Over on Twitter, Rocksteady Studios confirmed earlier at present that Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League had been delayed until Spring 2023. You might need noticed this delay when it was beforehand reported as only a hearsay over a month in the past by Bloomberg, but it surely was formally confirmed earlier by Sefton Hill, the Inventive Director and co-founder of Rocksteady.
It’s not the primary Warner Brothers game to have its date moved, with the upcoming LEGO Star Wars and Hogwarts Legacy each lacking their unique launch home windows as nicely. “I do know a delay is irritating however that point goes into making one of the best game we will. I sit up for bringing the chaos to Metropolis collectively. Thanks to your persistence,” Hill mentioned over on Twitter. The different Warner Brothers Batman universe game Gotham Knights remains to be anticipated later this 12 months although, and is at present being developed WB Video games Montréal.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League was first introduced in 2020, with an unique launch date for 2022. The premise is, primarily, taking a gaggle of criminals who’ve been compelled collectively, and telling them to kill DC’s strongest superheroes the one manner they understand how: with horrible jokes and violence. Based on Sefton Hill, it’s a continuation of the identical world from Rocksteady’s Arkham video games, however now with co-op and a man who makes use of a boomerang for some cause.
It has been virtually seven years for the reason that final Rocksteady game (excluding Batman: Arkham VR). Whereas there’s tons of potential causes for a delay, together with however not restricted to a world pandemic, it’s a bit unhappy. Nonetheless, I might a lot relatively wait if it means making it simpler for the dev crew. Provides me extra time to work on my Jared Leto Joker impression.
