Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League delayed to 2024

Rocksteady describes the decision as tough, but necessary in order to provide 'the best quality experience for players.'


Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has had a rocky go of it when it comes to pinning down a release date. Originally, the game was set to be released in 2022 before being delayed to May 26, 2023. Earlier in March of this year, reports began to emerge suggesting the game could end up being delayed yet again.

While not explicitly confirmed at that time, the news of another potential delay didn’t come as much of a surprise given the less than stellar reception the extended gameplay demo received after its showing during February’s State of Play.

This rumored delay has now been confirmed by Rocksteady, with the game’s release officially being pushed back to 2024. On the social media accounts for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, the following was noted in regards to the reason for the game’s latest delay:

For those unfamiliar, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a third-person shooter, action-adventure game being developed by Rocksteady Studios, the team who previously worked on the acclaimed Batman: Arkham series.

On the Steam page for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, it’s noted that the game allows players to “discover the origins of Amanda Waller’s infamous Task Force X (a.k.a. the Suicide Squad) as Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark begrudgingly embark on their mission to take down the World’s Greatest DC Super Heroes, The Justice League.”
