It’s been years since we first got a look at Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, and fans were relieved when we finally got the release date for May.
As it turns out, the game could be facing another delay. As per Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, WB and Rocksteady have opted to push the game back even further in the year after the recent showcase yielded some negative feedback from fans.
While some think that the developers could be changing the core gameplay though, Schreier emphasizes that this short delay could only mean a polish of the game with the core gameplay intact. If they decided to overhaul the whole thing, we could be looking at a release sometime in 2024.
Delays aren’t always well-received by fans, but if Cyberpunk 2077 has taught the industry anything, it’s that a game is better received late and completed than on time and incomplete. Plus, the delay also pushes the Suicide Squad game away from other huge game drops like the next Final Fantasy title and the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Then again, the status of Suicide Squad’s delay isn’t official yet, so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens. With the ridiculous hype surrounding the game though, I can imagine there’s a lot of pressure for Rocksteady to deliver, especially since it’s been a while since the release of their last Arkham game.
For now, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League still has its release date of May 26 for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5.
