Gotham Knights has been delayed, the new co-op successor to the Arkham series is no longer set to release in 2021, and now has a release window of 2022.
WB Games Montreal had previously said the release date for Gotham Knights would arrive some time in 2021, and in an update to its official Twitter account it revealed that plan was no longer in the cards. We’ll have to wait until 2022 to descend upon Gotham with the Bat-family. Here’s the message from Gotham Knights’ official Twitter account:
“We are giving the game more time to deliver the best possible experience for players. Thank you to our amazing fans for your tremendous support of Gotham Knights. We look forward to showcasing more of the games in the coming months.”
First announed at the DC Fandome special event back in August of 2020, WB Montreal had confirmed that we would be getting a standalone story apart from Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy. In this version of Gotham, Batman is dead, before his death, Batman put a call out to Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin to reunite at the Belfry and be the heroes that stand between Gotham and anyone looking to cause it and it’s people harm.
Here is the full description of the game from the official Gotham Knights website:
Batman is dead. A new expansive, criminal underworld has swept the streets of Gotham City. It is now up to the Batman Family; Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin; to protect Gotham, bring hope to its citizens, discipline to its cops, and fear to its criminals. From solving mysteries that connect the darkest chapters in the city’s history to defeating notorious villains in epic confrontations, you must evolve into the new Dark Knight and save the streets from descent into chaos.
