Is it a bird An airplane? No, it’s Superman in Unreal Engine 5! A creative fan creates a little tech demo and shows what a Superman game could look like today. So, we’re not talking about the cute Lego games, but rather something like the full-blown Spiderman games on PlayStation.
So, realistic graphics and a real open world that we can fly through with our superpowers as we wish. In just eight seconds of video, Reddit user Tjatomica awakens in us the urgent desire to play as Superman in Metropolis right away. Check out the demo:

We can easily imagine the rest of the gameplay of a modern Superman game. Prevent accidents, accomplish heroic deeds, distribute steel nuts to the bad guys, look really good in pajamas. What a supernatural hero does all day long.
We are not alone with this request, the short teaser generates a strong response from fans. Almost 100,000 upvotes and 3,000 comments are a huge hit on Reddit.
What happened to Superman games?
The closest we got to a new Superman game was when a title was in development at either Rocksteady or WB Montreal. However, this game was discontinued before an announcement was made. Instead, WB Montreal announced the co-op title Gotham Knights.
So there is still no trace of a new Superman game that is currently in development. Therefore, there is currently no evidence that DC will bring the steely man back to the home PC in the near future.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League mit Cinematic-Trailer angekündigt
At least not as a playable hero: Batman makers Rocksteady Studios are developing a Suicide Squad game. The trailer above shows Superman being targeted as an opponent.
Do you want a Superman game or can the man of steel stay stolen from you?
