Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Has Been Delayed ‘Till Next Year

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League

The Suicide Squad won’t be taking on Brainiac until 2024, with Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League being delayed again.

We might be tempted to write this off as developer Rocksteady wanting to add more polish, or dodge crunch, but there’s more to this Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League delay than that. Already delayed several times, the game has come in for some criticism, particularly since the release of this developer trailer.

It may seem odd that this action game can’t be played offline, particularly since it’s got a full single-player campaign. But, going by what Rocksteady has revealed, it has heavy, heavy “games as a service” elements. And, even without those elements, it seems like a rather generic third person looter-shooter.

Sure, watching a trailer isn’t the same as going hands on with a game but reception for the game, originally set for a May release, has been pretty lacklustre. There were rumblings it was going to be delayed and now Rocksteady and WB Games have confirmed that.

“”We have made the tough but necessary decision to take the time needed to work on getting the game to be the best quality experience for players,” reads a statement Tweeted out via the game’s official Twitter account.

Whether the live service elements will still be present when the game arrives next year is anyone’s guess. Rocksteady will be revealing more information down the line though we’re hoping, at least, the online requirement is removed. Yes, the game supports co-op but we can’t think of a single, non-microtransaction-related reason it has to be always online.

After being delayed, the new release date for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set to be February 2nd, 2024. That’s eight extra months for Rocksteady to bring the game up to scratch. We have our fingers crossed for Harley Quinn and company.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
