Future games based on DC IP are set to be part of the same connected universe as the company's TV and film output.
That's according to DC Studios' co-CEO and co-chair James Gunn, who said on Twitter that movies and television shows – both live action and animated – would be part of the same DC Universe. Asked whether this would also include video games, Gunn simply said "Yes".
This comes in the wake of something of a corporate shakeup over at DC parent company Warner Bros following its acquisition by Discovery. The head of the new Warner Bros Discovery, David Zaslav, has said he wants a "bible" to be created for a "cohesive DC universe".
It's likely that the announced DC game projects won't be included in the DCU so far. This includes Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which is set in the Batman Arkham universe and is launching in 2023.
