Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is still officially on schedule for 26th May, but reliable Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier insists it’s been delayed. Apparently, staff have been told internally that the title will come out later this year, and the reason nothing’s been announced yet is because Rocksteady is still trying to decide on a new release date. There’s a possibility it could slip into 2024.
The delay is likely due to polish, but publisher Warner Bros will not have been able to ignore the disastrous feedback to the release’s recent State of Play re-reveal. Among a multitude of issues, the loudest criticisms were pointed at the title’s lacklustre gameplay loop – which seemed to centre on shooting purple orbs – and an unnecessary emphasis on gear score.
