news culture Comic-Con: Batman is dead and will remain so in Gotham Knights!
Presented as the real starting point of the game Gotham Knights, the death of Batman leaves you indifferent? No doubt you are one of those many players jaded by the serial resurrections of fictional characters… Believe it or not, this time, Bruce Wayne will not rise from the dead!
Batman dead and buried!
The action game Gotham Knights, expected for the October 25 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series, is the subject of multiple hallway noises at San Diego Comic-Con. After unveiling the trailer dedicated to the character of Batgirl, the Warner Bros Games team responded to several fans who were worried about whether Batman would indeed remain dead throughout the game or if it was necessary to expect a twist from the game’s writers. Patrick Redding, the creative director of Gotham Knights, replied that yes, Batman loses his life in the first ten minutes of the game and that he remains throughout the duration of the story..
The conspiracy theory
Admittedly, when the game was announced, we weren’t the last to think that Gotham Knights would find some way to bring Bruce Wayne back to life, one way or another. The narrative threads explaining how Warner could have resuscitated Batman are numerous and we had relayed to you multiple theories on this subject. We must therefore make up our minds: Batman will only be visible during the first ten minutes of Gotham Knights and will leave his disciples a posthumous message to encourage them to take over.
Other notable absentees?
It may be noted in passing that creative director Patrick Redding hasn’t denied (or confirmed!) Harley Quinn in Gotham Knights, despite claiming the Joker won’t be in the game at all. As for the character of the mystery man, Edward Nigma, his presence also raises a huge question mark. In any case, this is the image that creative director Patrick Redding chose not to comment on the role that this antagonist could possibly play in the scenario of Gotham Knights.
Has the Warner Bros Games team already said too much? Or not enough? The thing is, fans might be even more curious to get their hands on this title to find out if it’s up to the challenge it presents.
