Developing a Superman game is complicated due to how powerful he is. Balancing his abilities is next to impossible but if someone can do this, it is definitely WB and Rocksteady. However, it is not confirmed if Rocksteady is the developer behind this new DC game. But considering their performance of the Arkham series, they are the obvious choice.

Factor 5 tried to work on a Superman game but the studio was shut down and the project had to be scrapped. While the studio came back from the dead earlier this year, it is not working on anything related to DC. If there is a new Man of Steel game in development at WB, we should hear about it sometime next year.
Rocksteady has been silent about their new projects and said nothing after the release of Batman Arkham Knight.
