SUICIDE SQUAD: KILL THE JUSTICE LEAGUE Could Be Pushed To 2024; Still No Announcement From Rocksteady

An update on the status of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League from reporter Jason Schreier speculates that the multiplayer action game from Rocksteady could now be pushed to 2024.

Earlier this month, a report from Bloomberg's Jason Schreier claimed that Warner Bros. had delayed Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. At the time, neither the publisher nor developer Rocksteady confirmed the delay, but a source close to the situation revealed that the delay would allow for bug fixes and polish. The source didn't offer a new release date, but a late 2023 launch was expected.

Schreier offered a follow-up to his initial report, acknowledging that Rocksteady has still not announced the delay while speculating that it could be because "there's still no release date."  According to Schreier, the staff was told about the delay "a few weeks ago," but even they don't know the new launch date. He then speculated that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League could slip into 2024.

Report of the delay caught many off guard as Rocksteady had just offered fans a deep dive into the gameplay for Suicide Squad at Sony's State of Play event. The gameplay was met with mixed reception, though most of the criticism was directed toward the game's live-service approach. An always-online requirement, gear score, battle pass system and cosmetic microtransactions were just some of the elements fans found disappointing.

Some were also disappointed that the combat revolved mostly around shooting mechanics that appeared similar between each of the playable characters. Schreier reinforced that the delay will not change the core game, but will instead focus on polishing areas that need it.

Developed by Rocksteady, the studio behind the acclaimed Batman: Arkham series, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a multiplayer shooter that lets you play as the four members of the titular team of super-criminals: Deadshot, Harley Quinn, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang. Assembled by Amanda Waller, the team is sent into Metropolis to stop the alien invader Brainiac who has also brainwashed and possessed members of the Justice League.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League had an initial 2022 launch window that was delayed to early 2023. It was then given a release date of May 26, 2023, which is still the current date shown on the game's official website. When it does release, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
