As Warner Bros. shifts its focus to the games as a service model, a new job listing suggests that Monolith Productions' Wonder Woman title may include live service elements.

The details:

  • As discovered by Wccftech, a new job listing for a "Lead Software Engineer, Gameplay" at Monolith points to the game potentially including a controversial live service structure. It is preferred that candidates have previous experience "helping maintain a live software product or game," according to the listings' "nice to have" section, and while this isn't confirmation of its inclusion, it certainly wouldn't be a surprise.

  • During a recent earnings call, Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav stated that the company intends to turn its most popular media franchises, including Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, DC, and Mortal Kombat, into "always on" live service games. The company sees live service titles as a "significant opportunity to generate greater post-purchase revenue" by keeping players coming back for new content, according to Zaslav.

  • Fans have reacted unfavorably to the possibility of a live service release, pointing out that previous attempts to make superhero games always online haven't worked out too well, with Marvel's Avengers shutting down this year and Rocksteady's Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League being so poorly received that it was delayed to address some of its glaring issues.
