At the end of Batman: Arkham Origins the formation of the task force was teased thus the Suicide squad was officially first time teased back there. At the post-credits scene, Deathstroke is approached by Amanda Waller to join the team, and also at the end of the Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Catwoman, Deadshot, and Bronze Tiger join the Amanda Waller’s Team, which later known as Suicide Squad. Even at that time, Bane was under consideration for the team. In the years since Batman: Arkham Knight released, there have been rumors suggesting that WB Games Montreal was working on a Suicide Squad game, but no official announcement was made from the development team or publisher.

At the time of when Batman Arkham Knights released, there have been many rumors speculating about WB Games Montreal, which allegedly working on a Suicide Squad game project, but no official confirmation was there. Later in December 2016, Jason Schreier from Kotaku revealed that the Suicide Squad project was canceled at the pre-production phase, they officially shifted focus to the next Batman game, centering on Damian Wayne, which turns out to be the Gotham Knights as per the latest reveal at DC FanDome.

  • According to another leak from 4chan leak, the story of the Suicide Squad game is quite different than what we are expecting. In the leak, it has been said that the story would begin where Amanda Waller declares a personal war against the Justice League when Batman attempts to shut her Project Cadmus operations down. According to the leak, there are going to be Deadshot, Harley Quinn, El Diablo, Captain Boomerang, King Shark, Cheetah, and Enchantress featured as playable characters.
  • From some nonconfirmed speculations: Another theory comes in front where the fearsome look of the Superman’s eye in the trailer justifies the Injustice angle of Justice League, where Justice League becomes the villain for the whole world. As the main story is loosely adapted from the Justice League Doom, so it is being speculated that the story would take some twists and turns where Suicide Squad become would take the name of the Legion of Doom.
