No Live Service for Wonder Woman.
In a surprising twist, Warner Bros. has come forward to address the swirling rumors about the upcoming Wonder Woman game being a live-service game. It turns out, fans worried about daily missions and seasonal updates can breathe easy.
The Rumor Mill
The speculation began with a job listing for a lead software engineer on Monolith’s Wonder Woman game. The listing, which mentioned experience in maintaining a live software product, set tongues wagging. Industry watchers, like Wccftech, quickly jumped on this as a sign that the game would adopt a live-service model, a trend that’s becoming increasingly common in the gaming world.
Warner Bros.’s Response
But Warner Bros. was quick to deflect these rumors. In a statement to IGN, they clarified: “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 in an original story set in the DC Universe. Wonder Woman is not being designed as a live service.”
The Industry Trend and Warner Bros.’s Stand
This move by Warner Bros. is noteworthy, especially considering the current industry trend. There’s a growing dislike among gamers towards the live-service model. Games like Diablo 4 and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League have faced backlash for their live-service elements. Warner Bros.’ decision to keep Wonder Woman a traditional single-player game seems to be a response to this trend.
