Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Could Still Release This Year, Core Game Not Changing – Rumor
Following significant backlash to its live service and gameplay mechanics, Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been postponed again. Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier first broke the rumor, with Windows Central’s Jez Corden hearing it would launch in Q4 2023. Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb heard it could slide to 2024.
Schreier has provided an update on Twitter and noted the lack of an official announcement about the delay “maybe because there is still no new date.” The staff were told several weeks ago that it would launch this year, “but they still don’t know when. It may be slipping to 2024, but one thing seems certain: the core game is not changing.”
With the amount of time it would take to overhaul so many mechanics, it seemed a given that this delay was more for a polish. Of course, Rocksteady could also use the extra time to tune rewards and make the game less grindy, while the backlash dies down. A Fall/Winter release is also more profitable for titles, so this could work in its favor.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League coming to Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. Head here for more details.
Rocksteady has yet to announce the Suicide Squad delay, perhaps because there is still no new date. Staff were told a few weeks ago that it was coming later this year but they still don’t know when. It may be slipping to 2024, but one thing seems certain: the core game doesn’t change
