Rocksteady Studios has been deep in the development of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League; and as it nears its 2023 release, the studio is about to be missing two of its largest components.
Studio heads Sefton Hill and Jamie Walker have announced that, even though the game is “nearly finished,” they won’t be around to see it. The duo confirmed they will leave the developer at the end of 2022.
“Now with Suicide Squad in safe hands, and the team here stronger than ever, it’s time to hand over the reins, and for us to start a new adventure together in games,” the duo said in a statement.
David Hadded, the president of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, spoke on the departures, thanking the duo for their efforts on the Batman Arkham games and saying “their evolutionary thinking” will help push Suicide Squad when it drops next year.
There’s no word on where the team will go next, but a new studio could possibly happen. In the meantime, Nathan Burlow will take over at Studio Director, while Darius Sadeghian will be Studio Product Developer.
We wish Hill and Walker the best of luck in wherever they go next!
