Sefton Hill, Creative Director and co-founder at Rocksteady Games, has announced that Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League has been delayed until Spring 2023. The game was originally targeting a 2022 release date.
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. pic.twitter.com/VOSwTM6Zak

Sefton Hill did not provide any specific reasons for this delay. Our guess is that this delay is due to, you guessed it, COVID-19. Moreover, and as with all delays, the devs will try to use this extra time in order to further improve the game.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will combine Rocksteady’s signature character-driven story gameplay with third-person shooter action. The game will feature an original narrative and will take place in a richly detailed open-world Metropolis.
The story follows Suicide Squad members who must take on an impossible mission; save Earth and kill the world’s greatest DC Super Heroes, The Justice League. Restrained with lethal explosives implanted in their heads, all four DC Super-Villains have no choice but to band together and carry out this untenable assignment as part of Amanda Waller’s infamous Task Force X.
