The pandemic has definitely thrown a wrench in the schedule of Warner Bros. and its video game division.
While several titles are still expected for 2022, including the adaptation of the Harry Potter universe Hogwarts Legacy and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, one of the group’s big releases has been pushed back to next year.
Bad news for those who are waiting for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. According to Jason Schreier, who cites several sources close to the development, Warner Bros. has quietly pushed back the release of the game to 2023, while the publisher reaffirmed a 2022 launch at the Games Awards last December.
The news will come as no surprise to some. Many gamers and media outlets were already suspicious following a tweet from Jason Kilar. The boss of the group was keen to reassure fans by recalling all the big releases of the year, including Hogwarts Legacy and Gotham Knights, while taking care to exclude the adaptation of Harley Quinn and her gang. Warner Bros. did not want to answer Bloomberg’s questions about a possible postponement, but it is now almost official.
