Following the earlier report, it is now confirmed that the Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League video game has been delayed to Spring 2023.
Rocksteady Games creative director Sefton Hill made the announcement Wednesday on social media.
“We’ve made the difficult decision to delay Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League to Spring 2023. 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,” tweeted Hill.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League coming to next-gen consoles and PC
The report from February also noted that 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, with some getting released in 2022 or later, such as Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League was first announced at DC’s FanDome event back in August of 2021 with an expected 2022 release date.
Details for the game include it will be exclusive to next-gen consoles (PS5 and XBox Series X/S) and PC.
The game features an original narrative set in the DC universe and takes place in a richly detailed open-world Metropolis. The story follows Suicide Squad members Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang and King Shark who must take on an impossible mission to save Earth and kill the world’s greatest DC Super Heroes, The Justice League. Restrained with lethal explosives implanted in their heads, all four DC Super-Villains have no choice but to band together and carry out this untenable assignment as part of Amanda Waller’s infamous Task Force X. Fans can tailor their experience, whether playing on their own as a single-player, switching between characters at will, or teaming up with friends in multiplayer co-op.
The playable characters featured include Harley Quinn (a.k.a. Dr. Harleen Quinzel), the mistress of mayhem; Deadshot (a.k.a. Floyd Lawton), the most dangerous marksman alive; Captain Boomerang (a.k.a. Digger Harkness), Aussie assassin extraordinaire; and King Shark (a.k.a. Nanaue), the demigod humanoid shark and rightful ruler of the seas. Each squad member has their own unique moveset with enhanced traversal abilities to freely explore the dynamic open-world of Metropolis, along with a variety of weapons to customize and skills to master.
