Rocksteady and Warner Bros. Games have a new release date for Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League. Suicide Squad delayed until 2023 news broke today as gamers will now have to wait until next year to take control of “Task Force X”.
Suicide Squad Delayed Until 2023
The latest DC title from Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. Games was first announced in 2020. The first trailer was shown at DC FanDome 2020. Another trailer aired in late 2021 during The Game Awards.
Rocksteady developed the Batman Arkham series. The first release came in 2009 – Batman Arkham Asylum. This title will be set in the same universe and will put gamers in control of DC’s notorious antihero squad. Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, and King Shark are sent to Metropolis by Amanda Waller. Once they arrive they learn that Brainiac has brainwashed Superman, Flash, and Green Lantern. The Suicide Squad must work together to save Earth and The Justice League.
This marks the first main entry DC game from Rocksteady since the Arkham series ended with Batman Arkham Knight released in 2015. Other spinoffs Batman: Arkham Underworld and Batman: Arkham VR both released in 2016.
Although it is delayed Suicide Squad is not the only new DC game in the works. Gotham Knights, a game centered around Batfamily members Robin, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Batgirl is in development from WB Games Montreal. It is expected to be released in 2022 but no release date has been given as of this writing. An open-world Wonder Women game is also in production from Monolith Productions. A brief trailer played during The Game Awards but no release date has been given.
