Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Delayed To February 2024

Rocksteady has officially delayed Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League to February 2, 2024, moving out its previous May 26 release date.

It doesn’t come as a surprise as the reveal in February was not positive. I’ve even spoken about it with Steve and Dave on Creature Cast regarding the gameplay and how unappealing the entire package looks.

On Twitter, Rocksteady confirmed the delay in a statement, “We have made the tough but necessary decision to take the time needed to work on getting the game to be the best quality experience for players.”

“Thank you to our amazing community for the continued support, patience, and understanding,” the statement goes on. “There is much more to share in the months ahead and we look forward to seeing you in Metropolis next year.”

This comes as Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has already been delayed out of 2022 and into 2023. The four-player co-op has had a tumultuous development cycle and while the delays are not out of the normal in the industry, much of what has been shown has been lacklustre.

Bloomberg revealed last month that Rocksteady would delay the game following the community outcry but remained silent on the topic until today.

Jason Schreier confirmed that the team was told the delay was to polish the experience and that even nine months may not be enough to turn the ‘nature of a game’ around.
