Game News Gotham Knights: Is this game without Batman the sequel to the Arkham saga? Warner Games closes the debate!
The vigilantes of the night are ready to fight! It must be said that the launch of Gotham Knights is fast approaching on PC and next-gen. However, a question still remains in the mouths of players: is Gotham Knights indeed the sequel to the Batman Arkham trilogy?
The Black Knight is no more, long live the Knights!
It was in 2009 that Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment are kicking off the anthill of superhero games by unveiling a certain Batman Arkham Asylum, a title that was unanimous and which scored 18 out of 20 in our columns. In addition to influencing many productions such as Marvel’s Spider-Man from Insomniac Games, the title has also had the right to several spin-offs and two sequels, the last of which is none other than Batman Arkham Knight, a game that depicts the death of the Black Knight; an idea shared by Gotham Knights, the game from Warner Bros. Games Montreal. It is obviously this last information that created the confusion: Is Gotham Knights the sequel to Batman Arkham Knight?
If Batman Arkham Knight and Gotham Knights share a common plot, and if Gotham Knights even seems to take place right after the events of Rocksteady Studios’ latest game, note that this is all purely coincidental.
Since the announcement of Gotham Knights, the team at Warner Bros. Games Montreal continues to specify that this new production expected for October 21 is completely independent of the adventures of Bruce Wayne in Batman Arkham. By the way, today we had the chance to interview Fleur Marty, the game’s Executive Producer, and she says once again that the two games take place on two completely different arcs.
Gotham Knights is in no way a sequel to the Arkham series. Is that clear enough? Fleur Marty (Executive Producer – Gotham Knights)
Will Batman be playable in Gotham Knights?
Although Warner Bros. Games Montreal has always claimed that Batman is indeed dead in Gotham Knights, some still hope that the studio has a little surprise in store for fans, that of being able to embody the Dark Knight, even a little bit. Know once again that it will not be in the game.
I’m sorry, but no, they won’t be playing Batman. He really is dead. Flower Marty
A blessing in disguise since, as a reminder, Gotham Knights will offer a total of four playable characters this time, namely Batgirl, Robin, Red Hood and Nightwing.
Gotham Knights will be available from October 21, 2022 on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. For more information, we suggest you read our preview by clicking on this link.
