Gotham Knights, the following game in Warner’s Batman arrangement (kind of—additional on that underneath) has been deferred. At the point when it was reported in August 2020 it was scheduled for discharge in 2021, yet Warner Bros said in a short declaration today that it’s chosen to drive it into 2022.
“We are giving the game more opportunity to convey the most ideal experience for players,” Warner Bros tweeted. “Much thanks to you to our astounding fans for your colossal help of Gotham Knights. We anticipate displaying a greater amount of the game in the coming months.”
Nothing was said concerning why the game was postponed, however it wouldn’t be outlandish to figure that Covid-19 may be a factor. 33% of designers reacting to a July 2020 GDC overview detailed their tasks had been deferred by the pandemic, and the circumstance has not incredibly improved from that point forward.
With respect to the guaranteed “kind of” clarification, Gotham Knights is a Batman brawler, however it isn’t set in the Arkham universe. It would seem that an Arkham game, with different Batpeople working to better society by placing trivial lawbreakers in the clinic, it’s being distributed by a similar organization (albeit created by an alternate studio—Arkham Asylum, City, and Knight were totally made by Rocksteady), and even seems to get generally the latest relevant point of interest, which closes—spoilers ahead!— with the clear passing of Batman.
In any case, the Arkham arrangement is being proceeded through Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, for reasons unknown, while Gotham Knights turns off on an alternate progression. Which is somewhat suitable for a game dependent on a comic book, I assume.
Self destruction Squad: Kill the Justice League is likewise expected to be out in 2022, incidentally, yet that was the arrangement from the beginning.
