Rocksteady Pulls Suicide Squad Just One Hour Into Early Access
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League launched in early access for those who owned the Deluxe Edition early Monday in the United States for those in Oceania (Australia, New Zealand, and other nations). Unfortunately, it took less than an hour for Suicide Squad to be pulled due to a bug that auto-completed the game upon initial login.
In a post on Twitter, Rocksteady posted on Twitter about the bug, stating that the fix for the always-online live service game would take “several hours”.
“We’re aware that a number of players are currently experiencing an issue whereby upon logging into the game for the first time, they have full story completion,” the studio said. “To resolve this issue, we will be performing maintenance on the game servers. During this time the game will be unavailable.
“We expect this to take several hours and will update once we have more information. We apologise for the inconvenience.”
There is no word if the game will remain offline when early access begins in the United States, United Kingdom, and other regions at midnight local time on January 30.
Insider Gaming has reached out to Rocksteady for comment on the timing of the fix. Should a response be received, it’ll be added to this story.
