This does not seem to bode well considering how close to launch it is. Most likely explanation seems that they needed the resources for the new gen versions. Getting an Avengers vibe from this game tbh.

You nailed it. It does seem to have that low tier Superhero game look to it like The Avengers or even the Deadpool game. Nothing like Rocksteady's Batman games or the new quality stuff we're getting like Imsoniac's Spider-man.

Which makes me optimistic for Rocksteady's next project! I wish Suicide Squad was coming out this year :(

Ditto! I love the Suicide Squad comics so I hope their first game will be a home run!

Standard Edition ($69.99)
Deluxe Edition ($89.99)
Collector’s Edition ($299.99)

This is what gets me. The audacity to charge your first adopters and most passionate fans these prices when we all know we can wait 4 months and it'll be discounted to $50.

I guess they didn't like that the PS4/XOne prices would be $59.99

I like how PC is the only version would be $59.99

It may be next gen (current gen) but it looks like last gen

That's a good thing, but overall, the game just looks uninspired and boring. Easy pass for me.

Looks like Warner Bros is ready to cut and run from its games division.

That's a shame. I have always liked last-gen versions of games. My favourite being Rise of the Tomb Raider on xbox 360.

It's like a farewell lap for the previous generation

Huge shame but it is what it is

Considering it was a crossgen game until know it doesn't seem like it will benefit from being next-gen only, most likely it was just running to poor on last gen.

I don't think ditching PS4 and Xbox One versions could make this game a true 9th gen, it's still Unreal Engine 4 powered.

No, it's still going to look and feel like a cross-gen game, just without the last-gen release. It's too far into development to make it a true 9th gen experience.

Hmm, understandable. The combat in the preview looked unfinished/unpolished. I was more interested in this than Suicide Squad.

Forgot this game existed.
