Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League already 40% off on Steam

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is already 40% off its recommended retail price on Steam, another strong indicator that the game is not where Warner Bros. would like it to be.

News in brief

  • Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is enjoying a hefty 40% off on Steam
  • Warner Bros. has been open about its disappointment with the game
  • Season 1 of DLC is on the way, but will it save the game?


Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League isn't even two months old, having released on February 2 of this year, so seeing such a hefty discount so early on is something of a surprise. It's not a short-running flash sale either, with the discount due to last all the way until March 21. It's hard to see this as anything other than a scream for sales from the publisher, Warner Bros.

To say Suicide Squad has been a disappointment for Warner Bros. is an understatement. Reports of its financial results showed that Suicide Squad had been considered a real let down by the company, and highlighted how badly it compared to releases from last year, particularly the blockbuster Hogwarts Legacy. In a lot of ways, this isn't a fair comparison, as Suicide Squad was beset with major issues from day one, from server issues which stopped gamers playing their single-player game, to bugs which unlocked the entire game for new players. Reviews were also less than stellar, as was the outrage from fans when it became clever how certain characters were treated in the storyline.

Warner Bros. isn't about to give up, however. Season one of the game's DLC is on the way, with Joker to the forefront of the first piece of new content. There have also been a number of rumors that the game's narrative may not be what it seems, and there could be some major twists on the way that will (hopefully) pull back fans. However, it remains to be seen whether this strategy works. Warner Bros. has expressed hope that a focus on live service games will pay dividends for it in the long term, even though the Arkham series Suicide Squad is based on was ferociously single-player, and, many would argue, the better for it.
