One apparent leak is offering some unsettling rumours about the upcoming Suicide Squad game that can easily turn many DC fans away.

According to an anonymous leak on Reddit, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be Epic Games Store exclusive for six months. While the exclusivity period is not as long as usual, it's safe to assume numerous PC players will still be disillusioned from the get-go. According to the post , this exclusivity will be announced on October 16, 2021.

The part that will disappoint players across all platforms, however, is the monetisation approach - the same leaker alleges that this will be a live service third-person shooter with "continuous content updates" that will expand the setting beyond Metropolis. Suicide Squad will also have loot and "loads of cool gear", meaning we are looking at yet another attempt to mimic the likes of the Destiny series.

Looter shooters are not something players end up liking in the end since the concept is usually used to grinding gear and thus tricking players into an illusion of replayability even though the content itself is often not that engaging.

If these rumours turn out to be true, it's possible that Rocksteady's good reputation might not be enough to make Suicide Squad a hit, especially because countless superhero fans are still sore about the failure of Marvel's Avengers.

The leaker claims no more info can be provided in order to preserve their anonymity but since this is still a rumour, it would be wise to treat it as such until official announcements appear.
