Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Delayed Again?

It’s getting ridiculous for Rocksteady’s game.


It is not a studio that makes poor games. They made Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and Batman: Arkham Knight and all three were excellent. Of course, they’ve been a bit quiet since then, apart from their PlayStation VR experience (Batman: Arkham VR), but Warner hasn’t let the DC comic universe and its licensees go to waste, as they’ve given Rocksteady another title, but there was a big gap between their last significant game and the announcement of their next one…

The other studio in a similar situation is WB Games Montréal, which released Batman: Arkham Origins in 2013, and then Gotham Knights last autumn. This game has left the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One behind during development (and in the meantime, console performance has finally shown a nice improvement). At Rocksteady, Batman: Arkham Knight rolled out of the studio’s doors in 2015, with their next game announced in 2020…

Of course, if it were announced to be released a few months later, there wouldn’t be such a big gap between the two games, but even though Warner confirmed the game in August 2020, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which is based on a live service model that requires an internet connection even playing solo (?!), was not released in 2021 or last year, and now there are rumors that it won’t be coming out this year…

Jeff Grubb said on the Game Mess Decides podcast that he doesn’t want to cause panic. Still, he’s heard that Rocksteady’s next game won’t be released until 2024, so it’s not just the usual better performance fine-tuning that’s going on in the background. There’s a good chance Warner did it because the fifteen-minute gameplay demo at State of Play didn’t grab the public’s attention either.

It’s going to be hard to get out of this mess.

Still, she likes puzzle and story-oriented games, like Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, which is her favourite title.
