The second episode of Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Season 1 is here, and it adds new enemies, cosmetics, skills and more.

One thing it won't have, though, are weekly developer updates, as Rocksteady winds back its communications for the loot-shooter.

The game has seen a declining player base in recent months, but while die-hards stick to the supervillain caper, Rocksteady's withdrawal of its weekly blog posts will likely concern even the most steadfast Task Force X member.

In the latest developer update from May 31, the post goes over some of the Episode 2 content before signing off by saying "Now that both Episodes for Season 1 are in your hands, our developer updates will change from being weekly to releasing them when we have big news to share about future content.

"We hope this will make the release of each new update an exciting event, while keeping you all up to date on all the happening with the game!"

Live service games often have a weekly blog post since they offer weekly activity rotations. Bungie has long curated the "This Week at Bungie" which became "This Week in Destiny", but the removal of a weekly update could suggest a change in communications strategy from Rocksteady.

With a significant portion of the post dedicated to clearing up the Game Mode and Nexus Screens, many are worried it could be too late for the superpowered shooter. The game's second season will reportedly introduce Mrs Freeze as a playable character.

In our review, I awarded Kill The Justice League 3.5 out of 5, noting how fun the story was and how much I enjoyed my time with its characters, while also pointing out how dull the loot system and endgame activities felt.

I said, "Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League, live service ambitions aside, is a fun shooter that feels like the closest you’ll get to a virtual DC Comics theme park; it looks great, and it’s full of recognisable characters."
