The Gotham Knights release date has been delayed until 2022 at the minimum, disappointing fans who were looking forward to the next great game in the Batman universe.
Gotham Knights is a game with a somewhat unusual premise — it doesn't actually feature Batman. Batman has died and the criminal world is running rampant in the city of Gotham. It's up to the Caped Crusader's friends and family — Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, and Red Hood — to save the city. The game was announced last summer. Unfortunately, it looks like we're going to be waiting a little while longer before we'll get to play it.
Why Was the Gotham Knights Release Date Delayed?
The Gotham Knights release date delay didn't get much in the way of a detailed explanation, unfortunately. A tweet from the game's official account includes a short statement explaining the situation.
Gotham Knights Will Now Launch Worldwide in 2022
We are giving the game more time to deliver the best possible experience for players. 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.
Previously, the game was announced as launching sometime in 2021. Seeing a delay of an upcoming game is not particularly unusual, especially considering the many challenges that developers have had to face under new remote work schemes that were implemented as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
When is the Gotham Knights Release Date?
The new Gotham Knights release date will be sometime in 2022. Unfortunately, WB Games Montreal declined to provide a specific release date, much less a release window — bear in mind, this game could potentially come out at the end of 2022.
