The longer Gotham Knights simmers in my mind, the more I actively want to play it. I have reservations, sure – can WB Games Montréal really juggle co-op and character progression and everything else at this scale? – but even if the game ultimately falls short of the Arkham legacy, I’m very much in.
That said, a lot could change in a year. Chris sent me a vague Slack message this morning about “Gotham,” and in my pre-coffee funk, I could only assume he was talking about this. For once, he wasn’t!
In a short and not-so-sweet tweet, WB Games Montréal said that it needs “more time to deliver the best possible experience for players,” and as such, Gotham Knights has been delayed out of 2021.
“We look forward to showcasing more of the game in the coming months,” the studio added.
With the summer of streams looming in the uncomfortably close horizon, I’m sure they’ll have plenty of opportunities. I’m ready to hear about a whole bunch of 2021 games that are actually 2022 games.
