Rocksteady will share new details on the much-delayed Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League this week during the first episode of a new series called “Suicide Squad Insider”. While we don’t know what is in store for the episode, we will likely see a handful of new gameplay features and hopefully, a reworked monetization system.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League was originally announced back in 2020 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC but was delayed after the game’s deep dive showcase was met with mass backlash over its live service elements. Not only did Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League look generic but the game featured heavy grinding mechanics, various in-game currencies and a battle pass.
Much of the backlash for Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League was due to the game’s drastic new direction after the huge success of Rocksteady Games’ Arkham trilogy. It looked like a complete 180 in comparison. Keep in mind that Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is set in the same universe so fans were expecting greatness.
Rocksteady then decided to delay Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League from its original 2022 release date to May 2023. It was then delayed indefinitely due to the ongoing controversy.
We don’t know what Rocksteady will share in the first episode of the Suicide Squad Insider. However, Warner Bros. Games recently announced that the publisher would only focus on live service games going forward. This means that whatever fans hated about Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League will likely remain unchanged. Its biggest criticism was due to its live service elements including an always-online requirement to play single-player and the much-hated battle pass.
You’ll be able to watch the first Suicide Squad Insider tomorrow, Wednesday 15 November at 6 pm GMT / 20:00 CAT.
