Rocksteady Halts Suicide Squad’s Early Access

Suicide Squad’s Early Access Comes to a Halt After Players Experience Auto-Completion Bug Upon Launch

Rocksteady, the developer behind Suicide Squad, faced a setback when an unforeseen bug disrupted the game’s early access release. Players, eager to delve into the action-packed world, encountered a glitch that automatically marked the game as completed upon logging in for the first time.

The glitch surfaced during the early access period granted to Deluxe Edition purchasers, offering a 72-hour head start before the official release on February 2. New Zealand, the first territory to initiate the early access, became the stage for this unexpected development.

Within an hour of the game’s launch, Rocksteady decided to take swift action by shutting down the servers. The studio communicated the temporary downtime to players, stating that it needed to investigate and address the auto-completion bug. The maintenance process, anticipated to last several hours, left players awaiting a resolution.

Rocksteady released a statement addressing the issue, saying, “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 resolve this issue, we will be performing maintenance on the game servers.”

Despite multiple delays in the game’s development, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is scheduled for release on February 2, 2024, across PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam. The unforeseen bug and subsequent server downtime added a layer of frustration to the highly anticipated early access period.
