Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will release in 2022 no more.
Anyone got a time machine to get to 2023? Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League creative director Sefton Hill took to Twitter to confirm that the DC game won’t be making its 2022 release. Instead, the game will fly into store shelves in the Spring of 2023. A delay was previously reported earlier this year, though nothing had been confirmed at the time.
No explicit reason was mentioned for the delay though one can imagine the work-from-home nature that was adopted due to the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted goals.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be Rocksteady’s first game in 8 years if they stick to the 2023 timeline. Their last major release was Batman: Arkham Knight, which graced the last generation of consoles in 2015. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which will feature heavy co-op mechanics, is set in the same Arkham universe.
Here is the synopsis for Rocksteady Studios’ last game, Batman: Arkham Knight:
In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever. Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady’s uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.
Batman: Arkham Knight is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, while Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is currently scheduled to arrive in 2022.
