This will be 2024's Babylon’s Fall that team was yelling more content soon even as the power cord was being pulled. It crazy how square sold dlc but it was never tossed out 0 issues there.

It still boggles my mind that so many studios are insistent on these live service games but struggle to support them for more than a few months.

People see these titans fall, especially Rocksteady with a great track record with the iconic Arkham Batman games and STILL go

“Yeah. Let’s go Live Service, we won’t end up like them”

I honestly feel WBs new trajectory for their gaming division Is a huge reason why Rocksteady made this failure.

blackblades59d ago

Right, Helldiver 2 been getting content left and right. These studios need a wake up call. I blame WB i bet they had something to do with it.

They did rocksteady had plans for a batman beyond game superman game even wanted to to there own justice league.

Back in 2008 when the arkham verse began they had the talent behind the 90's/early 2k animated shows over time wb fired that team today very very few remain. That is why kevin/mark lent there voices because it was a relationship with rocksteady kind of a btas 2.0 revision deal

All the ideas were scrapped with hints of a unannounced big project then of course 2-3 years ago we got that trailer at e3.

I mean I get why the idea is appealing: You build a game universe and your responsibility from here is not to keep making new games, but to produce new content for a game you've already made. Far less demanding and is much better for cost efficiency.

You are right to say that they struggle to support them for more than a few months, but I think this game and those like it getting (rightfully) panned out of the gate is also affecting even the developers' interest (or perhaps budget) to make more content for it.The fact that they're pulling out Joker for Season 1 is not a good sign at all. Adding him with little other content really seems like a Hail Mary. It would be like if Smash Ultimate was doing poorly and the first new guest character was Sephiroth.

The other challenge of these types of games is timely season releases. If you want to keep people's attention, new compelling content needs to be on time. That's likely to result in crunch and misery (and ultimately a worse product).

The best chance a Live Service game has, in my opinion, is easing up on the budget and team size (AA, at most) and making a great gameplay loop on day 1. Helldivers II did exactly that and the game was the breakout hit of February. Don't break the bank, test the waters, and if you've got a great product, keep supporting it. As long as you reel in the budget, there is far less need for aggressive monetization throughout the life of the product, too.

The worst looking joker i have ever seen

I didn't think I would see a worst looking joker than Jared Leto's

Honestly the Joker looks like something out of Fortnite and also looks like he pitches left field.

I’m sure the 42 people still playing are super stoked for this. Better take the day off so you can grind for 4 hours just to use the character. Let me guess, he’s got his own Elseworld and there’s fucking icicles everywhere. /s

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Players Lose Hope For Season 2 After Update

The remaining few players of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League are losing hope for the game’s future after a disappointing update for Episode 2.

P_Bomb8d ago

“…significant issues like the extensive amount of time needed to unlock Joker as a playable character were ignored.”

Which in turn makes the game easier to ignore. Not a great season.

SoloGamer18d ago

all 150 players lose hope 😂

Redgrave8d ago

Who still held hope after release?
