Kill the Justice League delayed once again
The first release date for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which is said to take place in the same universe as the popular Batman series, was originally scheduled for 2022. Afterwards, it was said that the game would come in the spring of 2023, and the release date was announced as May 26, 2023. Now, a month before its release, the game has been postponed to February 2, 2024. In the statement, it is said, “We made the difficult but necessary decision to allocate the necessary time for the game to provide the highest quality experience,” and it is stated that more details will be shared in the coming months.
The production was perceived as a “service game” and criticized by the players in the 15-minute screening made in the PlayStation live broadcast in February. The gameplay styles that were not suitable for the general structure of the characters were also one of the targets of the criticism arrows. On the other hand, the reason behind the delay was not disclosed. According to Jason Schreier, one of the important names in the game world, this delay was made for a detailed polishing that will focus on fixing bugs and bugs in the game, and there will be no change in the general structure of the game.
