Gotham Knights, The next game in the Batman series from Warner (kind of – more on that below) is overdue. When it was announced in August 2020, it was scheduled to launch in 2021, but Warner Bros. said in a brief announcement today that it had decided to push it to 2022.
“We are giving the game more time to provide the best possible experience for players,” Warner Bros wrote on Twitter. “Thanks to our amazing fans for your tremendous support for Gotham Knights. We look forward to showing more of the game in the coming months.”
Nothing has been said about why the game was so delayed, but it wouldn’t be unreasonable to speculate that Covid-19 might be a factor. A third of developers who responded to a GDC poll in July 2020 reported that their projects were The epidemic is delayedThe situation has not improved significantly since then.
As for the promised “kind” interpretation, Gotham Knights is Brave Batman, but she is It is not set in the Arkham universe. Sounds like an Arkham game, in which several Batpeople work to improve society by putting petty criminals in the hospital, it is published by the same company (although developed by a different studio – Arkham Asylum, City, and Knight are all made by Rocksteady), and even looks like It picks up roughly where Arkham Knight stops, and which ends – spoilers ahead! Batman’s apparent death.
But the Arkham series continues through Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice LeagueFor some reason, as Gotham Knights takes place in a different continuity. And it’s a decent type of comic book-based game, I think.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is also expected to launch in 2022, but that’s been the plan from the start.
