Freedom Fighters: The Ray is going to be linked to the live-action Flash/Arrow TV series.

More info from SDCC.

At San Diego Comic-Con, preview night fans who turned up in Ballroom 20 were treated to a brief reveal of what's in store for the next DC animated series coming to the CW Seed. A few minutes of footage from DC's Freedom Fighters: The Ray were shown, and it's certainly occupying a different place in the Multiverse than any of the other CW superhero offerings. [. . .]

When DC's Freedom Fighters: The Ray was first announced, comic fans may have noted that the Freedom Fighters team come from a very specific world in DC's Multiverse, one in which the Nazis won World War II. As a result, Uncle Sam and his team, which includes The Human Bomb, Phantom Lady, Black Condor, and The Ray, are liberty's last line of defense on a planet that doesn't have much of it to spare. [. . .]

DC's Freedom Fighters: The Ray doesn't shy away from any of that. One of the first images in the footage shown is swastika banners being carried by futuristic Nazis. The Ray and the rest of the Freedom Fighters (I believe I spotted Red Tornado in there along with Phantom Lady and the others) are in the process of taking them on, but they have to deal with a rival team of superhumans: Arrow, Flash, and Supergirl, all of whom are working for the Nazis, and have costumes to match.
