Despite the demand, the developer has remained absolutely radio silent on their next venture. However, a new leak seems to suggest that they may finally be ready to debut the game at E3 next weekend.
The leak originates from 4chan (via ComicBook) and claims that the game will officially be announced this week when Game Informer unveils their July cover. Rocksteady will then debut the first gameplay footage next Sunday, during Microsoft’s E3 conference, which begins at 4:00 p.m. EST.
It’s not entirely clear what we’ll see, but it sounds like it’ll be a reveal trailer that showcases Brainiac’s invasion of Earth and Superman being weakened from battle. Gameplay footage will demonstrate the flying controls and the new combat system as Superman battles Brainiac drones both on the ground and in the sky.
To add more fuel to the fire, a new website, supermangame.com, has goneup, but has yet-to-go live. It’s expected to go live sometime after the game’s introduction later this week.
As always, it’s probably best to take this rumor with a grain of salt, especially considering that a very similar rumor was floating around in November, but then again, it does seem that Game Informer has something very big planned for their next cover as executive editor Andrew Reiner recently teased on Twitter, “Loving the run of Game Informer covers we’ve had in 2018. Nextmonth’s is very very very very cool.” When a follower suggested a Superman cover, Reiner, who flat-out denied the report in November, was a little more cryptic with his response, “He needs a new cape.“
