    Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, Rocksteady’s foray into the live service genre, has had a turbulent journey. Despite being set in the beloved Arkhamverse, the game’s critical reception fell flat, and player numbers have remained low. This led to questions about the future of post-launch content.

    Roadmap Completion Assured (Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League)

    Publisher Warner Bros. has confirmed to IGN that Rocksteady will fulfill the existing roadmap for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. This includes a total of four seasons of content, each introducing a new playable character, three environments, fresh weapons, themed gear, activities, and mid-season updates.

    Season 1 introduced the Joker, and Rocksteady has teased Mrs. Freeze for Season 2. Dataminers suggest Lawless and Deathstroke might follow.

    Beyond Season 4? A Shrouded Future

    However, Warner Bros. remained tight-lipped about any plans beyond the first year. Their statement to IGN simply reads, “We are not yet discussing anything that is not announced.” This lack of clarity leaves players wondering about the game’s long-term support.

    A Flopped Departure from Arkham

    Fan frustration likely stems from the game’s significant deviation from the single-player Arkham series. Rocksteady’s previous Batman titles, particularly Batman: Arkham City, are revered as genre-defining masterpieces. Suicide Squad’s live service format, coupled with a villainous Batman, clashed with expectations.

    A $200 Million Hit

    The game’s shortcomings translated to financial losses. Warner Bros. acknowledged that the title’s failure contributed to a $200 million revenue hit.

    What’s Next? Roadmap Content and Beyond

    So, what can players expect? Season 2 and beyond will offer a steady stream of new content. However, the question remains – will it be enough to reignite interest in the game? Season 1’s Joker addition failed to significantly increase player numbers, casting doubt on the ability of lesser-known characters like Mrs. Freeze, Lawless, and Deathstroke to do so.

    Only time will tell what Rocksteady has planned after completing the roadmap for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. While the current roadmap promises new content, the lack of information about long-term support leaves players with a sense of uncertainty.
