Publisher Warner Bros. has stated that the in-development Wonder Woman game won’t be a live service.
A software engineer job listing at Monolith Productions, the team currently working on the Wonder Woman game, sparked some confusion recently, as it mentioned that the applicant would be responsible for “helping maintain a live software product or game.”
While this led various outlets to speculate that Wonder Woman may include live service elements, Warner Bros. offered a statement to IGN that should put worried minds at ease. “Wonder Woman is a single-player action-adventure game set in a dynamic open world,” the statement reads “This third-person experience will allow players to become Diana of Themyscira and introduce an original story set in the DC Universe, while also featuring the Nemesis System. Wonder Woman is not being designed as a live service.”

The current industry shift toward live service titles has led to many baffling decisions and releases, with DC’s own Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League coming under fire after a showing at the PlayStation State of Play earlier this year lifted the lid on the game’s live service systems and loot-based gameplay.
