Gotham Knights are the long-awaited action title from WB Games Montréal. Now that its release is drawing ever nearer, players are finally getting more information on the game. However, for some players, the news may be all bad, as the studio has announced the game is no longer being developed for PS4 and Xbox One consoles.
The news comes after a gameplay demo for Red Hood, and Nightwing was released on the game's official YouTube channel. At the end of this demo, eagle-eyed fans could spot that the previous generation of consoles was not listed in the supported platforms. This was then confirmed later in a blog post on WB Games Montréal's website.
The developers have stated that to provide the best gameplay experience, the game would be developed solely for current-gen consoles and PC. While it is unfortunate for PS4 and Xbox One players, it is very true that developing a game for older consoles essentially holds it back. It will definitely be interesting to see what sort of advancements can be made both mechanically and graphically now that they are not barred by older technology.
This is the nature of new consoles and ever-evolving technology. Gotham Knights may be one of the first games to stop development for PS4 and Xbox One, but more are sure to follow in the very near future.
