What you need to know

  • After reports that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League had been delayed to next year, developer Rocksteady officially confirmed it.
  • Squad: Kill the Justice League will now launch sometime in Spring 2023, though no exact release date was given.
  • The game takes place in the Arkham universe after the Justice League has seemingly fallen under control of Brainiac.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League won't be releasing this year after all. Reports from last month indicated that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League would be delayed to 2023, and now Rocksteady has officially confirmed it.

Rocksteady Games creative director Sefton Hill posted on Twitter that the team made the "difficult decision to delay Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League to Spring 2023." You can read his full statement below, where he thanks fans for their patience.

While fans need to wait a bit longer to play the game, Rocksteady unveiled its story trailer at DC Fandome 2021, giving people a good look at what they can expect when it finally releases. It appears that Brainiac has taken over Metropolis and everyone's favorite superheroes. Amanda Waller authorizes the Suicide Squad — consisting of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang in the game — to take out the Justice League before any more harm is done.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will feature four-player co-op, but it can also be played solo with the remaining members of the team being controlled by AI.

Oddly enough, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League takes place in the same universe as the Batman Arkham franchise, also developed by Rocksteady. WB Games' other DC property, Gotham Knights, despite taking place in Gotham, won't be connected to the Arkham series. Gotham Knights is set to release this year after being delayed out of 2021.
