Suicide Squad: Official slip, yet another, of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League of Rocksteady. It is still a mystery about the real causes behind the decision.
Rocksteady has formalized the news that has been in the air for a few weeks, namely the official postponement of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The game was initially scheduled for May on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S, but it won’t arrive in stores until 2024. On the real reasons that led to another postponement, however, observers seem divided or cold about the number of changes allowed by the additional development time.
WHEN IS SUICIDE SQUAD: KILL THE JUSTICE LEAGUE COMING OUT? —
“We have made the difficult but necessary decision to take the time to work towards making the game the best quality experience possible for players,” reads Rocksteady’s message, thus reacting to the disappointment of fans after the gameplay debut two months ago.
THE REASONS FOR THE POSTPONEMENT
The players hope that the postponement will bring the title back on the tracks of the single-player adventure for which Rocksteady is famous. Still, more than the additional nine months would be needed to change course from the service game direction taken so far.
According to Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, the first to launch the rumor of a new postponement, these months would not be “enough to completely change the nature of a game.” Moreover, the team “had been told that the postponement would be for a polish and would not be linked to the February gameplay showcase,” which disappointed fans.
It’s normal for a Polish to take that much, says Schreier, “less normal for nine years to go from one game to another” than Rocksteady. According to Jez Corden of Windows Central, however, “part of the postponement [… would be] to remove/rework the ‘always online’ component” of the game, and this, if nothing else, would at least partially meet the requests of fans.
