Suicide Squad Kill The Justice League Gameplay Launch Trailer

Suicide Squad Currently Has Fewer Steam Players Than Dead Marvel’s Avengers

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League continues a downward spiral so immense, it’s literally performing worse than dead live service games. A new report reveals that the concurrent player count for Suicide Squad has sunk to a new all-time low of just 118 players. As it turns out, even Marvel’s Avengers, which was canned by Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics last year, is outperforming its concurrent player numbers.

The report comes from Windows Central’s Jez Corden who ran the numbers on Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League‘s concurrent player count on Steam and it’s not looking pretty. At the time of the report, the number of concurrent players had plummeted to only 118 players. To put this into perspective, Marvel’s Avengers was pulling in more concurrent players than Suicide Squad yesterday, albeit only a dozen more or so.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League launched to an abysmal reception back in February. While it featured a somewhat decent campaign, it was heavily criticised for its undercooked post-game content and endgame activities that had players repetitively grinding for meaningless new gear. The first major seasonal update for the game introduced The Joker as a “free” playable character which did bring a few players back for a while, though it’s clear that most of them bowed out shortly after.

It’s almost surreal to see Suicide Squad drop this low as a heavily marketed big-budget AAA game. Rocksteady was once at the forefront of the superhero genre in gaming with the excellent single-player Batman Arkham trilogy. At this point, it’s unknown if future seasonal updates will do enough to dig the game out of its many problems or if Warner Bros. Games will simply pull the plug, putting Suicide Squad to rest in the graveyard of other defunct live service titles.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
