Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Isn’t Like Gotham Knights, Internal Response Positive – Rumor
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League suffered significant backlash following its co-op gameplay demo and behind-the-scenes developer video. However, there have been rumors that WB Games and Rocksteady Studios are delaying the game to Q4 2023 or even 2024. Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier reported that the staff were told that a release could still happen this year, but “they are not know when again.”
Even if it is delayed, it is unlikely that the live service game loop will change. Interestingly, some people working on the title are said to have been “quite optimistic” about the battle and the world. VGC editor Andy Robinson was told that this is “not another one Knights of Gotham.”
“It’s interesting because some of the people I’ve talked to who work on that game have a lot of positive things to say about it, especially compared to Knights of Gotham,” he said on the VGC Podcast.
“I have been told that this is not another one Knights of Gotham, that everyone working on it is pretty optimistic about the combat loops they’ve done and the game world and things like that.” Based on all of this, Robinson said it would be “very surprising if they really rebuild it in any significant way because it sounds pretty positive.”
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League still officially releasing on May 26 for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. A delay has not been confirmed, but time will tell. Stay tuned in the meantime for more updates. In the meantime, check out our feature on what a potential delay could mean for the title.
