The last weekend was a blast for DC fans. Among the many announcements for movies, TV shows, and more, WB Games also announced its next game, Gotham Knights. The game is set right after the death of the Dark Knight and now it's up to the Bat-Family, comprising of Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin, and Red Hood, to save Gotham from the Court of Owls.

Even though the game is set after Arkham Knight, it isn't part of the Arkham Universe. The trailer tells a story of how the Bat-Family has to step up to protect Gotham in the absence of Batman. However, WB Games has confirmed that Gotham Knights is set in a different continuity, despite its connection with Arkham Knight's ending.

WB Montreal also made Arkham Origins, and seeing how Batgirl deals with enemies, it seems that she plays quite similarly to Batman from the Arkham series.

To many Arkham fans' surprise, the game that continues after the Arkham series is Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, despite its lack of tangible connections with the Arkham lore. However, Gotham Knights seems to have a lot more connections with the Arkham series. The cinematic trailer for Suicide Squad introduces us to Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang hanging together in Metropolis before Superman appears on the scene, reminding the gang of their mission. Superman also seems to have gone on a murdering spree, which could be the reason why the Suicide Squad is trying to bring him down.

If what's shown in the trailer is taken literally, it seems that players will be flying around Metropolis with jet packs while causing mayhem in broad daylight, instead of taking a stealthy approach in the night.

Gotham Knights is set to release next year and Suicide Squad is scheduled for 2022.

What are your thoughts on both of these games? Will these games be interesting enough given that Batman is entirely missing? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
