DC Comics reveal two Batman games

DC Comics is known for iconic comic books. If you know Superman, you know who DC Comics is. If you know Batman, then you know who DC Comics is. DC Comics has a universe of super heroes, much like Marvel has their Avengers. It’s been rumored for a while now, that Warner Bros. Games would be readying two games in the DC Comics universe for a while now. All that came to a head, when Rocksteady teased their next game via Twitter, they also revealed the name of the game: “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.” Now, if you don’t know what the Justice League is; it’s basically DC Comics’ answer to Marvel’s Avengers (and vice versa.) Suicide Squad is Harley Quinn’s little …group. WB Games then announced their own 24-hour livestream, which would take place today (August 22, 2020), and is still going on as we speak. The first game they revealed was “Gotham Knights.” It’s being developed by WB Games Montreal, the same team behind Batman: Arkham Origins. In Gotham Knights, you can choose from – I think – 4 characters: Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin. Gotham Knights is slated for a 2021 release…

Gotham Knights does not take place in Rocksteady’s Arkham series. But, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League does. In fact, it takes place after the events of the Arkham Asylum trilogy.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is slated to be released in 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
