Although it was removed shortly after its release, this may be a sign that more news for the video game is coming soon.
Last Friday saw the unveiling of The Batman, much to the delight of masses of fans worldwide. And that includes those who are passionate about video games, who have been patiently awaiting news of Gotham Knights. They’ve been reluctant to come out, but according to various sources, a cancelled public beta appeared on Steam this weekend shortly after it was made known.
As we read in PCGamesN, this test version was released by Warner Bros. Games’ Montreal production was only available for a few minutes before it was withdrawn and had a rather massive download size of 82.5 GB. Some details about this “Gotham Knights Playtest” can be accessed via SteamDB.
The team responsible has not commented on this information, which can be seen as a preview of upcoming news for the co-operative role-playing and action-adventure game starring Batgirl, Red Hood, Nightwing and Robin (Tim Drake). However, we will have to wait for more details.
What’s for sure is that interest in Gotham Knights was renewed a few weeks ago. The premiere of the game for PC, PlayStation and Xbox would be the first in a new generation of Warner Bros. superhero video games, which would be followed, in theory, later this year, barring any delays, by Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, and then Wonder Woman, developed by the creators of Shadow of Mordor.
On the other hand, Batman’s presence is expected in MultiVersus, a free-to-play Super Smash Bros. game featuring characters from various WarnerMedia IPs.
