Just over a month ago, we reported on postponement rumors surrounding Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The rumors turned out to be true, and Rocksteady now reports that the game will not be launched until next year.
The developer takes nine extra months of development time and moves the launch from May this year to February 2, 2024. Via Twitter, Rocksteady explains that it was a difficult but necessary decision.
– We have made the difficult but necessary decision to take the time needed to make the game the best quality experience for players. Thanks to our amazing player community for your continued support, patience and understanding. There is much more to share over the next few months and we look forward to seeing you in Metropolis next year.
The postponement comes after a heavily criticized presentation of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League earlier this year. Among other things, players complained about the games as a service model and requirements for an Internet connection even in single player. Whether any of this will now change is uncertain.
This is the second major delay for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The game was originally unveiled in 2020, and was then due to launch two years later. Then came the postponement to 2023 and now to 2024.
