- Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a brand-new third-person shooter by Rocksteady Studios.
- The game’s early access release has been met with a ton of negative reception by fans and critics.
- As per a new report, refund searches for the game on search engines have spiked dramatically.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been out for about a day or so now, and things do not look good for the third-person shooter at all. Amid other controversies, bugs, and technical issues aside, the game launched to a totally broken single-player mode that presented itself as already completed before players could even begin playing.
As such, a new report by popular trends analyst McLuck has revealed that search requests for Suicide Squad’s refunds have gone up almost 800% (thanks Windows Central), highlighting that many have seemingly started to regret their purchase and now want their money back. To make matters worse, Suicide Squad is only available via early access right now for those who got it Deluxe Edition.
That means the full release of the game is still a couple of days away, so I’m not sure what type of whirlwind that musters up when an added array of players start logging into Suicide Squad’s servers. For now, though, one thing is clear—early impressions of this long-awaited continuation of the Batman: Arkham franchise have been nothing but terrible thus far.
McLuck calls Suicide Squad’s launch “glitch-ridden,” while detailing how the frequency of Suicide Squad’s “refunds” searches has surged up by 791%, to be precise. Now, one would argue how can this be if the game isn’t even out yet globally, but the point of Suicide Squad getting taken down by Rocksteady a mere hour into launch stands tall, with the dev pulling the servers for several hours before the title could go live again.

What’s Going On With The Whole Suicide Squad Scenario?
I’ll break it down for you quick and simple: Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been under fire for as long as one can remember, but principally, the hate started to spread right when it was announced that the game would use a live-service model, pretty much in tandem with WB’s future business aspirations.
From then on, people have been frowning upon this game, with some looking out for some hope, thinking that the shooter could turn out good in some capacity.
Then came the closed alphas, and the previews, where major gaming outlets came forward and expressed how the majority of Suicide Squad’s gameplay is uninspired, and just … not good. The final nail in the coffin arrived only recently when publications reported a rejection when asking Suicide Squad devs for the game’s review codes. The title is two days away from release at present, and there’s not a single review of it out there.
