Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League: Everything we know

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was recently delayed to 2023. Delays are always disappointing, but when the game in question promises so much, waiting a little longer is almost always worth it. With E3 2022 just around the corner too, we expect to see more from Rocksteady’s (the studio behind the Batman: Arkham series) next big thing – be sure to keep your eyes trained on the E3 2022 schedule over the coming weeks for just that. 

So what do we know so far about Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League? We know it’s bigger and brighter than anything the dev has given us before. We know we’ll have the chance to play co-op with three pals, filling the supervillain shoes of Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot and King Shark. We know… listen, we know quite a lot about Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, that you’d best read on yourself for more.

After some whispers and rumors that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice league would be delayed, the delay was confirmed in March 2022. The game has been pushed to Spring 2023, as the team behind it likely needs more time to ensure the co-op shooter is rock-solid. Considering how tough it’s been for studios to continue development through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a delay isn’t surprising. And if that means less crunch for the developers, it’s a great decision. We can wait for excellence, right?

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. pic.twitter.com/VOSwTM6ZakMarch 23, 2022

The reveal trailer for Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League confirmed four playable characters: Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark. Naturally, each member of the Suicide Squad is equipped with their own distinct weapons. Harley Quinn employs her signature baseball bat to deadly effect, King Shark has dual cleavers and a huge gun, Deadshot rocks a flame-spitting jetpack and wrist-cannons, and I probably don’t need to explain Captain Boomerang’s weapon of choice. Not a squad to be trifled with, no doubt, and you can switch between any of the four characters at will.

Superman makes an appearance in the Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League reveal trailer, but it’s not the Superman the squad was expecting. Eyes beaming red and ruthlessly dispatching an innocent pilot, this Superman is evil… and presumably thirsty for some Task Force blood.

Of course, as the Justice League’s natural leader, Superman likely isn’t the only member of the team to turn bad, and the Suicide Squad is likely up against a formidable anti-superhero team that could include Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Aquaman.

You can squad up with friends and take down evil Superman with up to four friends in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, Rocksteady has confirmed. You’ll also be able to switch between characters at will, jumping to whichever squad member suits your play style. Single player mode affords the same option, and you’ll have a full squad no matter mode you play, with bots controlling the unused characters.
