# Upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ Game May Feature Live Service Components

A recent job listing at Monolith Productions, the studio behind the successful ‘Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor’, points toward their next venture, a “Wonder Woman” title, incorporating live service or games-as-a-service elements.

## Seeking Experience in Game Maintenance

According to [Wccftech](, Monolith is on the hunt for a lead software engineer with experience in “helping maintain a software product or game live,” indicating a potential shift in the game’s structure.

### What Do Games-as-a-Service Entail?

Games that are dubbed as a service are typically maintained for an extended period post-launch, offering players seasonal expansions and sometimes, the option to purchase additional items such as cosmetics and weapons through microtransactions. This model is widely recognized in popular multiplayer titles like ‘Fortnite’ and ‘Call of Duty: Warzone 2’. However, games like ‘Destiny 2’ show that even titles with narrative campaigns can adapt to this trend.

Despite the original announcement presenting ‘Wonder Woman’ as an open-world, single-player action game filled with original narrative content, neither Monolith nor Warner Bros. Games mentioned any live service elements until now.

## Warner Bros.’s Strategy Shift

The speculation surrounding the game’s structure is bolstered by recent remarks from Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav, who on November 8th, emphasized the company’s ambition to transform their high-profile gaming franchises by incorporating “more permanent play through online services, cross-platform and free-to-play extensions,” aiming to significantly broaden their audience’s engagement across multiple platforms.

## ‘Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League’ Leading the Change

Similarly, ‘Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League’ which was initially perceived as a story-driven title with optional co-op gameplay, has been confirmed to be adopting a game-as-a-service model, necessitating constant internet connectivity.

## Awaiting Confirmation from Warner Bros. Games

While the job posting doesn’t set anything in stone, it has raised questions and anticipation about the upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ game. In response, IGN has reached out to Warner Bros. Games for an official statement.

## Initial Game Announcement

Initially announced in December 2021 with an intriguing teaser trailer, the ‘Wonder Woman’ game was described as a single-player open-world action-adventure, promising players an exhilarating quest to harmonize the worlds of the Amazons and the modern human society.

With fans eagerly expecting to step into the shoes of the beloved Amazonian warrior, the latest news of likely live service elements has stirred the gaming community. Whether the move will enhance or diminish the traditional gaming experience, remains to be seen.
