The Suicide Squad game currently in development at Rocksteady has had its release date pushed into 2023, per Bloomberg. It was originally slated for release this year.

The report claims publisher Warner Bros. delayed the game, based on sources familiar with its development. No specific reason for the delay was provided, and Warner Bros. has yet to comment on the reported delay.

Last week, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar tweeted that his company planned to release a "full slate of highly anticipated games" in 2022, with logos for several of the titles. Suicide Squad's logo did not appear among them.

Rocksteady and Warner Bros. first announced Suicide Squad in 2020, and a gameplay clip premiered during The Game Awards 2021. The game puts players into the shoes of DC villains such as Harley Quinn, King Shark and Captain Boomerang as they try to take out Superman, who has had his mind taken over by Brainiac.

Rocksteady's last game, Batman: Arkham Knight, came out in 2015. A VR version of the game followed in 2016.
