Rocksteady Delays Suicide Squad Game to February 2024

Looks like the reception of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League hasn’t been as good as many hoped it would be. Rocksteady Studios recently showcased their upcoming game based on Suicide Squad at the February 2023 PlayStation State of Play the past few months, showing off various gameplay elements and more. The reaction to it was very mixed among some players and outright negative from others. But it looks like that may have influenced Rocksteady’s decision to delay the game even more than before. It might be a while before we see this game now.

In a Twitter post by Rocksteady on the official account for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, the studio announced that it will be delaying the release of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League until February 2024. They cited the delay as due to taking the extra time to make sure that the quality of the game is the best quality for players.

“…There is much more to share in the months ahead, and we look forward to seeing you in Metropolis next year.” Rocksteady Studios retweeted the posting on their own company Twitter page after the post went out. While some have shared empathy and appreciation for taking the extra time to finish the game, others were more indifferent about it. Many were quick to point out that the reaction to the gameplay shown at the February State of Play may have played a big factor in the company’s decision to delay the game, with some stating that their initial impression was not very good. A big point of contention was the inclusion of live-service elements, including a battle pass that was shown in the menus of the game.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a game where you’ll be able to control various members of the infamous villain-led sent on a mission to take down members of the Justice League. The recent trailers and gameplay showcase gave players a look at what characters will show up and how each member of the Justice League has gone rogue and wreaked havoc on Metropolis.

For many DC fans, this game is also important for a very different reason. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League also has the final performance of the late Kevin Conroy, who was the iconic voice of Batman for many DC hero projects, including Rocksteady’s Batman Arkham series. One trailer for the game revealed that before his untimely death, Kevin was able to play Batman one last time for the game, saying his most iconic line for the character. Fans of Batman and those interested in Rocksteady’s new game will have to wait longer before they can finally get their hands on it. Whether this delay will help out the game or not is anyone’s guess. We’ll have to wait until February 2024 to find out.
