Suicide Squad will now release in Spring 2023, Creative Director Sefton Hill revealed via his Twitter.
Rocksteady Games' action adventure Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is no longer releasing this year. The studio decided to push the game to Spring 2023.
Suicide Squad Creative Director Sefton Hill confirmed the delay via Twitter :
"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 was announced back in August 2020 for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. The game will allow players to team up with up to three players in co-op or play the story by themselves with one of the four playable characters - Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, or King Shark.
Rocksteady said that the game will not be a live-service title, despite the co-op and multiplayer component.
Now that Suicide Squad is officially delayed to 2023, it will probably take a while before we see it again, since the devs will probably use the coming months to focus on development and polishing, which is probably for the best. We hope the team use the extra time to deliver the best possible title.
