Following the delay of Hogwarts Legacy, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that Gotham Knights has also been delayed. Instead of 2021, the action adventure title will now release in 2022. Over on Twitter, Warner Bros. Games Montreal said that it’s giving the game “more time to deliver the best possible experience for players.”
It also “looks forward to showcasing more of the game in the coming months.” While the COVID-19 pandemic wasn’t explicitly stated as a reason, it’s likely to have had an impact on development over the past year. How will this impact the release of Suicide Squad, which is currently slated for next year from Rocksteady? We’ll have to wait and find out.
Gotham Knights is in development for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S and PS5. It’s set in a brand new timeline where Batman has “died” and the Court of Owls threatens to take over Gotham City. As a member of the Bat Family, players will control Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin to restore order to the city. Along with upgrades and unique abilities for each character, the title also supports co-op for up to two players.
