Monolith’s Wonder Woman game, which is being published by Warner Bros. Games might be a live service title. A recent job listing has detailed various elements involved in the game and under the “Nice to Haves” there’s mention of maintaining a “live software product or game”.
While little is known about the Wonder Woman game at this time, Warner Bros. Games recently went on record to announce that the publisher would only focus on live service titles in the near future. Meaning, everything that comes out of Warner Bros. Games will have some sort of live service element.
We have seen this come to life with the recent Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and the failed Gotham Knights. Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League was officially unveiled in full last year with live service elements such as always online requirements, a battle pass and various in-game currencies.
Of course, this was met with a huge backlash from gamers who expected more from the Arkham Trilogy developers. The game was then delayed until only recently when Rocksteady shared 20 minutes of new gameplay and a new 2 February 2024 release date.
Wonder Woman seems to be going down the same route. The game was announced during The Game Awards last year in a fancy CG teaser. Reports claim that Monolith is incorporating WB Game’s patented Nemesis system into the game. Given the current trend with WB Games, I think we can expect Wonder Woman to be a live-service title. If the job listing doesn’t give this away, the publisher’s move into the genre will.
Hopefully, Monolith Productions will share something related to Wonder Woman soon. Considering that it has been a year since its announcement, we have seen nothing yet.
