Warner Bros Games has responded to reports that the new Wonder Woman game will be live-service, and it’s good news.
DC games have been in a bit of a sorry state recently, especially with Rocksteady’s recent reveal of Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, which has failed to impress fans following its delay to early 2024.

It’s a shame given how the Batman: Arkham Trilogy set the standard for superhero games, only recently receiving tough competition from Marvel’s Spider-Man, whose sequel recently surpassed 5 million sales on PlayStation 5.
Unfortunately, the last Batman game was the legendary Batman: Arkham Knight, leaving the future of DC games questionable, to say the least.
However, there is a saving grace, Wonder Woman. The single-player game is in production with Monolith, the studio responsible for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, though that’s all we really know about. Unfortunately, the lack of information has led to several rumours about the game, with a recent one being the game would include live-service elements.
This was believable given Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is confirmed to be live-service. Additionally the CEO of Warner Bros Games, David Zaslav, recently stated the company aims 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".
Luckily, Warner Bros has swooped in and delivered a statement to IGN, denying Wonder Woman will be live service. The full statement reads: "Wonder Woman is a single-player action-adventure game set in a dynamic open world.
“This third-person experience will allow players to become Diana of Themyscira and introduce an original story set in the DC Universe, while also featuring the Nemesis System. Wonder Woman is not being designed as a live service.”
No details were shared on Wonder Woman’s release date, but it’ll likely launch on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and PC sometime in 2024/2025.
