In case you’re in search of the continuation of the story established in Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham Metropolis, and Arkham Knight, it isn’t within the upcoming WB Montreal sport starring the Bat-family that extra carefully resembles these titles. As we realized at DC FanDome, it is Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League that could be a continuation of the Arkhamverse.
As revealed throughout the Suicide Squad sport’s panel, Kill the Justice League continues the narrative established within the earlier Rocksteady Arkham video games. A number of the narrative threads established in that trilogy can be picked up right here, though specifics weren’t shared. We do know the sport tells an authentic story the place they’re apparently tasked with taking down the Justice League, together with Superman.
Alternatively, Gotham Knights won’t be–WB Video games Montreal advised ComicBook, “Gotham Knights is an authentic story set in DC’s Batman Universe and never related to the Arkham sequence.”
This information may come as considerably of a shock, on condition that Kill the Justice League seems to have a extra lighthearted tone of the 2 video games. However in a method, it is sensible: Kill the Justice League is the brand new sport from Rocksteady, whereas Gotham Knights comes from WB Video games Montreal. The latter studio did develop Batman: Arkham Origins, however that is not thought-about a part of the core trilogy of Arkham video games.
Sadly, this implies it’s going to be some time but earlier than the Arkham story is continued–Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League can be launched in 2022 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Collection X. Gotham Knights, then again, will launch in 2021 for PC, PS4, Xbox Collection X, PS4, and Xbox One.
