The highly anticipated Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been delayed to 2024, the developers announced through Twitter.

Sad news for the DC Comic fans, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is not coming out in 2023. The game, developed by Rocksteady, the same creators of the Batman Arkham series, moved its release date to February 2024.

“We have made the tough but necessary decision to take the time needed to work on getting the game to be the best quality experience for our players,” Rocksteady wrote through the game’s official Twitter account.

Why was Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League delayed?

The news of a delay come after the game receive less than positive early reviews. Back in February, some players had the opportunity to get their hands on an early version of the game.

Some of the features criticized by the players are the looting system, the battle pass, and the always-online requirement. Since these features were revealed, players have asked Rocksteady to remove them from the game completely.

The delay gave players some hope that Rocksteady would be making major changes. However, this is not the case. Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier shared through Twitter that Rocksteady is planning on polishing up the game, not changing it. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will remain as it is.

Some narrative adjustments might be implemented in the game. The DC cinematic universe is scrapping all its plans and starting fresh, all under the direction of James Gunn.

According to Gunn, DC is planning on having a cohesive narrative across all media, that includes movies, TV, and video games. The director also said that he wants the actors who play the characters on screen to voice them in video games. Right now, all the actors involved in the game are not linked to any other DC project.

It would be a crazy and ambitious move to change the voice actors, but if DC wants to execute its vision, it might do it.
