Now Playing: Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League | Season 1 - Meet the Joker Trailer

One hacker has unlocked Season 2's Deathstroke for use in the game--alongside all of his character gear--although the character model can't be viewed online by other players in a co-op session. Other leaks (via IGN) allegedly show unreleased character skins for the game's roster and new gear said to be arriving later in Suicide Squad's next season.

Warner Bros. has been policing social media to remove anything related to these assets, as it has issued several takedown notices on X/Twitter so far. A few months ago, dataminers also unearthed files for several other characters said to be coming to the game in the future, including the aforementioned Deathstroke, Lawless, and Mrs. Freeze.

Suicide Squad's first season--Season of Jokes--recently launched, adding a new Elseworlds incarnation of the Joker to the game. Arriving two months after the game was first released on PC and console, the DLC has been criticized for its grind-heavy approach, recycled missions, and the extremely tedious nature of unlocking new tiers on the battle pass.

Suicide Squad on Steam has struggled with low player numbers with launch, and at the time of writing, it had a 24-hour peak of 840 players. Warner Bros. recently said the game had fallen short of its expectations, but the company still plans to focus heavily on free-to-play and mobile games in the future.
