Certain games seem to suffer horrific delays before eventually being scrapped or sometimes--to everyone's surprise--coming out. We all know, "Duke Nukem Forever," and how it maybe should've just been left to die. There is also at the current moment that, "Skull and Bones," game which seems to be forever in a state of being delayed and retooled. Perhaps we can also add, "Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League," to the list of games that keep getting pushed back as it was due a while ago, then delayed to this May. It isn't coming out in May, though. Nope, it has now been announced as due in February of 2024. Yep, almost a year.
I and other folks were excited at the thought of a Suicide Squad game from the developer Rocksteady. Their Batman-focused Arkham games were superb, after all. However, as more information was released about it we found that the whole title looked like a live service-styled game. That basically killed a recent, "Avengers," game and everybody felt quite hesitant the more we saw of, "Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League." I guess the bad reception has resulted in a good chunk of elements being taken back to the drawing board as this many months sounds like a lot more than fine-tuning will be called for. I'd always rather have a game that is good and complete/playable than a rushed-out mess so I'm not upset about this delay. I just am worried if it'll be enough or even make a difference at this point. Perhaps we will know come February of next year--assuming that is the actual final date of release.
