A writer at WB Games Montreal, the team working with the Gotham Knights, said that the open-world action RPG will have a “very fresh, unique attitude” to the well-known Batman game structure.
In a brief interview with the Las Vegas Review Journal, narrative designer and writer Mitch Dyer said that the Gotham Knights’ focus on characters other than Batman makes the game more accessible. In turn, this should give the game an engaging feel that is “fresh” and “unique”.
“Changing the focus to be about these characters in the aftermath of this central death that is important to them all, the framework of this story is unique,”
Dyer, who previously worked in EA Motive Studio to write the story for his dogfighting simulator Star Wars: Squadrons, also briefly touched on what attracted him to the Gotham Knights. It all boils down to the ability to play four other prominent Batman characters.
“I was attracted to the project because I was a fan of it [when it was announced at DC FanDome in August 2020], “Sa Dyer.” The idea of playing four different characters in an open world in a setting where Bruce Wayne is dead is extremely compelling to me. “
While the Gotham Knights do not have a final release date yet, the game is scheduled to drop this year for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S.
In other WB Games news, a note about a job listing at publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment suggests that they plan to focus their upcoming games on live services in some capacity.
