Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, has been delayed until 2023, according to a Bloomberg report.
After much garnered hype, it looks like the Suicide Squad will have to wait a little bit longer.
Rocksteady's Suicide Squad delayed until 2023
Rocksteady's next DC game has been pushed back a year after initially announcing a 2022 release window. That's not all as other games also worked on by Rocksteady, namely titles based on Harry Potter, Batman and a LEGO version of Star Wars, have also been pushed back after being planned for 2021 due to production problems caused by "the pandemic and other development challenges."
First announced in 2020, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is the next big game from Warner Bros.' Rocksteady Studios. Known for their contributions in the gaming space for games such as the Arkham series of Batman video games, the studio has yet to release a major title since June of 2015 with Batman: Arkham Knight.
Rocksteady isn't the only studio to run into some struggles due to the pandemic, as many others have delayed production for some of their biggest titles in order to make up for lost time. Warner Bros. is seemingly no exception.
The first in-game footage for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League premiered at DC FanDome in 2021. This included fan-favorites such as Harly Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot, and Captain Boomerang with each character being customizable.
With a release date now seemingly pushed to 2023, it'll be eight years since the studio has released a video game. Despite the delays, fans still hold out hope we'll see the game arrive with some real quality to show for the extra development time.
