After it was announced during DC FanDome in August 2020, we always knew there would be a bit of a wait for Suicide Squad Kill The Justice League. However, with a 2022 debut promised by the team behind the Batman: Arkham franchise, fans have been wondering for a while now why Rocksteady Games has kept quiet about a specific release date.
Well, now we know. As you can see in the Tweet below, the developer's founder, Sefton Hill, has confirmed the game has been pushed back to 2023.
"We've made the difficult decision to delay Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League to Spring 2023," he explains. "I know a delay is frustrating but that time is going into making the best game we can. I look forward to bringing the chaos to Metropolis together. Thanks for your patience."
This is disappointing, but also just one of those things with titles as complex and highly anticipated as this one. While we'll now be waiting a little longer to play as Harley Quinn, King Shark, Captain Boomerang, and Deadshot as they team up to fight the Justice League, we'd rather that that than the game be released in 2022 and end up a complete Cyberpunk 2077-style disaster.
"The creators of the Arkham series are back with a brand new action-adventure shooter," reads the synopsis. "The most dangerous villains in the DC Universe have been forced to team up and take on a new mission: Kill the Justice League. Create Chaos in Metropolis. You are the Suicide Squad."
