A new report says that Rocksteady's Suicide Squad game has been delayed -- it looks like you'll have to wait until 2023 to play Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was first announced all the way back in the summer of 2020. Not much was known about the game at the time save for a logo for the game and an image featuring Superman. This game would be the first new title from Rocksteady since 2015's Batman: Arkham Knight.
A few months later, a trailer was released that was jam-packed with easter eggs. We've had few hints about the game's development since then, but it looks like that's all changed as of today -- Bloomberg reports (via Reddit) that the Suicide Squad game has been pushed back a year.
According to the Bloomberg report, the reason for the delay is well-familiar to people in the industry: a combination of challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic along with other generic development difficulties. Unfortunately, the report did not go into detail on the exact reasons for the delay, although it does mention that other games under the Warner Media umbrella may suffer similar delays.
When is the Suicide Squad Game Release Date?
The Suicide Squad game release date is now sometime in 2023 according to today's report from Bloomberg. A more specific release date has not yet been announced. Rocksteady Studios has not yet publicly commented on the delay; its most recent tweet congratulates one of its employees on a promotion.
For now, there's not much else to do but wait. You can add Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League to your wishlist on Steam and you can learn more about the game on its official website.
