Rocksteady has announced that it has delayed Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League to ‘Spring 2023’.
Until now, we were under the impression that Suicide Squad would release sometime in 2022. However, earlier this year Jason Schreier reported that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment had quietly delayed the game to 2023.
The news was officially announced on Rocksteady co-founder Sefton Hill’s Twitter account. The tweet reads: “We’ve made the difficult decision to delay Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League to Spring 2023.
“I know a delay is frustrating but that time is going into making the best game we can. I look forward to bringing the chaos to Metropolis together. Thanks for your patience.”
So it looks like Schreier’s initial report was true. The game will be launching in Spring 2023 for PC, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. Rocksteady does not have any plans to develop a last-gen version either.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is set in the same universe as the Batman Arkham games. It’s a four-player co-op game where you control King Shark, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang and Deadshot as they embark on a mission to stop Brainiac and the brainwashed Superman, Flash and Green Lantern.
Warner Bros. has a busy roster on its plate for the next year. Other DC games in development include Gotham Knights, due for release in October, as well as a Wonder Woman game. DC characters will also make an appearance in MultiVersus, the fighting game.
