Does Gotham Knights Take Place in the Arkhamverse?

To put it simply, no, Gotham Knights does not take place on Arkhamverse. Instead being featured, in a way similar to Marvel’s Spider-Man, in its own universe. With that said, although Gotham Knights is not connected to the Arkahmverse in any shape or form, the game does features a few nods to the acclaimed Arkham series, as well as its own take on some of its best mechanics, thus allowing fans of the series to feel at home.

Is a New Arkham Game in Development?

Fortunately to the fans of the franchise, Rocksteady Studios’ upcoming action title Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be featured in the same universe as the series.

The game is set to take place sometime after the event’s featured on the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham Knight and will follow Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark as they must do the impossible, head to Metropolis and, as the title says, kill the world’s biggest superheroes. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set to be released in 2023.
