May 9, 2022: Warner Bros confirms Gotham Knights only has two-player co-op, but doesn’t rule out extra modes – and a new reveal is coming tomorrow.
PlayStation may have leaked the reveal of Gotham Knights co-op expanding to feature four players at once, similar to its fellow DC superhero game Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Warner Bros confirms to PCGamesN that campaign co-op is still just two-player as announced previously, but doesn’t rule out the possibility of a new multiplayer game mode for four players – and a new Gotham Knights gameplay reveal is coming tomorrow.
Gotham Knights was always a co-op game but was announced as only having support for two players at once – despite including four playable characters and Rocksteady’s similar Suicide Squad featuring four-player co-op. The game was originally announced for 2021 but was pushed back to 2022, and won’t now release until October.
It’s possible developer Warner Bros Montreal used this extra time to add support for four-player co-op. According to the recently updated Gotham Knights’ PSN store page (thanks, SuspiciousTension19), the game offers support for up to “4 network players” at once. However, the description still states that Gotham Knights can be experienced “in solo-play or with one other hero”. If both are accurate, then WB Montreal could be adding a separate mode with four-player support outside the main open-world game.
PCGamesN got in touch with Warner Bros Games brand manager Devon Newberry over Twitter, who confirmed that Gotham Knights will “have two-player campaign co-op, as announced previously”. However, they did not rule out the possibility of a four-player mode separate from the main campaign.
To complicate matters, today the official Gotham Knights Twitter account posted that the game would get a reveal of the powers for Nightwing and Red Hood tomorrow – showing a picture that features four characters.

Gotham Knights also appears in a recent trailer for Summer Game Fest, so it’s possible that the game may get some new details at the event next month, such as the reveal of a four-player mode. We’ll just have to wait to find out for now.
Elsewhere in DC Comics news, Suicide Squad has a release window of Spring 2023, Super Smash Warner Bros game MultiVersus has had several leaks, and someone made an Unreal 5 Superman game. Hopefully, we’ll get a real one of those soon.
