Warner Bros. Montreal has announced it’s delaying Gotham Knights, its upcoming Bat Family cooperative beat-em-up.
The announcement came through a post on the game’s social channels, saying the studio is pushing Gotham Knights into next year.
The full statement reads as follows:
“Gotham Knights will now launch worldwide in 2022.
We are giving the game more time to deliver the best possible experience for players. Thank you to our amazing fans for your tremendous support of Gotham Knights. We look forward to showcasing more of the game in the coming months.”

After multiple teases, Gotham Knights was unveiled back in August alongside Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad game. It stars Batman’s various wards as playable characters taking part in cooperative missions. Including Robin, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Batgirl. While it’s being developed by WB Montreal, which developed Batman: Arkham Origins, it’s not set in the same continuity as the Arkham games.

With this delay, both of DC’s big cooperative action games are set for 2022, as Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is also not making its way to market this year. So it might be a light year for DC-related video games. There’s been hints that a new installment in the Injustice fighting game series might be in the works, or at the very least comics set in its alternate universe.
In the meantime, Zack Snyder’s Justice League is streaming on HBO Now. So if you want to spend four hours watching a slightly better version of a still not great film. There’s that. Oh, and the entire comic universe is getting a reboot with Infinite Frontier. The first issue is available now.
