Suicide Squad Already Free With Prime Gaming 5 Months After Launch

Expert Verified By

Finally Time To Play Suicide Squad?

Story Highlights
  • Suicide Squad will be available for free for Prime Gaming subscribers starting from July 16. 
  • Prime Gaming users can redeem Suicide Squad through the Epic Games Store, but the offer lasts only two days.
  • The DC game has disappointed WB greatly after it cost millions in losses.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was something many were looking forward to, but it failed to meet expectations by a long shot. Now, less than six months since the launch, Suicide Squad is already going free.

Why it matters: According to reports, Warner Bros. expected Suicide Squad to become a billion-dollar-IP. However, the game has gone in the opposite direction.

Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League
Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League has been a disaster for Warner Bros.

Amazon has revealed a list of games coming to its subscription service for the month of July. The mix includes Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, Chivalry 2, and Rise of The Tomb Raider.

These titles will be redeemable on the Epic Games Store starting July 16. While this offer is excellent, it lasts for just 48 hours. Therefore, Prime Gaming subscribers need to be quick to ensure they gain access to all three of these.

Suicide Squad opted for a live service model for longevity, but that has badly backfired. According to official data, WB recorded a whopping $200 million in losses, blaming the DC game for this outcome.

As such, the game going free isn’t surprising. It has already been receiving huge discounts since its release. Previously, the price was slashed in half just a few months post-release. Suicide Squad is also struggling to retain players

Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League
Rocksteady’s latest release reportedly cost Warner Bros $200 million in loss.

A new season was supposed to be released today, introducing Mrs. Freeze. However, that, too, has been delayed due to some unforeseen circumstances and will come out on July 25. All in all, Suicide Squad continues to run into one hurdle after another.

Fortunately, Prime Gaming’s release might help the title regain some of its lost player base. However, this will most likely be a temporary boost since Rocksteady hasn’t been able to do enough to ensure players stick with the game for the long term.
