Suicide Squad Already Discounted By 30% One Month After Launch

Failed To Meet Sales Expectations!

Story Highlight
  • Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League proved to be a major disappointment.
  • In order to appeal to consumers, the title is now discounted by 30% just one month after launch.
  • The technique seems to be working, as the PS5 version of the game sold out today.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, developed by the studio behind the acclaimed Batman Arkham series, was eagerly anticipated by fans worldwide. However, upon release, the game failed to meet expectations and became a major disappointment.

Warner Bros acknowledged that Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League fell short of sales expectations. A prevailing critique of the game was that while it offered some enjoyment, it didn’t justify its $70 price tag.

The criticisms appear to have prompted action, as this live-service looter shooter is now discounted by 30% on both Amazon and Best Buy for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, just one month after its launch.

Why it matters: In the past, various games have gone on sale shortly after release. This is usually a worrying sign, making it even more concerning for a live-service title meant to last many years.

The game has an official listing of $70 on every platform but is now available for $50 on both Amazon and Best Buy for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, marking a $20 discount. The game is still up for $70 on PC, however.

The PS5 version of the game reportedly sold out on Amazon today, indicating a surge in interest following the discount. This suggests that the price reduction strategy implemented by Warner Bros has indeed contributed to a more positive reception of the game.

However, the game still has significant room for improvement and has not yet overcome the challenges it currently faces. Instances like these raise questions about whether the industry’s heightened emphasis on live-service titles should be reconsidered.

Even though most of the Batman Arkham games are over a decade old, they are still outperforming the recent release from Rocksteady Studios, which highlights a potential lack of interest from audiences.

However, Rocksteady Studios is releasing updates very often to fix the game. The team is looking to salvage Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, so future measures might include subscription releases, further discounts, and potential free trials.
