The upcoming game set in Gotham City is set to launch later this year, but is Gotham Knights coming to PS4 and Xbox One?
It’s been a few years since we’ve had a Batman game release. And while Gotham Knights doesn’t have the vigilante himself, it’s set in a Gotham after Batman’s death.
Gotham Knights sees players becoming one of four heroes from Batman’s trusty companion’s list. These include Red Hood, Batgirl, Nightwing, and Robin.
However, many players may be wondering whether Gotham Knights will arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, due to the open-world and possible two-player co-op.
Here’s whether Gotham Knights will release on PS4 and Xbox One later this year.
Gotham Knights Will Be Next-Gen Exclusive – PS5, Xbox Series X, PC
Warner Bros. has confirmed that Gotham Knights will be a next-gen exclusive. This means it’ll only be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series consoles, and PC.
Confirmed via the Frequently Asked Questions page on the Gotham Knights site, the game will be exclusive to the above platforms.
Warner Bros. said this to the question of whether the game will be available on PS4 and Xbox One.
“To provide players with the best possible gameplay experience, the game will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC and will not be available for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One consoles.”
While it’s unclear what lead to this decision exactly, it’s likely to make the experience better for all players in co-op. It also makes development easier, as they don’t need to worry about cross-gen co-op.
It’s a shame that those on last-gen consoles won’t be able to play Gotham Knights. However, those on next-gen will likely get the best experience possible.
