Yes, Warner Bros. is once again delaying Suicide Squad so that the developers can tweak it a bit more.
Warner Bros. has once again delayed the video game based on the Suicide Squad comic book franchise, pushing it back from a May release date to the end of this year, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.
The multiplayer shooter Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, starring the group of anti-heroes known from the comic book series, was initially scheduled for release in 2022 until it was pushed back to 2023 early last year.
Last fall, London-based developer Rocksteady Studios said it would be released on May 26. A new release date is not yet precise.
A Warner representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Suicide Squad was unveiled at a PlayStation event in February, but fans have criticized the game for feature elements such as purchasable cosmetics and the requirement for online play.
The delay is mainly due to the need to fix bugs and incorporate missing aspects of the game. It will not extensively overhaul the core gameplay. Yet that was what caused the backlash, said the person, who asked not to be named because he was discussing information that is not public.
Warner’s first 2023 game, Hogwarts Legacy, was a huge success. It sold more than 12 million copies, despite widespread backlash over some of the views of Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling.
