According to a report by Bloomberg, Rocksteady’s highly anticipated Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League video game has been delayed to next year.
Jason Schreier’s article cites “people familiar with its development” as his source, along with a tweet from Warner Media Chief Executive Officer Jason Kilar.
Kilar’s tweetKilar’s tweet included a mission statement for Warner Media for 2022, “delivering of a full slate of highly anticipated games.” Schreier comments that while Hogwarts Legacy and Gotham Knights are images attached to the tweet, Suicide Squad is “notably absent”.
However, it’s important to note that the tweet was also addressing Warner Media’s plans for HBO Max and CNN+. Twitter has a cap of four images per tweet, so only two games were able to be included in the images.
Warner Media did not initially respond to requests for commend from Bloomberg. Rocksteady has also made no official announcement of the game’s delay, and their Twitter account still shows its release as 2022.
Rocksteady is best known for their Batman: Arkham series, an award-winning line of video games beginning with Batman: Arkham Asylum in 2009. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be set in the same universe as those games, after the events of 2015’s Arkham Knight.
Rocksteady’s last release was the 2016 VR game, Batman: Arkham VR.
