Gotham Knights has just been delayed despite the previous release date being quite close, scheduled for a generic 2021. However, WB Games Montreal has just found itself forced to delay the title to 2022, certainly leaving a bad taste in the mouth of millions of fans waiting for the new chapter on the four horsemen of Gotham.
An announcement that has certainly displaced many players and that considerably postpones the time needed to be able to try the project by hand. In fact, in the tweet that we leave you at the bottom of the article, we can read the following:
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.
In Gotham Knights, we will find ourselves in the shoes of the four knights of Gotham after the tragic and sudden death of Batman. This event will push the Bat-Family to face new threats in a city plunged into chaos, after the disappearance of the dark knight who until then had defended it.
In the roles of Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin we will therefore face the Court of Owls, a terrible new threat looming over Gotham and threatening to undermine the fragile balance of forces that existed long before Batman’s demise. The player will then be able to choose to use the characters in the company of a friend or alone by performing missions, being able to exchange their alter-ego for varied gameplay that will adapt to the fighting style of the individual knight used.
The game will allow the player to visit a Gotham that on paper will be the most lively and largest created by the developers of WB Games Montreal until now. A high-level title is therefore expected, with a multifaceted and very complex open world.
