As for the iconic Batman characters we see in Gotham Knights, there is still very little that the developer WB Games Montreal has shown us. The main roles include Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl and Red Hood, but when it comes to villains, we have not seen too many. That said, the developers behind the game may have just given us a hint about an iconic villain who may appear in the latest game.
On the official Gotham Knights Twitter account recently, a new photo was shared to wish potential players a happy holiday. While this may have just seemed like a nice gesture on the part of the dev team, the image that was shown may contain some potential hints as to what fans can expect from Gotham Knights. While a potential release date may be teased in this photo, it also mentions a place that is often associated with the character Poison Ivy.

For those unaware, Robinson Park is an iconic place in Gotham that has previously been home to Poison Ivy. Especially in No man’s land comic book series, Poison Ivy essentially ended up taking over the site as its own. The image that WB Games Montreal shared specifically mentions Robinson Park, which then of course leads us to believe that Poison Ivy may in one way or another be involved in the game’s history.
Obviously this can be a bit of a reach, so take this information with a grain of salt. That said, Poison Ivy does Gotham Knights would not be too shocking. The formidable Batman enemy has already appeared in a number of other video games over the years, including Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham Knight, and Injustice 2.
As for the villains we know will make an appearance, WB Games Montreal has already teased Court of Owls in the debut trailer for Gotham Knights. A subsequent game demo also revealed that Mr. Freeze is also involved. Outside this group, however, no other villains have been shown in the project.
Fortunately, it would not be long before we start hearing more about Gotham Knights as the release of the game comes in the new year. For now, Gotham Knights is scheduled to launch on an indefinite date in 2021 and will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and PC.
