Gotham Knights developer Warner Bros Montreal is adamant Batman won't be part of the game in any way beyond his death at the very beginning. Speaking in a Q&A panel at San Diego Comic-Con, creative director Patrick Redding stated Batman is "really dead" and hinted at appearances from other famous faces of the Gotham world.
In the lead-up to the game's PS5 launch on 25th October 2022, it has been presumed Gotham Knights would pull a Marvel's Avengers and have the famous vigilante reappear at the end of the campaign alive and well. Warner Bros Montreal says that's very much not the case.
As for villains, it's been confirmed Joker won't make the cut, but his accomplice Harley Quinn might. "I will not confirm or deny whether Harley is [in the game]," said Redding. Furthermore, "exactly one" Riddler question mark will be hidden somewhere in Gotham City. The comments come as the developer revealed a brand new trailer focusing on Batgirl.
Still don’t believe him
Just like the arkham Knight wasn't exactly who everyone knew already.
Willing to bet money that Bruce is the talon, and they are right in saying that "batman" won't appear.
Nope. Not buying it.
I don't believe it either. Mind you Batman can be alive as long as someone else wants to don the cape.
Did he mean Bruce Wayne is really dead? I can believe that a bit more.
So, the two most liked characters of Gotham are not going to be in the game? Very smart move.
Yeah, not once do I believe him.
I saw the wink he gaved!
I think we will be seeing Batman and Joker. Perhaps not part of the main game but as a stand-alone expansion and in the same way of Justice League. Move over Superman, the world needs a Batman and Joker
Yep, and the Arkham Knight isn't Jason Todd
Would like to see something different than Riddler Trophies if he really is in the game.
@liamcroft as someone who was planning to start playing marvel's avengers in the coming days, a spoiler warning would helped.
I guess I'll just wait for the next Batman game then
Remember when Joker wasn't going to be in Arkham Knight and the story ends up being pretty much all about 😄
I doubt it, tbh.
I don't mind not seeing Joker in this one.
@RBMango same, I'm not gonna buy the game either.
@AJ1 Agreed, that was a very poor show.
Yeah right.that is not true.batman is alive.word up son
Whether it’s true or not, OF COURSE they’re going to say that.
He’s not dead he just snubbed those 4 clowns
Last game they said Jason Todd wasn't the Arkham Knight.
Fibbers, no way will they keep Bruce/Batman dead forever.
