Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has an Underwhelming Early Access player count
Suicide Squad’s early access player peak is an early sign of failure
Rocksteady Games’ Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League launches tomorrow, but the game has been available in early access for several days now. Purchasers of the game’s $99.99 Digital Deluxe Edition can play the game early. We’ve had a look at the game’s early access player counts, and they are not impressive.
So far, Suicide Squad has managed to hit an all-time player peak of 7,152. For context, that isn’t high enough to place Suicide Squad on Steam’s top 100 most played games list. While the game is not officially available yet, this is not a high player count for a big budget AAA release. Last year, Starfield had a peak player count of over 200,000 players during the game’s premium early access launch.
At the time of writing, the combined concurrent player counts of Batman Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, Arkham Origins and Arkham Knight is higher than Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. That’s not a good sign for Warner Bros’ new live service game. While Suicide Squad will see its player count increase when the game exits its premium early access, I don’t think Warner Bros has a hit on their hands.
If you are wondering why there are no reviews for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, it’s because Warner Bros only issued review code when the game’s premium early access started. This is a clear sign that Warner Bros are not confident about their game. If they were confident, they would have given reviewers early access to their games, allowing them to release reviews ahead of the game’s launch.
