Gotham Knights Won’t Release on PS4, Xbox One


Pre-orders are now available for three editions of Gotham Knights that confirm its next-gen console exclusivity on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.

Gotham Knights‘ release date is a balm for fans who are excited about another game set in the DC universe. Gotham Knights is its own IP with a new continuity, and its emphasis on Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin and Red Hood as its playable protagonists sets it even further apart from the existing franchises.

Today’s walkthrough from WB Games Montreal showed the gameplay of its two remaining protagonists, Nightwing and Red Hood, and detailed a lot of information about its capabilities as an action RPG. But as another interesting point of interest, Gotham Knights also announced that pre-orders are now available, as well as what each edition comes with.

Gotham Knights may finally be ready for concrete marketing now, as it was revealed today that three editions are available for pre-order: a Standard Edition, a Deluxe Edition, and a Collector’s Edition. In a recent list from Taiwan, it was suggested that Gotham Knights would be omitting its next-gen edits, despite the game’s marketing to the contrary. This hasn’t been confirmed so far, and it’s official following today’s pre-order announcement that Gotham Knights will be available exclusively on next-gen consoles, with PS4 and Xbox One console editions no longer an option.


This can be upsetting for fans who haven’t been able to acquire a next-gen console. However, this likely means that the final product will be in the best possible shape when Gotham Knights meets its new release date and we hope it looks and plays as well as possible exclusively on next-gen consoles.

In addition to the basic game, Gotham KnightsThe Deluxe Edition includes a DLC called the Visionary Pack, which reportedly contains equipment, cosmetics, and exclusive character skins inspired by the Batman beyond animated series that are dubbed “Beyond Suitstyle”. Gotham Knights‘ Collector’s Edition contains the items from the Deluxe Edition, as well as an augmented reality collectible brooch, a 16-page media book, Gotham Knights‘ Gotham City map and a four-character statue diorama.


Additionally, as a general pre-order bonus, players have access to a 233 Kustom Batcycle skin that pays homage to his first appearance in DC’s Detective Comics #233. Because every character has access to the Batcycle in Gotham Knightsit will likely be a cosmetic that players can apply to any character’s bike. Gotham Knights may still choose to share more ahead of launch, but these three editions are a welcome surprise for fans who also got to see Nightwing and Red Hood’s gameplay for the first time in today’s presentation.

Gotham Knights is scheduled to be released on October 25, 2022 for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
