This is the latest in a series of new game delays announced in 2021.
— Gotham Knights (@GothamKnights) March 19, 2021
Gotham Knights is a co-op take on the open-world Batman action game. Players can choose to play as either Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin, and Red Hood, each of whom has their own playstyle. Gotham Knights supports two-player co-op so a friend online can join you in an open-world Gotham City.
The reason why players will be taking on one of Batman’s trusty allies rather than the dark knight himself is because in Gotham Knights Batman is dead. Or at least that’s how the game opens.Gotham City itself will be a true open world and director Patrick Redding says there will be no level-gating whatsoever. So players can freely roam the city as they please, either swinging through the buildings or on a bat-cycle.
Gotham Knights is only the latest major video game release originally scheduled for 2021 to be delayed. Other titles include Hogwarts Legacy, which has been delayed to 2022, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, Gran Turismo 7, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, and more.
