According to Jason Schreier of Bloomberg, WB Games has apparently postponed the release of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The release date of the DC Comics looter-shooter game, which was initially scheduled for May 26, has been postponed until an unspecified time later this year. Despite criticism from fans over developer Rocksteady Studios’ decision to switch to a live-service model instead of their customary single-player Batman tales, the delay is reportedly caused by bug fixes and guaranteeing a flawless debut. The primary gameplay, according to reports, won’t be impacted by the delay or user reviews.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League’s rumoured delay may possibly be to its advantage since it was originally expected to compete with high-profile games like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Street Fighter 6, and Diablo IV. The postponement gives the game a safer launch window and takes it out of direct competition. The game was originally supposed to come out in 2020, but it was postponed for optimization purposes. A battle pass system and menu features resembling those of live-service games were confirmed by the latest State of Play conference, and all unlocks would be completely aesthetic. In addition, Rocksteady Studios guarantees that it will continue to support the game without charging further fees once it has launched by adding new playable characters, objectives, and weaponry.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will have four major characters, including Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, and King Shark, and will require an online connection to play, even in single mode, according to the game’s FAQ website. Players must stop the Justice League members who have been brainwashed by Brainiac in the game’s four-player cooperative mode. Additionally, the game promises to add free additional content including playable characters, quests, and weaponry as well as complete cross-platform support from launch. For console play, a PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold membership is not necessary, but it is for online co-op.
ontrary to another co-op game from WB Games, Gotham Knights, which was launched last year, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League takes place in the Arkhamverse for those who may not be aware. On the other hand, optimization flaws in Gotham Knights caused performance concerns on PC, while the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X versions could only support 30 frames per second. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is slated for release on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series S/X later this year.
