Kill the Justice League after Fan Backlash
Give the squad more time to prepare.
After the negative reaction the game received at the recent State of Play Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, it has been delayed. Warner Bros. announced on March 9, 2023 that it would push back the original May 26, 2023 release date to an unknown date later this year.
This news comes via Bloomberg, citing an unnamed source. Some of the opposition to the game likely stems from the announcement in late February that the game would require a constant internet connection even when played solo, although that’s only speculation at this point.
This isn’t the first time Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been delayed, either. The game was originally slated to release last year before being pushed back to the date we previously knew was announced at the 2022 Game Awards.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set five years after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight and centers on a conspiracy that has seen Brainiac invade Earth and take direct control of Metropolis. His efforts to take over the planet include brainwashing most of the Justice League’s heroes, including Superman and Batman. With the latter, this game will mark the late Kevin Conroy’s final appearance as the Caped Crusader.
Led by Amanda Waller, Task Force X (known as the Suicide Squad) has invaded Metropolis on a covert mission. Gameplay shown during the State of Play revealed a boss fight involving Flash as the team attempts to rescue Lex Luthor in order to gain a foothold in the battle against Brainiac.
Rocksteady Studios has a proven track record of making games set in the DC Universe, but it’s still hard to guess what changes this new delay could bring.
