Despite the controversy and criticism, Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League has been the best-selling physical game of the past week in the UK. The first sales data is starting to come in.
Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League is now available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC after generating a lot of criticism, controversy, and many doubts among players and fans of the DC villain universe.
Rocksteady has released Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League while all sorts of knives have been flying over Warner Bros’ misguided approach to turning this high-potential game into a service title.
First data of Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League
After registering very few players in its early access, the commercial flop seemed evident, but at least in the UK, Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League has recorded “good sales”. It is the best-selling physical game of the past week.
According to Christopher Dring, journalist and analyst at GamesIndustry.biz, the game is the best-selling in the country ahead of Persona 3 Reload. Although there is no unit figure, some comparisons have been provided.
Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League has sold fewer physical games in its release in the UK than Tekken 8, but more than The Last of Us 2 Remastered, two of the strongest releases so far in 2024.
As far as superheroes are concerned, Rocksteady’s game has sold half as much as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy in its first week on sale. Therefore, despite being larger figures than expected, it falls short of other important releases.
This clearly shows that service games in the superhero genre perform much worse than those focused on storytelling and single-player development, like Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, a game that was negatively impacted by Marvel’s Avengers. This is how we have evaluated Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League:
Beneath all that daily rewards, weapons with numerical percentages, and seasons full of promises, there is a genuinely funny and tremendously fun game from Rocksteady. A game that has turned out much better than we expected…But also deserved much, much more.
