Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League recently shared an extended look at their gameplay a couple weeks ago during Sony’s State of Play.
At this point, the game’s release date was already the announced as of May 26, 2023, so it was seemingly prime to finally launch.
However, according to sources (via Bloomberg), it appears the game will be seeing yet another delay. Previously it was set for 2022 before being delayed to the current date listed above.
According to the source, the delay is mainly to fix up some bugs and general polish. It’s not expected to make any massive changes to the core gameplay, which might disappoint some after learning of the game’s battle pass and online requirements.
Currently this news isn’t yet public or official and only is reported via the anonymous sources with Bloomberg. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League’s website still lists the original launch date as of this writing.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
Jump into Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, the genre-defying, action-adventure third-person shooter in development from Rocksteady Studios, creators of the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham series. This title combines the studio’s signature character-driven story gameplay with third-person shooter action to deliver a gaming experience unlike any other.
Discover the origins of Amanda Waller’s infamous Task Force X (aka the Suicide Squad) as Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang and King Shark begrudgingly embark on their mission to take down the World’s Greatest DC Super Heroes, The Justice League. Featuring an original narrative set within an expansive open-world city of Metropolis, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League puts the four DC Super-Villains on a collision course with an invading alien force and DC Super Heroes who are now laser-focused on destroying the city they once vowed to protect. All the while, the Suicide Squad must be mindful of the lethal explosives implanted in their heads that could go off at the first sign of defiance.
Each squad member has their own unique moveset with enhanced traversal abilities to freely explore the dynamic open-world of Metropolis, along with a variety of weapons to customize, and skills to master. Fans can tailor their experience, whether playing on their own as a single-player, or teaming up with friends in multiplayer co-op.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will now be expected to launch some time in 2023 across Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X.
