Bad news would be on the way for fans eagerly awaiting the premiere of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The Rocksteady Studios game would delay its release again, indicate different reports. And in the worst case, the wait could be extended until 2024.
The news is truly striking, especially since this game was one of the ones that got a lot of attention in the last event State of play from PlayStation. There, finally, we could see in greater detail the gameplay of this new proposal, especially the one corresponding to the cooperative mode for up to 4 players.
Nevertheless, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League it would be facing inconveniences that would force a new postponement of its release date. Bloomberg reports via Jason Schreier that the developers would need more time to fix bugs and improve other aspects of the game. However, the issues would not affect the core of the gameplay, so the launch delay it would only be for a few months. Thus, the title would still have a chance to arrive within the 2023 calendar, despite failing to meet the scheduled date of May 26.
The other scenario that is handled is less encouraging. According to Jeff Grubb of Giant Bomb, we will not see Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League until 2024. “I don’t want to cause panic or anything like that. But what I heard is that it will not even arrive this year, but in 2024. This is an important delay, even bigger than what is being said, “she assured.
Will we have to wait until 2024 to try Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League?
The panorama related to the new video game of suicide squad doesn’t look too encouraging. Let us remember that, beyond what could be seen from the gameplay in the recent State of playThe public reaction has not been the best. The most notorious criticism against the title is that to play it it will be mandatory to be permanently connected to the internet, even in single player mode. In addition, it has been confirmed that it will incorporate “game as a service” elements, such as a battle pass that will allow you to purchase cosmetic items.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League it was announced in August 2020, with a view to an original release in 2022. However, in March of last year Rocksteady confirmed that the game would arrive only in spring 2023, although without explaining why. “I know a delay is frustrating, but that time will be spent making the best game we can,” Sefton Hill, the studio’s creative director, had said at the time.
The confirmation of the premiere for next May 26 had brought a lot of excitement to the players, but the rumors of a new delay leave it on the floor again. Of course you still have to wait that the news is confirmed or denied by the developers, but as the old saying goes: If the river makes a noise its because water is running.
“I think they know that most people think that what they have is bad enough. […] And if they feel that right now the game is not ready yet, maybe they can correct it with a delay of almost a year. Although it also feels like this game was a bad idea from the start,” said Jeff Grubb.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League puts players in the shoes of members of the Suicide Squad —Harley Quinn, King Shark, Captain Boomerang and Deadshot—, who must face the Justice League. The striking thing about this proposal is that the DC heroes are the villains, since they are under the control of Brainiac. The game will be released on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC, although we don’t know yet if it will be this year or next.
