It's reported that the Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League video game has been delayed by Warner Bros.
While the game didn't have an official release date, it was said to be getting released later in 2022 for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, but according to Bloomberg, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League has been "quietly delayed" until 2023.
The site also says other big video game projects from Warner Bros. have also been pushed back which include titles based on Harry Potter, Batman, and a LEGO version of Star Wars that were supposed to be released in 2021, but the games are said to be delayed because of the pandemic.
As noted, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar did tweet recently about releasing a full slate of games in 2022 which teased a Harry Potter game and Batman Gotham Knights, but Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League wasn't present.
Again, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League didn't have a specific 2022 release date so the news of a delay isn't all that surprising, but WB and Rocksteady have been promoting the release of the game through various trailers, so the delay is a bit disappointing; however, if it gives them more time to get the game right, that is not necessarily a bad thing.
It's also unknown if the soon-to-be merger between WarnerMedia and Discovery is impacting things.
