WindowsCentral’s Jez Corden has taken to Twitter to report that he’s heard that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has likely been delayed from May to Q4-ish 2023.

In a follow-up tweet, Corden said that he was trying to get “hard confirmation”, but was “fairly sure on this one” [the delay].

The game saw widespread criticism online following its gameplay reveals at Sony’s recent State of Play in February. The main focus of the criticism came from the announcement of a Battle Pass system and the game requiring an online connection for the single-player side of the game.

The game is an upcoming action-adventure game developed by Rocksteady Studios taking place five years after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight. The game was first announced to be in development in July 2010, with Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns stating “Because of the concept, you have a game where any of the lead characters can conceivably die and it’s not a stunt. Some really cool story could come out of that.” (via Kotaku)

Warner Bros. Games is yet to officially report on the delay, but Insider Gaming has reached out for comment and we’ll report if we hear anything.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is currently officially scheduled to launch on May 26 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

UPDATE – Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier has corroborated Corden’s claims.

UPDATE #2 – It’s since been suggested by industry insider Jeff Grubb on the Games Mess podcast that the delay has been pushed back to 2024.
