Gotham Knights is an upcoming action role-playing video game based on the DC Comics character Batman and his supporting cast. The game is being developed by WB Games Montréal and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It is set to be released in 2021 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. It was first revealed at DC FanDome in August 2020.
The game’s story takes place some time after Batman’s apparent death. With the GCPD having grown corrupt following James Gordon’s death, there is a rise of crime and lawlessness in the city, leaving Batman’s allies Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin, and Red Hood as the only ones able to restore justice to Gotham and prevent it from descending into chaos. At some point during the game, the heroes will come into conflict with the Court of Owls, a secret criminal society that is as old as Gotham itself, and their legion of brainwashed assassins called Talons.
Watch the world premiere of Gotham Knights. Batman is dead. It is now up to the Batman Family – Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin – to protect Gotham City, bring hope to its citizens, discipline to its cops, and fear to its criminals. You must evolve into the new Dark Knight and save Gotham from chaos.
Your legacy begins now. Step into the Knight.
