Gotham Knights Release Officially Delayed To 2022
The COVID-19 pandemic has had wide-ranging implications for many industries in the world and video games have not been spared. The most noticeable way the industry has been impacted has been on the development side of things, with many studios shifting towards having employees work remotely for most of the past year. In the meantime, one game many have looked forward to seeing has been Gotham Knights, an extension of WB’s Batman series of games. Now, unfortunately, it has been confirmed that the Gotham Knights release date is being pushed to 2022 due to development delays.

Studio Warner Bros. Montréal announced the Gotham Knights release date delay on their official Twitter account this week. The game was initially expected to release late in 2021, but now the release window has been moved to 2022. No specific reason for the delay is given, but the decision is expected to be due to pandemic-related complications that come with having the majority of development employees working from home.
This would not be the first major game to experience a major delay in development the past year. So many titles, including The Last of Us Part II, Watch Dogs Legion, and Cyberpunk 2077 all chose to delay their releases ing the last year for similar quality reasons. With the game having four playable characters – Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, and Red Hood – this will certainly be a more challenging title than the previous Batman-focused games made by Warner Bros Montréal. Hopefully, the game is able to deliver on this ambitious vision and this added time might reduce any unneeded stress for developers. Fans just need to have a bit more patience. The long knight will be over soon.
