A new Gotham Knights update is set for May 10

Gotham Knights

Waking up to the Bat-Signal

After a little bit of info on Gotham Knights seemingly leaked out, it looks like a more official update is on the way. A new Gotham Knights update is airing tomorrow, May 10.

The update will go live at 6 a.m. PT, 9 a.m. ET. Since there’s no stream link, it doesn’t seem like it will be a live showcase.

Nightwing and Red Hood look to be taking center stage for this update though.

As for what’s in store, we might have seen a hint of it already. A recent update to the PlayStation Store listing for Gotham Knights suggests it might have four-player co-op now. Though originally premiered as a two-player game with four character options, this four-player could see the whole Bat Family hit the streets of Gotham together. If it’s real, that is.

Knight, knight

It’s been a little while since we last got an update on WB Montreal’s new Bat game. It’s set in a universe where Bruce Wayne, the Batman, is apparently dead. And now the extended Bat Family—Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, and Red Hood—have to contend with the mysterious Court of Owls.

It’s taking up the Bat mantle, as Rocksteady has been working on a different DC universe game in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Rocksteady’s project isn’t due out until spring 2023 at this point. Gotham Knights, meanwhile, is targeting the fitting month of Halloween. WB Montreal confirmed not too long ago that Gotham Knights will launch on Oct. 25, 2022.

It’s not the only game set for this fall, though. The release schedule has gradually started to fill up, with Splatoon 3 headed for September and Square Enix isekai Forspoken also picking a date in October. And of course, Starfield is set to lift off in November. With the Summer Game Fest just around the corner, no doubt we’ll start to see the fall get a little more packed. We’ll see tomorrow what Gotham Knights has in store for October.
