Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been delayed and will not release until February 2, 2024, Rocksteady Studios has confirmed. The delay isn’t too surprising, as sources told Bloomberg in early March about how Warner Bros. Games would be delaying Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League so Rocksteady could give the game, which is based on one of DC’s most popular superhero teams, more polish. Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League’s core gameplay will remain largely the same despite the controversy that Rocksteady and Warner Bros. Games received after a leak revealed the game would lean toward the GaaS (games as a service) model, according to the report.
From a Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League tweet:
WE HAVE MADE THE TOUGH BUT NECESSARY DECISION TO TAKE THE TIME NEEDED TO WORK ON GETTING THE GAME TO BE THE BEST OUALITY EXPERIENCE FOR PLAYERS. THANK YOU TO OUR AMAZING COMMUNITY FOR THE CONTINUED SUPPORI PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING. THERE IS MUCH MORE TO SHARE IN THE MONTHS AHEAD AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN YEAR.
From a Bloomberg report (alternate link):
Suicide Squad was showcased during a PlayStation event in February but received criticism from fans due to its service elements, such as purchasable cosmetics and a requirement to play online.
The delay is necessary mostly to fix bugs and improve aspects of the game that were lagging behind and won’t overhaul much of the core gameplay that had led to the backlash, the person said, asking not to be named discussing information that isn’t public.
