Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League delayed into 2024

By Tom West,

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been delayed for a second time, pushing its launch on Xbox Series X|S into 2024 so Rocksteady can offer "the best quality experience for players."

Following reports last month that suggested Rocksteady's anti-hero-focused game had been delayed, Warner Bros. has announced that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League won't launch until February 2nd, 2024.

As announced on Twitter, Rocksteady says it is working on "getting the game to be the best quality experience for players." Further reasons for the delay were not explained. The game received a fairly negative reception when its co-op and behind-the-scenes trailers dropped in February, with many players taking issue with its live-service elements, so that could be a factor in Warner Bros' decision.

Although Rocksteady has said that the Battle Pass system will only offer cosmetic items, and that new missions and earnable characters would be added over time for free, it seems like it's not quite the game some players were expecting from the developer behind the fantastic Batman: Arkham series. Naturally, comparisons have been drawn with Marvel's Avengers from Square Enix, which notoriously struggled to sustain an audience.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will now launch on February 2nd, 2024, for Xbox Series X|S. What do you think about the delay? Drop down below and let us know!
