A spokesperson for Warner Brothers has denied the recent reports suggesting the upcoming “Wonder Woman” game will be a live service title.
The reports began after a job listing for the title called for someone who had experience with “a live software product or game”.
Combined with recent comments from Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav about his company’s plans to push into the live service gaming arena with their biggest IPs (including DC), the concern was understandable.
IGN has now published a statement from a Warner Bros. spokesperson about what the publisher intends for the title to be and makes it very clear this is not a live service title:
“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.”
The news marks a welcome sigh of relief for many gamers who’ve actively criticised Warners’ move into the live service gaming arena. Monolith, the developer of “Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor,” is heading up the development of the game which currently doesn’t have a release date.
