You will have to wait a bit longer to jump into the boots of the usual villains who are trying to save the world this time around.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been delayed to February 2, 2024.
It is unclear whether this particular date was chosen for some symbolic reason but the existence of the delay is sort of a development hell the game is going through.
Rocksteady didn't elaborate on the reason, except the boilerplate statement that they need more time to "work on getting the game to be the best quality experience for players".
Fans were initially very enthusiastic to see another Rocksteady title in the DC universe but that hype has waned over time and especially when a few details leaked, such as the monetisation plans for the title.
It was previously reported the game's release would be pushed back to late 2023 but it seems like an additional few months were needed, which resulted in the early 2024 date.
The fact that the reactions to the previously released trailers were less than stellar probably contributed to the delay, although it is dubious how much can be fixed now that the game is so deep into development.
Some of the complaints can be dealt with if the battle pass and microtransactions get tossed but the looter shooter direction of the game is something that can't really be changed now, even though it is one of the major sources of dissatisfaction from the fan base.
