“I know a delay is frustrating but that time is going into making the best game we can”
Warner Bros. Games has officially delayed the release of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League to 2023.
Previously scheduled for release this year, the PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC game will now arrive next spring, the studio confirmed on Wednesday.
“We’ve made the difficult decision to delay Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League to Spring 2023,” said Rocksteady Studios creative director and co-founder Sefton Hill.
“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.”

Bloomberg first reported on the game’s delay to 2023 last month, but today marks the first official confirmation of the slip.
The next game from the creator of the Batman: Arkham series is billed as a “genre-bending action-adventure shooter” set in an open-world Metropolis.
Playable solo or with up to four players in online co-op, its original story follows Suicide Squad members Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang and King Shark, who are on a mission to save Earth and kill the world’s greatest DC Super Heroes, The Justice League.
Suicide Squad was announced alongside Gotham Knights at 2020’s DC Fandome event and its first gameplay trailer was released in December.
Warner Bros. recently announced an October 25, 2022 Gotham Knights release date.
Gotham Knights is being developed by WB Games Montreal and led by creative director Patrick Redding, who previously directed Splinter Cell titles Conviction and Blacklist.
