Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has reportedly been delayed until sometime next year.
This report comes from Jason Schreier of Bloomberg, who cites the news comes from those familiar with the game’s development. A specific reason for the delay was not given, and Warner Bros. (the publisher) has yet to officially comment on this delay allegation.
WarnerMedia’s chief executive officer Jason Kilar tweeted last week that Warner would be releasing a “full slate of highly anticipated games” in 2022. This includes games like the Harry Potter RPG Hogwarts Legacy and Gotham Knights. Of course, the tweet did not mention the Suicide Squad.
Suicide Squad was announced a few years back in 2020. Rocksteady’s last game, Batman: Arkham Knight, released seven years in 2015. When Suicide Squad is eventually released, players will be able to take on numerous roles as villains, as they try to subdue heroes who have been brainwashed by Brainiac. A first glimpse at Suicide Squad’s gameplay was seen at The Game Awards 2021.
