In the latest report from Bloomberg, Warner Bros. has quietly delayed the upcoming Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League from Rocksteady.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was announced back in August 2020 with a 2022 release date in mind and is Rocksteady’s first new game in years since working on the Batman: Arkham games.
No official reason has been given for the delay but sources tell Bloomberg that it could be related to production problems caused by the pandemic and other development challenges. Last week, Warner Media CEO Jason Kilar spoke about his team’s goal of “delivering of a full slate of highly anticipated games,” including Hogwarts Legacy and Gotham Knights, there was no mention of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
The upcoming title will feature a four-player co-op mode and can also be played solo with the player being able to switch between Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, and King Shark at any moment.
The game is just one of two titles that WB has in the works set in the DC universe, the other being WB Games Montreal’s Gotham Knights, which is currently set for a 2022 release.
