At The Game Awards it was revealed that Shadow of Mordor developer, Monolith Productions is making a Wonder Woman game.
I think it’s fair to say that not many of us saw this announcement coming, but I am sure it’s one that many DC fans will appreciate.
If memory serves me correct, I think this might be the first time that Wonder Woman has starred in her own game. At best, she has made appearances in the Injustice series as well as LEGO games. So, it’s an overdue announcement for Diana of Themyscira.
Wonder Woman is developed by Monolith Productions, the studio behind Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Middle-earth: Shadow of War. This will be a single player, open-world action game with an original story.
It’ll also use the Nemesis System that Warner Bros. secured a patent for earlier this year. So at least the publisher is going to do something with that now.
“Become Diana of Themyscira in the fight to unite her Amazon family and the humans from the modern world,” reads the press release. “Powered by the Nemesis System, gamers will forge deep connections with both enemies and allies as they progress from a heroic fighter into a proven leader.”
“Wonder Woman is one of the most iconic DC Superheroes of all time, standing for truth, justice and equality for over 80 years, and we’re proud to be creating an exciting new gaming chapter in this legendary character’s legacy,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Games.
“Become Diana of Themyscira”
“At Monolith Productions, we believe in the power of player-driven storytelling to unite people. The stories our players share inspire us every day, and we are honoured to take players on a unique personal journey, driven by the values embodied in Wonder Woman,” said David Hewitt, Vice President, Studio Head, Monolith Productions.
At this time, we have no release date for Wonder Woman, but I have a feeling it will at least be a couple of years away. Furthermore, platforms haven’t been announced either. But it might be safe to assume that it will release on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
