Rocksteady's SUICIDE SQUAD: KILL THE JUSTICE LEAGUE Reportedly Pushed Back To 2023

Fans have been eagerly anticipating Rocksteady's Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. According to a new report, however, the video game is expected to be pushed back to 2023.

It's been close to a decade since Rocksteady Studios' last DC-set game, Batman: Arkham Knight, was released. Now, the studio is gearing up for another foray into the DC Universe via Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The game will put players in control of Task Force X, as they try their best to take down a Justice League who's being mind-controlled by Brainiac.

The game was announced in August of 2020, and was expected to be released at some point in 2022. Unfortunately, it looks like fans will have to wait longer for the game to arrive. 

According to Bloomberg, Warner Media has "quietly delayed" the game until 2023. No reason was given, and it's important to note that neither Warner Bros. nor Rocksteady Studios has released an official statement. The reported move is surprising, however, given that just in December of last year, Warner Bros. released an in-depth look at the game showing off the traversal and combat mechanics of its main characters: Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot and King Shark.

This reported delay will likely raise questions about the state of Kill the Justice League, and while the reasons behind it possibly getting pushed back are unknown, fans should keep an open mind. Assuming the delay is indeed happening and it's due to quality control or polishing, the game could end up benefitting from it.

Suicide Squad will be an open-world game, and with advancements in engine and console technology, crafting a playable environment that's large and detailed enough to meet current open-world standards requires a significant amount of time and effort. Again, assuming quality played a factor in this reported delay, it being moved to 2023 could give its developers the opportunity to polish it as much as possible. 

While we wait for the game's status to be officially addressed by Warner Bros., take a look at its synopsis, which provides a general idea of the tone and mechanics: 

"Discover the origins of Amanda Waller's infamous Task Force X (a.k.a. the Suicide Squad) as Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang and King Shark begrudgingly embark on their mission to take down the World's Greatest DC Super Heroes, The Justice League. Featuring an original narrative set within an expansive open-world city of Metropolis, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League puts the four DC Super-Villains on a collision course with an invading alien force and DC Super Heroes who are now laser-focused on destroying the city they once vowed to protect. All the while, the Suicide Squad must be mindful of the lethal explosives implanted in their heads that could go off at the first sign of defiance.

Each squad member has their own unique moveset with enhanced traversal abilities to freely explore the dynamic open-world of Metropolis, along with a variety of weapons to customize, and skills to master. Fans can tailor their experience, whether playing on their own as a single-player, or teaming up with friends in multiplayer co-op."
