"I know a delay is frustrating but that time is going into making the best game we can"

Creative director and co-founder of Rocksteady Studios Sefton Hill has announced that Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League has been delayed to spring 2023.

Announcing the news via Hill’s personal Twitter account, the director wrote: “We’ve made the difficult decision to delay Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League to spring 2023. I know a delay is frustrating but that time is going into making the best game we can. I look forward to bringing the chaos to Metropolis together. Thanks for your patience.”

Formally revealed in 2020, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League has had a planned release year of 2022 since its announcement. The last we saw of the game was at last year’s The Game Awards, where a gameplay trailer was shown off.

While the trailer did show off some gameplay, a good portion of it was from camera angles that likely won’t be used in the finished game. There has not been a full gameplay demo shown off since its announcement. Though when the gameplay trailer was released, Rocksteady did confirm a 2022 release was still on track.

A report from last month rightly claimed that the game had been quietly delayed to 2023, according to sources familiar with the game’s development.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is set in the same universe as the Batman: Arkham games, but features the characters Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang as playable characters tasked with taking down the Justice League. The game will be an open-world third person shooter set in Metropolis.

In other news, a patch for Elden Ring has put a stop to hackers breaking players’ save files. Prior to the patch, an exploit was in the game that allowed PC players to hack another player’s save file, causing them to infinitely spawn in an invalid area of the world, resulting in a permanent in-game death cycle.
