Two issues named Gotham Knights are presently set to launch over the approaching 12 months. One is a online game (coming within the latter half of 2022), and one is a TV present (coming early 2023), and each see a bunch rallying collectively to battle the crime in Gotham following Batman’s demise.
Nonetheless, regardless of sharing a reputation, an overarching idea and a reasonably shut launch window, these two don’t have any relation to one another what’s so ever. Huh.
“Message from the Belfry: the #GothamKnights recreation and the upcoming TV present of the identical identify are separate tasks with no connection to 1 one other,” Batman Arkham Oranges developer Warner Bros. Montreal tweeted. “We will not wait so that you can expertise the motion of our Gotham Knights quickly.”
So… I assume that clears that up, though why Warner Bros. thought it was a good suggestion to permit using the Gotham Knights identify for 2 simultaneous tasks is anybody’s guess.
