WB Games Montreal’s Gotham Knights received a new trailer recently, this time focusing on Barbara Gordon as Batgirl. Each member of the team has had time to shine over the past few months but there’s still lingering doubt as to whether Batman makes an appearance or not.

Unfortunately, fans looking for a late-game twist and potentially playable Dark Knight won’t get their wish. During a fan Q&A at San Diego Comic-Con (via IGN), creative director Patrick Redding said that Batman is “really dead.” While his death occurs in the initial ten minutes, he’ll remain that way until the very end. Interestingly, while Redding confirmed that the Joker wasn’t in the game, he said, “I will not confirm or deny whether Harley is.”

While nothing was said about Riddler Trophies making a comeback, it was noted that “exactly one” question mark for the villain is present throughout the game. Whether this means an appearance by Edward Nygma himself or an Easter egg remains to be seen. Interestingly, Redding also noted custom dialogue and cinematics depending on which character was being controlled at any given point.

This could indicate that certain scenes play out slightly differently based on the character present. Gotham Knights is out on October 25th for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
