The highly anticipated release of the Suicide Squad game by Rocksteady Studios, known for their success with the Batman: Arkham series, has taken an unexpected turn. A bug has been identified that automatically completes the entire campaign as soon as players log into the game for the first time.
This glitch has forced Rocksteady to take drastic measures, leading to the temporary shutdown of Suicide Squad servers, leaving players who eagerly paid $100 for early access in a state of frustration and disappointment.
A Suicide Squad Bug Auto Completes the Campaign
The bug in question is not a minor inconvenience; it is a game-breaking issue that fundamentally alters the player experience. Upon logging into Suicide Squad for the first time, a substantial number of players found themselves faced with an unexpected situation – their entire story had been completed automatically.
Acknowledging the severity of the issue, Rocksteady promptly addressed the problem on their official Twitter account, @suicidesquadRS.
They stated, “We’re aware that a number of players are currently experiencing an issue whereby upon logging into the game for the first time, they have full story completion. To resolve this issue, we will be performing maintenance on the game servers. During this time, the game will be unavailable. We expect this to take several hours and will update once we have more information. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
While Rocksteady’s commitment to resolving the problem is commendable, the frustration among players is palpable. Many had eagerly anticipated playing Suicide Squad with the Deluxe Edition early access, only to find themselves facing a completed game without ever experiencing the thrill of progressing through the story.
The bug comes at a particularly unfortunate time, as early access for Deluxe Edition owners is rolling out across the next 24 hours. This means that those who paid a premium for early entry into the Suicide Squad world are now left with a disrupted experience.
The normal release, scheduled for February 2nd, 2024, adds another layer of complexity to the situation.
