Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been delayed again, giving it a huge chance to finally become a good game. While we doubt that the core gameplay loop can be completely overhauled this late in development, rumour has it its online-only aspect might be removed.
Though this hasn’t been confirmed by Warner Bros. or Rocksteady Games, Jez Corden of Windows Central claims online-only requirements might be getting pulled. Granted, this wouldn’t fix the fact that this is yet another multiplayer shooter with a battle pass but people who want to play alone have some hope now.
On the Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Twitter account, developer Rocksteady revealed the delay was done “to be the best quality experience for players." While that doesn’t officially confirm the news, it would be best for everyone if online-only requirements were removed.
Yes, we understand having to be online to start the game up and sign off on agreements but that should be it. Forcing an internet connection for the single-player campaign is just bad as any kind of network issue could lead to the game being stopped and progress being lost.
With all that being said, if Rocksteady is doing everything possible to make Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League better, that’s all we can ask for. Sure, not all of us are fans of the battle pass shooter but if the mechanics are solid and the story’s intriguing, we’d be pretty happy. Let’s hope that’s the case.
Despite a delay, it looks like this Suicide Squad game is going to stick to what we saw in its big gameplay reveal. It’s not all bad as the traversal looked decent and the settings were colorful, despite all the violence. Beyond that, we can also expect some new characters to come post-launch, which should mean more variety.
