Although Rocksteady’s next game, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, is still scheduled for a May release, it has been rumored that its release date has been pushed back. It appears that the delay will occur, although no official explanation has been given.
Bloomber’s Jason Schreier reported the delay on Twitter, saying that a new release date has not been given. A few weeks ago, the team was promised that the game would be released later in 2023, but now it looks like the release date could be pushed back to 2024.
The game’s core hasn’t changed despite the delay, so it will be fascinating to see how Rocksteady responds to the complaints, which mainly revolved around the game’s unoriginal gameplay and its reliance on live service aspects.
Delays are nothing new for Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which had been planned for release in 2022. Next, a May 26 release date for PC and current-gen consoles was confirmed; however, according to reports, Warner Bros.
Games and Rocksteady pushed back the release date after seeing the reaction to the game’s initial gameplay footage. The story and idea of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League appear to be on point, making them the most engaging parts of the game.
It’s a shame that the gameplay appears to be so uninteresting, though. Play as members of the Suicide Squad as you try to stop Brainiac from enslaving the planet and destroying the Justice League.
