Suicide Squad Game Delay 2

The Suicide Squad game may have been quietly delayed to next year

Unconfirmed as of yet.

The Suicide Squad may have been one of DC’s more successful films, but that fan momentum may be hard to carry over to the world of video games. Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad video game was slated to release sometime in 2022, but Warner Bros has reportedly delayed the game to sometime next year. Looks like players will have to wait a little longer until they get their hands on playable King Shark or Harley Quinn.

This report comes from a story on Bloomberg, according to “people familiar with its development.” According to the story, this seems to be an ongoing issue with Warner Bros’ games, as other big projects from the Lega, Harry Potter, and Batman universes have also been pushed back from 2021. These projects were delayed with production holdups as a result of the coronavirus, so it’s likely more developmental issues are being stirred up by the pandemic as well.

The report is given more credit after a tweet from WarnerMedia’s CEO Jason Kilar failed to mention Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. In a series of tweets that previewed upcoming games, a series of logos for Gotham Knights and Hogwarts Legacy were posted, while the Suicide Squad was notably left out. It’s unknown when in 2023 the Suicide Squad will eventually release, if the delay is made official.

The game, officially titled Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, is an upcoming open-world, co-op action game from the developers of the Batman: Arkham series, and was announced last August. The game will feature playable characters like Deadshot, King Shark, and Harley Quinn, which are all characters featured in the Suicide Squad franchise. The game will allow four players to co-op together, teaming up to defeat brainwashed superheroes like Superman. The game still has a release date of 2022 on Steam (as of this writing).
