Warner Bros. Interactive appeared to have a well-defined strategy heading into 2022, despite the company’s lofty goals.
Warner Bros. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, Gotham Knights, and Hogwarts Legacy would all be major releases. Because of the delay, a lot was known about LEGO Star Wars and Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League before the State of Play presentation on the latter.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League appeared to be the more likely release this year, based on marketing comparisons between it and Gotham Knights. It appears that one of the four major releases was going to be delayed.
Gotham Knights and Hogwarts Legacy were the two most likely to be delayed, at least in terms of marketing if not leaks and messaging. That has been discarded for the time being.
Earlier this year, it was reported that the release date of Suicide Squad had been pushed back until 2023. At the time, many were concerned about Gotham Knights because of Warner Bros. Interactive’s silence on this matter. However, when Gotham Knights were given a release date, Suicide Squad was completely silent and there was no buzz around the game at all.
LEGO Star Wars appears to be the only one whose release date hasn’t changed since it was announced. The release date for Hogwarts Legacy was recently confirmed as Holiday 2022, while the release date for Gotham Knights was announced as October. A release date for a game that hasn’t been given much attention is a good sign that more will be shown in the future.
However, while lesser-known films like Gotham Knights and Hogwarts Legacy now have release dates and windows, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is going unnoticed. The fact that Bloomberg broke the news of Suicide Squad’s postponement and the subsequent changes to its release date, showcases, and marketing materials left little room for doubt.

Gotham Knights and Hogwarts Legacy may or may not join it in 2023, but it’s not a certainty. If you’re still holding out hope that Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is going to be released this year, you’re putting yourself at risk of disappointment.
One benefit is that the game will have an extra year to be polished and perfected. After all, as the saying goes, a game that is delayed for an extra year will be better than one that is rushed.
