Could Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Be Delayed Until 2024?
- 15 Mar 2023
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is the next highly anticipated project from the renowned studio Rocksteady. After eight years since their last major game, Batman: Arkham Knight, there is a good chance that the release of Suicide Squad could be delayed for years. This news has been hinted at by Jeff Grubb, a highly knowledgeable games journalist, in a recent episode of his podcast. But what does this mean for the game, and is it really the best decision?
In the episode of Grubb’s Game Mess podcast, he revealed that the release of Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League could be postponed all the way to 2024 - as opposed to earlier rumors from Jason Schreier, which suggested an end of 2023. Despite being officially set for May 26, 2023, this new information suggests that Rocksteady is indeed having trouble with the game.
Judging by the response to the recent gameplay demo, a delay could be the best decision. Reports claimed that the developers did not intend to change the gameplay and network elements but just needed more time to polish the project. However, giving them an additional year or more to devote to the work, especially to change the heavily criticized elements, could be a good move.
However, this will not be the first delay for Rocksteady's ambitious title. After multiple delays and rumors, the project was initially supposed to be released in 2020. In addition, the studio's struggle has led to some big changes in personnel at the top. Studio director Sefton Hill left his post in the spring of 2019 and was replaced by Mark and Des.
In conclusion, although the reports of a possible 2024 release for Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League are worrying, a delay might be the best decision for Rocksteady. With an additional year or more for the project, the game may receive the changes it deserves and become the great title we were promised. Let's hope the studio will be able to deliver.
