It’s been confirmed by WB Montreal that the recently-revealed Gotham Knights isn’t actually a continuation of the Batman Arkham games.
Speaking with ComicBook, the studio behind the upcoming game explained that though Gotham Knights will kick off at a similar point to where the Arkham games concluded, it’s not actually affiliated with the beloved franchise.
The team told the publication: “Gotham Knights is an original story set in DC’s Batman Universe and not connected to the Arkham series.”
I guess that explains the game’s new look then!
Revealed during the DC Fandome event, Gotham Knights has impressed fans of Batman and the gang with its change of style and intriguing storyline.
The game’s description states: “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.
“Gotham Knights is a brand-new open world, third-person action RPG featuring the Batman Family as players step into the roles of Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin, a new guard of trained DC Super Heroes who must rise up as the protectors of Gotham City in the wake of Batman’s death. An expansive, criminal underworld has swept through the streets of Gotham, and it is now up to these new heroes to protect the city, bring hope to its citizens, discipline to its cops and fear to its criminals. Players must save Gotham from descent into chaos and reinvent themselves into their own version of the Dark Knight.”
