Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League, the upcoming game by Rocksteady, has reportedly been ‘quietly’ delayed to 2023. The report comes from Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier. The game was one of the most highly-anticipated titles of the year and marks the return of Rocksteady, as Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League is the first game for the studio since 2015’s Batman Arkham Knight.
Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League takes place in the same universe as previous Rocksteady titles, the Arkhamverse. As the name might suggest, it follows the story of Amanda Waller’s squad of supervillains as they take on the Justice League, who are under the control of supervillain Brainiac.
There has not been an official announcement from WarnerMedia or Rocksteady, so the game is still slated for release in 2022, as revealed during The Game Awards trailer.
Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League Might Be Coming Out in 2023 Now
WB Games has a number of major AAA games lined up for the year, including the likes of Hogwarts Legacy and Gotham Knights. The latter follows the story of the Bat-Family after the ‘death’ of Bruce Wayne as they take on the Court of Owls.
The game will not be taking place in the Arkhamverse and is a standalone title with all-new lore. The game will be developed by WB Games Montreal, the studio behind Batman: Arkham Origins.
Hogwarts Legacy is among the most highly anticipated titles of the year, taking place in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. So it’s safe to say, WarnerMedia might not be looking to stretch themselves too thin with all these major releases, so perhaps delaying Suicide Squad Kills the Justice League might be a smart move.
Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League, when it does eventually come out, will be available on Xbox Series X/S, PC, and PS5.
