Gotham Knights: Don’t Expect The Joker In The Game Either! [VIDEO]

Warner Bros. Montreal (who last released a game nearly a decade ago with Batman: Arkham Origins), the game won’t just be missing him.


There was a fan Q&A at San Diego Comic-Con, where Patrick Redding, creative director of the studio developing Gotham Knights, stressed that Batman is seriously dead in the game’s history. It was reported by IGN, and it’s not supposed to be the case that we end up seeing the opposite in the final scene. Joker will not be in the cast either, but Redding has already made a divisive statement about Harley Quinn (“I will not confirm or deny whether Harley is [in the game]”). Let’s not forget that Harley Quinn is the “poster child” for the DC comic book universe these days, so her appearance will be almost mandatory…

What about Riddler’s puzzles? If you were expecting to get a lot of puzzles from him in WB Montreal’s game, you’d better accept that he’ll only have one puzzle. But don’t put your scepticism in the pantry either! For example, before the release of Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady claimed that Arkham Knight was a completely original character when it turned out that this was not the case…

Let’s not forget that WB Montreal’s game is not set in the same universe as Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham games, but the Quebec-based studio doesn’t have to go far for marketing mistakes! Before the launch of Batman: Arkham Origins, the studio said that Black Mask would be a significant villain in the game, only to be contradicted by the fact that Joker has taken over the baton from him.

Gotham Knights also got a new trailer for San Diego Comic-Con, which we’ve embedded below. Starring Batgirl, who beats her opponents with an electric tonfa. The game will be released on October 25 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC. It’s also one of the titles that dropped the PlayStation 4/Xbox One duo in development (the other being Skull & Bones).
