  • Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is an upcoming co-op game from Rocksteady Games.
  • Rocksteady Games' last title was Batman: Arkham Knight in 2015.
  • According to Bloomberg, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is being delayed until 2023.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is reportedly delayed to 2023, according to Bloomberg. The outlet cites anonymous sources familiar with the game's development.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was first revealed back at DC Fandome in 2020, over five years after the launch of Rocksteady Games' prior title, Batman: Arkham Knight. The Suicide Squad game features players choosing between four members of the eponymous squad, tasked with hunting down seemingly-brainwashed superheroes like the Flash, Green Lantern and Superman.

Unlike Rocksteady Games' previous work on the Batman Arkham series, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League features up to four player co-op. The game was announced as targeting a 2022 release window while coming exclusively to current-generation platforms and PC. More gameplay was shown during the Game Awards 2021, where this 2022 release window was affirmed but not given an exact date.

WB Games still has a slate of upcoming titles scheduled to arrive in 2022, with TT Games' LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga aiming for April 5, 2022. Meanwhile, Gotham Knights and Hogwarts Legacy, from WB Montreal and Avalanche Software respectively, are both currently slated for sometime in 2022 after being delayed out of the previous year due to challenges in development introduced by the pandemic. Neither title has an exact release date as yet.

Somewhat amusingly, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a follow-up to the Arkham games, while Gotham Knights is not, with the latter taking place in an entirely new universe, primarily based on the Court of Owls comic book storyline.
