After a delay in the in the past, WB Games Montreal has finally set a firm release date on the wide world Bat family game Gotham Knights.
The game was originally scheduled to release sometime this year, but the update that was released in the month of March showed it was delayed until 2022 to “deliver the best possible experience for players.” The game’s publisher has confirmed it will be released on October 25, 2022. Gotham Knights will release on the 25th of October, 2022.
WB Games Montreal has been relatively quiet since the announcement of the delay, with the exception of an October 2021 trailer that introduced the vile Court of Owls. Rumours of a possible release date were already developing last week after a playtest version of the game appeared briefly on Steam but then disappeared completely (thanks, PCGamesN). If the playtest is public or a private one is yet to be determined, but it’ll be interesting to see the work that this team is making changes to the game over the delay.
Gotham Knights is set to follow the footsteps of some of Batman’s proteges–Robin, Batgirl, Red Hood and Nightwing after Brucey is believed to be killed after an accident. While it’s an WB Games endeavour, it’s not connected to the Arkham games.
