Rocksteady Studios have revealed that they've decided to delay the release of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League to Spring 2023.

Best known for their Batman: Arkham series, Rocksteady Studios have been working on their next DC-inspired action game - Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Set to be a continuation of the Arkham series, this game won't be featuring Batman as the protagonist, but rather the deadly group of criminals known as the Suicide Squad.

The game was originally set to be released later this year for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC. But, earlier today, Creative Director Sefton Hill announced that the game would be delayed to next year.

The announcement, which came via Twitter, said, "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."

Though the studio has yet to reveal their main reasons for the delay, many game studios remain impacted by the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic which has added extra barriers to an already complex operation.

While delays are often frustrating, it allows the development team more time to create the project that they wish to put out - often resulting in a better product overall.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is now slated for Spring 2023.
