WB Games Montreal’s spiritual successor to Rocksteady’s critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham Trilogy, Gotham Knights, will not be released until 2022. The developer revealed the delay in a tweet this afternoon, which explained that the decision was made so the Gotham Knight team could have more time to deliver a quality experience. WB Games Montreal also noted that it would be showing more of Gotham Knights in the coming months.
“We are giving the game more time to deliver the best possible experience for players,” Warner Bros. Montreal’s message reads. “Thank you to our amazing fans for your tremendous support of Gotham Knights. We look forward to showcasing more of the game in the coming months.”
Originally announced in August last year during a DC digital showcase event, WB Games Montreal’s Gotham Knights will allow Batman fans to step into the boots of various members of the Bat Family as they go on an adventure to unravel the mystery of the Dark Knight’s purported death. Gotham Knights can be enjoyed as a single-player experience or with a friend via co-op.
“Batman is dead,” a game description reads. “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.”
