Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has officially been delayed out of 2022 and into a Spring 2023 release window. This confirms a few previous rumors that suggested that game was about to be hit with an official delay.

Sefton Hill, creative director on the game, sent out a tweet this morning that confirmed the delay. He notes that "a delay is frustrating but that time is going into making the best game we can." Hill's full statement can be seen in the embedded tweet below.


This delay will place the game's release at roughly eight years since Rocksteady's last major game release. That game was Batman: Arkham Knight. There was another game released by the studio after Arkham Knight, Batman: Arkham VR, but that was a much smaller and vastly scaled back project in comparison to a normal game.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was first announced back in August 2020. The game is still set to be a big open world co-op title where up to four players will get to play as Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang. These four will be taking on evil versions of superheroes such as Superman.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was originally slated for a 2022 release. A report made earlier this year by Bloomberg hinted at a delay coming for the game. The publisher, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, does still have LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Hogwarts Legacy, and Gotham Knights coming this year. All three of these titles were also previously delayed.
