Warner Bros. recently reported in their quarterly earnings that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has cost them a staggering $200 million since its launch. This news was not received well by the company's CEO, David Zaslav, and CFO, Gunnar Wiedenfels, who openly admitted their disappointment in the game's performance.

The quarterly earnings report highlighted a significant year-over-year decline in Warner's revenue, mainly due to the underwhelming reception of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. CFO Wiedenfels addressed this decline stating, "The $400 million-plus year-over-year decline during Q1 was primarily due to the very tough comp we faced in games against the success of Hogwarts Legacy last year in the first quarter, in conjunction with the disappointing Suicide Squad release this past quarter, which we impaired, leading to a $200 million impact to EBITDA during the first quarter."

CEO David Zaslav also expressed his disappointment in the game's launch, aligning with the sentiments of many players who found the game lacking. Despite hopes for a turnaround in future seasons, the current framework may not be sufficient to redeem the title. There is concern for Rocksteady, the game's developer, especially in light of industry layoffs and closures.

While fans remain optimistic for Rocksteady's future projects, the disappointment surrounding Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League serves as a cautionary tale in the gaming industry. Hopefully, this setback will pave the way for a much stronger return to form for the acclaimed developer.
