Gotham Knights developers explain why they decided to kill Batman


Last weekend, the DC Fandome festival took place, in which WB Games Montreal presented Gotham Knights, a new superhero action movie. In it, users will have to defend Gotham as Robin, Nightwing, Red Hood and Batgirl, since Batman died. About why the Dark Knight, beloved by millions, they decided to retire, the developers told in a recent interview with IGN.

Speaking to reporters, Gotham Knights creative director Patrick Redding said: “We wanted to deprive [пользователей] confidence and a sense of security. So we had the option to take Gotham, where Bruce acted as Batman for 15 years – with all the history and network of allies – and remove [героя] from the stage. This will make the players wonder, “What do I do and how do I protect Gotham?”

It is currently unknown whether the death of Batman in Gotham Knights will be final. Perhaps the superhero was only faking death, trying to knock enemies off the trail. However, the events of the game are not set in the Batman: Arkham universe, so developers have creative freedom in creating the plot.

Gotham Knights will arrive in 2021 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series X. The exact date has yet to be announced.
