Gotham Knights Won't Have Crossplay or Local Multiplayer

Gotham Knights won't offer crossplay or local co-op, WB Games has revealed in an updated FAQ.

We got our first extensive look at Gotham Knights gameplay earlier this week, showing off multiplayer co-op between two members of the Batman family, Nightwing and Red Hood. However, if you were hoping to jump online on your PlayStation with a friend on Xbox, that unfortunately won't be an option, with crossplay support “not planned at this time”.

Maybe you can invite your Xbox-loving friend round to yours then, for a cheeky Gotham Knights session in person? Once again, unfortunately not, as WB Games states that co-op “can only be played with online with an internet connection”. Who else misses the days of split-screen multiplayer, aye?

Combined with the cancellation of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game, this perhaps hasn't been the best week for Gotham Knights news, although we're still optimistic that the game will offer some fun Arkham-style shenanigans when it launches later this year.

Gotham Knights is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on 25th October 2022.

  • DOA
  • It's gonna be trash regardless
  • My excitement for this game continues to get deflated with each news story about it. How the fuck do you make a co-op focused game and decide both that there will be no cross play and no split screen options for said co-op?
  • looking more and more like a black friday half priced buy already
  • No local co-op is really a missed opportunity.
