Rocksteady Studios, the developer best known for its work on the Batman: Arkham series, revealed it's working on a game in the Suicide Squad franchise Friday.

"Target locked," the developer tweeted alongside an image of Superman with a Suicide Squad crosshair on his head. The developer indicated further information about the game would be revealed at the DC FanDome event scheduled to take place on Aug. 22. This new game will be the first developed by Rocksteady since the release of Batman: Arkham VR in 2016, and its first non-Batman title since 2006's Urban Chaos: Riot Response.

WB Games Montréal was reportedly working on a Suicide Game until it was canceled in late 2016, according to Bloomberg News reporter Jason Schreier. Schreier tweeted WB Montréal is now working on a different Batman game that will likely also appear at DC FanDome.

DC FanDome is a virtual fan experience focusing on DC properties across television, film, video games, comics and more. The event begins at 1 p.m. ET on Aug. 22 and will be available for 24 hours on the DC FanDome website.
