The Russian version of Gotham Knights has reportedly been cancelled
Russian language options will also be removed from other versions of the game
The Russian language version of Gotham Knights has reportedly been cancelled.
According to sources speaking to The Happy Warrior, Warner Bros. has decided to pull the game from sale in Russian territories.
The game, which was due to feature Russian subtitles as well as dubbed Russian voices, will no longer feature this language support, even in other versions of the game.
The Russian version of the Gotham Knights site, which can still be seen on archive.org, now brings up a 404 error when it’s accessed.

If the Russian version has indeed been suspended, this would make Warner Bros the latest games company to pull a title from sale in Russian territories following the ongoing war in Ukraine.
It was announced earlier this month that Gotham Knights will no longer be released for PS4 and Xbox One.
A statement from Warner Bros. read: “Please note, 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.”
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.
It was initially planned for release last year before being delayed to provide “more time to deliver the best possible experience for players”.
Gotham Knights can be played in co-op, and despite an update to the PSN page for the game suggesting it could support four players, it appears to be two-player only for now.
Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl and Red Hood can all be selected, but it’s unclear if certain missions require specific characters to be used.
