Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has reportedly been delayed again. According to Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier, WB Games has pushed back its upcoming DC Comics looter shooter from its May 26 launch date to sometime “later this year.” The news comes after a recent PlayStation showcase of the title, which was poorly received by fans, due to developer Rocksteady Studios pivoting to a live-service model, rather than the single-player Batman storylines they are known for. However, Schreier’s source confirmed that the delay was related to bug fixes and guaranteed launch polish, and fan backlash would not affect core gameplay.


For what it’s worth, this reported delay like this is good for Rocksteady’s latest, which was well on its way to taking on the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (May 12), Street Fighter 6 ( June 2) and Diablo IV (June 6). The delay rids Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League of any major competition and lets it shine in a safer place. The game was originally supposed to be released last year, but was delayed by optimization reasons. Last month’s State of Play presentation confirmed the suspicions and leaks, which suggested the game featured some sort of battle pass system and menu items aligned with a live service title. All unlocks will be purely cosmetic, and Rocksteady promises to continue supporting the game long after launch by introducing new playable characters, missions, and weapons. The studio says the new content will be available at no additional cost. There are also no loot boxes.

In Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, you choose from four key Task Force X characters – Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn and King Shark – and go on a mission to thwart members of the Justice League who have succumbed to mind control by Brainiac. While a four-player co-op system takes center stage, the game can also be played in single-player mode, while the remaining team is taken care of by AI/bots. However, the game’s FAQ page has confirmed that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will require a continuously working internet connection. This means that even if you choose to play alone, the game simply won’t launch unless it detects an internet connection. It looks strong on the co-op front though, even offering full cross-platform support at launch. While a PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold membership is not required to run the game on console, it will be required for online co-op.

For the uninitiated, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League takes place in the Arkhamverse, unlike another co-op title released by WB Games Gotham Knights, which dropped last year. In addition to the core content, this game was severely lacking in optimization, causing performance issues on PC while the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X versions were locked at 30fps.

That said, WB Games’ first title of 2023, Hogwarts Legacy was a huge success, selling over 12 million copies in the first two weeks of launch. An impressive milestone, considering the amount of online rhetoric it has generated regarding JK Rowling’s controversial views. Studio Avalanche Software is currently hard at work on the older-gen PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, which were recently pushed back to May 5.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set to release later this year on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series S/X.
