Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Delayed to next year

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has officially been delayed to Spring 2023, confirming previous reports.

Creative director Sefton Hill tweeted to confirm what we’d already heard, but added a Spring release window to narrow down when we’ll finally get to see the co-op action game’s long-awaited release.

“I know a delay is frustrating,” Hill wrote, “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.”

The delay will mean that the Suicide Squad game will likely arrive almost eight years after Rocksteady’s last major console game, Batman: Arkham Knight, and seven after its last game overall, Batman: Arkham VR. It’s a major slowdown in releases for Rocksteady, which made and released the entire mainline Arkham series within 8 years (having started working on Batman: Arkham Asylum in 2007).

After years of leaks and rumours, Rocksteady announced it was working on a Suicide Squad game in 2020. Set in the Arkham game universe, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be an open world co-op action game that allows up to four players to play as Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot, and Captain Boomerang. The assembled supervillains will be sent to Metropolis to take down what appear to be corrupted versions of Superman, The Flash, and more classic DC heroes.

Originally, the game was set for a 2022 release, but a Bloomberg report earlier this year pointed to a delay. No reason has been given for the pushback, but publisher Warner Bros. Interactive already has LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Hogwarts Legacy, and Gotham Knights scheduled for release this year, after all three were delayed themselves.
