’t sell as good as the Arkham series. We all know batman is far more popular and has a better cast of villains.

  15. Really hope this is real, a Superman game with the Arkham system would be a dream come true. I know Origins wasn’t the best, but it was a solid game for the developers first title.

  16. if warner montreal is involved it’s going to be a horrible game regardless if it’s based on superman or the suicide squad

  17. While it would be nice to get a Superman game, every Superman game to date has been a failure. I will wait and see on this one.

  18. Stop being dumb people , it’s obviously a justice league game.

  19. That is probably not a Superman game, but a Justice League one.
