Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Delayed Until 2024
Rocksteady took to social media to make the announcement, saying that the decision to delay was tough but necessary to ensure the best possible gaming experience for players. The developer also thanked the game’s community for their support, patience, and understanding. Rocksteady promised more information about the game would be revealed in the months ahead.
Live-Service Approach Continues
The game was showcased during the PlayStation State of Play broadcast in February 2023, where an extended gameplay demo was unveiled. However, some fans criticized the live-service approach of the game, but it seems that Rocksteady will not be changing their plans.
The live service elements that Rocksteady demonstrated drew the most criticism, with many people objecting to the always-online requirement (which Arcane is working to remove from Redfall’s single-player mode), as well as tying cosmetic items to microtransactions and a battle pass system.
Hogwarts Legacy Success
The first big game of 2023 from WB, Hogwarts Legacy, was a success. The game was announced in 2020 and has since generated a lot of hype among fans of the franchise.
Even before its release, Hogwarts Legacy has been a commercial success. In its first two weeks, the game sold over 12 million copies and generated $850 million in revenue. This is a testament to the enduring popularity of the Harry Potter brand and the anticipation surrounding this highly-anticipated game.
Hogwarts Legacy takes place in the 1800s, before the events of the Harry Potter books and films, and follows a new student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Players will create their own character, attend classes, learn spells, and explore the magical world of Harry Potter. The game promises to be an immersive experience, allowing players to make choices that will affect the outcome of the story.
Same Universe, Different City
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is being developed by Rocksteady, the studio behind the Batman: Arkham series. The game is set in the same universe as the Arkham games but takes place outside of Gotham and into Metropolis.
The story centers around Task Force X, also known as the Suicide Squad, as they are deployed to stop the Justice League, which has been taken over by Brainiac. The game will also feature the late Kevin Conroy, reprising his role as Batman for one of his final performances.
Rocksteady has announced that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been delayed until February 2, 2024. The delay was necessary to ensure the best possible gaming experience for players. Despite some criticism of the live-service approach, Rocksteady will continue with its plans for the game.
The success of WB’s first big game of 2023, Hogwarts Legacy, bodes well for the future of the company. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set in the same universe as the Batman: Arkham series but takes place in Metropolis and features the Suicide Squad trying to stop a Brainiac-controlled Justice League.
