Is Gotham Knights a sequel to the Arkham games?

gotham knightsan open world action game Batman: Arkham Origins developer WB Games Montreal, it begins with the death of Batman. The Dark Knight fights Ra’s al Ghul in the bat cave during the game’s opening cutscene. The confrontation ends with the deaths of both characters as Wayne Manor collapses around them.

Surely most players who are even considering picking up gotham knights and guiding the Batfamily (Robin, Red Hood, Batgirl and Nightwing) through the aftermath of that confrontation ask themselves the same question: Is this the same Batman from the previous Arkham games? Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, Arkham OriginsY Arkham Knight?

The answer is simple: No, it is not. gotham knights takes place in its own continuity that is completely separate from the Arkham games. The Batman who dies in the opening cutscene is a different Batman, and every other character in this game that you’ve previously encountered in an Arkham game is also a different version of that character, including the four main heroes.

As for why that’s the case, the closest thing there is to an answer comes from WB Games Montreal Creative Director Patrick Redding, who spoke about the decision on the game’s official Discord server (as seen by The Direct). :

“We wanted to be able to interpret and adapt the characters, both the heroes and their rogues gallery, in new ways that would support a new player experience and progression. We wanted to be able to write the story of these characters with an original story without being tied to a particular continuity or feature set.”

Like all Batman and Batman-adjacent stories, gotham knights shares many basic building blocks with other well-known tales. Although not in the same timeline or universe as the Arkham games, the characters will make references to familiar events. For example, Harley Quinn mentions doing some work for the government; clearly, the Suicide Squad exists within this version of the universe.
