GOTHAM KNIGHTS Delayed Until 2022 In Order To "Deliver The Best Possible Experience For Players"

A firm 2021 release date for Gotham Knights was never revealed by WB Games. Montreal, but it's now been confirmed that we'll be waiting to play this one until at least next year. Read on for details...

During last August's DC FanDome event, WB Games. Montreal announced Gotham Knights, a game which takes us to Gotham City in the wake of the Caped Crusader's death in Batman: Arkham Knight

That means players will take control of members of the Bat Family: Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin, and perhaps most intriguingly, Red Hood. Having tried out most of those in DLC for previous instalments of the Arkham series, that promises to be a lot of fun, and the trailers released so far have looked great.

Unfortunately, the game is no longer set to arrive in stores in 2021 as planned. 

As you can see in the statement below, the plan is for Gotham Knights to now be released in 2022 in order to "deliver the best possible experience for players." In other words, the co-op title simply won't be done in time, and the studio surely doesn't want a Cyberpunk 2077 situation on its hands! 

"Batman is dead," reads the synopsis. "It is now up to the Batman Family - Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin - to protect Gotham City, bring hope to its citizens, discipline to its cops, and fear to its criminals. You must evolve into the new Dark Knight and save Gotham from chaos."

Here's the official announcement about Gotham Knights' release date delay:
