We haven’t heard a peep out of Rocksteady Studios and WB Games about Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League since the game was delayed by nearly a year into February 2024, and questions about what shape the title is in have become increasingly louder, especially as its launch draws closer. Not long from now, however, we’ll be getting out first update on it in several months.
Rocksteady has confirmed that it’s kickstarting a new video series titled Suicide Squad Insider to reveal new details on the game in the lead-up to its launch. The first episode – which will premiere this Wednesday, November 15, at 10 AM PT – will focus on the game’s story and gameplay.
We last saw Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League when Rocksteady and WB Games showcased an extensive gameplay showing as part of a State of Play presentation in February. The showing provoked widespread backlash from fans, with the majority of criticism being directed at the game’s live service nature and its looter shooter trappings.
In the aftermath of the aforementioned backlash, Suicide Squad was delayed out of May 2023 into early 2024. Leaks have claimed that one of the reasons for delaying the game was to remove its always-online requirement, and that the core game mechanics are not being changed.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set to launch on February 2, 2024 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
Join us this Wednesday for the first episode of our brand new series, Suicide Squad Insider. In episode one, Rocksteady will unpack the story and gameplay of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. #SuicideSquadGame pic.twitter.com/11SG7j0xYh
