Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Delayed into 2023

Rocksteady's founder announced the push on Twitter.

Rocksteady Games has announced Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, its upcoming cooperative take on the DC Comics universe, won’t be making its originally projected 2022 release date, and is now set to come to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S in spring of next year.

News of this came from a post by studio founder Sefton Hill on Twitter, where he said the team made the decision to push the game another year so that time would allow them to make a better game. As most delays are meant to. Rocksteady is primarily known for its work on the Batman: Arkham series, and with Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League pushed into next year, it will have been close to seven years between its last two projects. The studio’s last release was Batman: Arkham VR, which came to PlayStation VR in 2016, then was later ported to PC the following year.

Hill’s full statement reads as follows:

“We’ve made the difficult decision to delay Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League to Spring 2023. I know a delay is frustrating but that time is going into making the best game we can. I look forward to bringing the chaos to Metropolis together. Thanks for your patience.”

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League stars Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, King Shark, and Deadshot as they fight the Justice League, which has fallen under the control of Brainiac. Dibs on playing as Harley. I suppose we can just watch the latest Suicide Squad movie in the meantime?
