Rocksteady Halts Suicide Squad Game Due to Major Bug

In an unforeseen turn of events, developer Rocksteady Studios was compelled to pull the highly anticipated Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League from servers merely an hour into its early access phase. This drastic measure was taken due to a critical bug that caused the game to auto-complete for players upon their first login.

The game, set to officially release on February 2, 2024, offered early access to those who purchased the Deluxe Edition, allowing them to play 72 hours in advance. The first players to experience the game were in New Zealand, with many international players employing a region trick on Xbox consoles to gain early access.

However, the excitement was short-lived as Rocksteady swiftly took the servers offline. The studio issued a statement acknowledging the issue: "We’re aware that a number of players are currently experiencing an issue whereby upon logging into the game for the first time, they have full story completion."

To address this, Rocksteady announced a maintenance period for the game servers, rendering the game unavailable for several hours. The studio apologized for the inconvenience caused to the players eagerly awaiting their turn in the Arkhamverse.

This setback follows several delays in the game's release, adding to the anticipation and expectations surrounding it. The game is set to be available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam.
