New Batman game Gotham Knights will be revealed next weekend confirms Warner

A new Batman game and Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad title will be unveiled next Saturday at the DC FanDome event, as well as maybe Injustice 3.

Warner Bros. has confirmed that a new Batman game will be announced in just a few days from now, as they prepare for their 24-hour long DC FanDome marathon.

The official schedule lists a ‘Warner Bros. Games Montréal Announcement’ as taking place at 6.30pm on Saturday, 22 August.

There’s no more information than that, although recent website domain name registrations suggest that the new game is called Gotham Knights, which also matches with rumours that it features the wider ‘bat family’ of playable characters.

After that, there’s a panel for ‘Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League’ at what is 1am on Sunday morning for the UK.

Not to be confused with the new Suicide Squad film (there’s a panel for that at 10pm), this is the new multiplayer game by Batman: Arkham creators Rocksteady. ‘Kill the Justice League’ was originally assumed to be a tagline but here it seems to be the actual subtitle of the game.

That’s two games confirmed but what’s less clear is whether Injustice 3 is going to be at the event. NetherRealm has, seemingly by accident, said that they are making it, but it seems to be further out than the other two games.

There is a panel called ‘Inside Injustice – Making the Hit Games & Comics’ at 9.45pm but it doesn’t specifically say anything about any announcements. The subject is bound to come up though and at the very least we should get some kind of tease or additional confirmation.

There’s continued confusion as to whether Warner’s video game division is going to be sold off or not, to help reduce parent company AT&T’s more than $150 billion debts.

That certainly seemed to be the intention at first, but a more recently financial report is more ambiguous on the subject. If it does go ahead though EA, Activision, Take-Two, and Microsoft are all thought to be interested.

As a result of both that massive debt and the coronavirus, AT&T has been instituting a series of major cutbacks across all its companies and DC Comics was recently hit with a massive round of layoffs that has seen around a third of its editors lose their jobs.

So, not really the best timing for a fan event, but there you go…
