Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League delayed to February 2024

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been delayed yet again. In a tweet, developer Rocksteady Studios confirmed that its upcoming DC Comics looter-shooter has been pushed back to a February 2, 2024 release date. Reports last month suggested the game was delayed until later this year, following fan reaction to a PlayStation State of Play event for the game, showcasing detailed gameplay and a live service model. But it looks like the team needs a lot more time to ensure a polished experience at launch. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was originally slated for release on May 26 and will now arrive nine months later – which at first might seem like a long time for Polish, but according to Bloomberg games reporter Jason Schreier, it’s “in normal these days.” .”

“We have made the difficult but necessary decision to take the time necessary to ensure that the game is the best quality experience for players,” the statement from Rocksteady Studios reads. “Thank you to our amazing community for their continued support, patience and understanding.” The developer added that there’s a lot more to share in the coming months, but as mentioned earlier, there won’t be any changes to the core mechanics. For the uninitiated, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League featured raw gameplay last month, with elements aligned to a live service game and battle pass system, which the studio says will only unlock cosmetic items. Given that the game has you playing as members of Task Force X – Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, and King Shark – it was also odd that they were all equally equipped with guns, instead of have unique kits and movesets.

The generally negative reception stems from the outdated design ethos and history of Rocksteady, which is known for crafting single-player narratives based on the Batman mythos. The Suicide Squad game will instead focus on four-player co-op – similar to Marvel’s Avengers – although a single-player mode is also included, where your remaining squad is taken over by bots. It was previously confirmed that none of these mechanics will change and the extra time will be used for bug fixing and optimization. “Nine months is not enough time to completely change the nature of a game,” said games journalist Schreier. tweeted. “People are surprised that a developer takes nine extra months to polish a game, but that’s actually normal these days. (Nine years between games: less normal.)” The latter refers to the development cycle of Rocksteady — their last project was Batman: Arkham Knight, released in 2015.

Schreier also notes that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 release in September could also have been a factor in the delay, so as not to risk direct competition. The PS5 exclusive’s release window has never been officially confirmed by Insomniac Games, but Tony Todd, the title’s Venom voice actor, revealed it last month, via Twitter. Server stability on the Suicide Squad game should also be taken into consideration as cooperation is key and you will also need a continuous internet connection. This means that even if you choose to play alone, the game simply won’t launch unless it detects an internet connection.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will now be released on February 2, 2024 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series S/X.
