‘Suicide Squad’ Video Game Reportedly Delayed Again, Now Expected “Later This Year”
Now slated for release sometime later this year.
Once again, Warner Bros. has delayed the release of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. After being pushed back from its original planned release date in 2022 to May 2023, the company has shared that fans will have to wait even longer to get their hands on it, according to a new report from Bloomberg.
Based on the comic book series of the same name, the game is a multiplayer action-adventure shooter, with an optional solo mode, being developed by the London-based studio Rocksteady.
Per the report, the delay is “mainly for polish, not to overhaul the core gameplay” and the title is now slated to arrive “later this year.”
During a recent State of Play, developers showcased the world of Rocksteady’s Arkhamverse and offered a look into the RPG style. Players will be able to choose to play as one of four antiheroes from the franchise: Deadshot, Harley Quinn, King Shark and Captain Boomerang.
Some gamers, however, were disappointed to learn that Suicide Squad follows a Game as a Service (GaaS) model, meaning that the majority of revenue is derived from in-game purchases and subscriptions, rather than the upfront cost. Despite backlash, developers still plan to launch it as a GaaS.
