Rocksteady Games Announces Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
omic book enthusiasts that partake in video games have long waited for an announcement from Rocksteady, the developers that created the Arkham Knight series. Rocksteady created three of the original games in this franchise, with WB Games Montreal developing a prequel. After years of not knowing what Rocksteady was working on next, it’s been announced that their upcoming title is “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League”.
Details regarding this game have been minimal, with gamers clamouring to rumours for months. All that’s known is the baseline story of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, and other members of the Suicide Squad being tasked to kill evil versions of the Justice League. Additional details are slated to arrive in 2021, with Rocksteady confirming that 2022 will mark the year when their latest game in the Arkham Knight franchise will release. It’ll be available for the Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam.
It’s known that several members from the Suicide Squad comic books will arrive in Rocksteady’s upcoming game, which notably has comedic undertones & an exceptional level of violence that outweighs their previous entries into the Arkham Knight universe. The Co-Op features will be supported via online & local formats, allowing gamers to play with friends as two of their favourite villains in Batman’s rogue gallery. It’s a similar feature to WB Montreal’s announced, “Gotham Knights”, which was revealed a day earlier at DC Fandome.
Reactions seen throughout the debut trailer from members in the Suicide Squad indicate a game of hilarious moments, which was shown when these villains learn they’re tasked with taking the life of Superman & other Justice League members. This suggests that Wonder Woman, the Flash, Cyborg, Green Arrow, Aquaman, or Green Lantern could be making a possible experience in this title. When learning that Superman is their next battle, Captain Boomerang states “Oh F*** Me.”
Gamers were upset to learn that Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad game & WB Montreal’s Gotham Knights won’t be connected. These titles take place in different universes, with Rocksteady’s continuing the Arkham Knight franchise timeline. Gotham Knights are located in another universe & timeline, where Bruce Wayne is dead, and the Court of Owls have come alive. This creates disturbed timelines that have left fans unpleased.
