Gotham Knights finally gets a release date

After being delayed by over a year, Warner Bros. has confirmed that Gotham Knights will launch on October 25.


Batman fans, rejoice! After a year-long delay, WB Games Montreal's action-RPG co-op title finally got a release date and it will be here just in time for Halloween. The studio confirmed Gotham Knights' October 25 release date just as fans were expecting the game to be a part of Sony's State of Play event. Although the highly anticipated project didn't make it to the showcase, the news is still very welcome after months of radio silence.

After being delayed for over a year, most gamers have high hopes for Gotham Knights.

Gotham Knights is one of two Warner Bros.' DC Comics titles set to release later this year. It is not connected to Rocksteady Studios' Arkham trilogy, which is actually getting a sequel in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.

WBIE first revealed Gotham Knights at the first DC FanDome event in 2020. The game features a Batman-less Bat-family with Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin, and Red Hood all coming to Gotham following the apparent demise of their adoptive father. From what we've seen so far, the story of the game will revolve around the Court of Owls, a secretive organization that, in the comic books, has existed for centuries with roots that are embedded deep within Gotham City.

As we might have already mentioned, Gotham Knights will support a co-op multiplayer campaign for two.

It definitely appears that Gotham Knights will have a gripping tale to tell featuring one of DC Comics' most interesting criminal organizations.

In an earlier report, we speculated that Gotham Knights could be here soon. Unfortunately, it appears that we were mistaken. Although Gotham Knights' October release date still falls within the 2022 release window, it spells bad news for WBIE's other DC Comics game. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is still technically set to launch this year, but the lack of information about the game in recent months suggests that it is going to be delayed as the studio would prefer to stagger its two big AAA comic book video games.

At the moment, there are conflicting reports on Kill the Justice League. Whereas the studio's official Brazilian Twitter account confirmed the game for 2022, a subsequent report from Bloomberg claims otherwise, with WarnerMedia CEO Jason Killar excluding the game in the studio's lineup of releases for this year.
