In a series of tweets following the publication of the company’s quarterly financial results this week, Warner Media CEO Jason Kilar said it plans to deliver “a full slate of highly anticipated games” this year, accompanied by images of Gotham Knights and Hogwarts Legacy.
Gotham Knights is being developed by WB Games Montreal and led by creative director Patrick Redding, who previously directed Splinter Cell titles Conviction and Blacklist.

Playable either solo or in two-player co-op, it sees players assume the role of Nightwing, Robin, Red Hood or Batgirl following the death of Bruce Wayne.
Gameplay takes place in a “dynamic and interactive” open-world Gotham City where players take on villains such as Mr. Freeze using a variety of abilities, weapons, and unique combat moves, according to Warner.
Initially planned for release last year, Gotham Knights was delayed to 2022 to provide “more time to deliver the best possible experience for players”.
Following claims that Hogwarts Legacy’s release could be delayed to 2023, an official update released earlier this month stated that the game is on track to arrive in 2022.
Developed by Avalanche Software (Disney Infinity), Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books.
Like Gotham Knights, Hogwarts Legacy was also originally scheduled to be released in 2021 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. But around this time last year, Warner delayed the game’s release window to 2022.
