Gotham Knights might not release on last-gen consoles as the game has only been rated for PlayStation 5 & Xbox Series X in Taiwan.
After a surprising delay, Gotham Knights is slated to release this year and fans are eagerly waiting for its arrival. However, a recent development might get some fans disappointed.
According to the official Taiwan game rating website, Gotham Knights has only been rated for the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S. Now, this is quite some disappointing news for fans, as it was confirmed at launch that the game will be released on last-gen consoles as well. However, considering the fact that the game has not been rated for last-gen consoles, it could be possible that we might actually not see the games making their way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One/ Xbox One S.
While this might seem like quite a bummer for fans, it isn’t that big of a surprise if the last-gen versions are ditched. The game was slated to release in 2021 itself, but due to some performance issues, it was delayed to this October of this year. With the technical prowess showcased, it could be very much possible that the developers were not able to optimize the game for last-gen consoles.
It’ll be a couple of years since the launch of new consoles by the time Gotham Knights releases, so we might be seeing other third-party titles following suit very soon as well. When it comes to the PlayStation exclusives, God of War Ragnarok could be the last exclusive to release on the PlayStation 4. All of the exclusives announced thereafter, including Wolverine and Marvel Spider-Man 2 are slated to release only for the PlayStation 5. Whether Gotham Knights releases on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One remains to be seen. There is not a long way to go for the release of the title, so we should be getting more information soon enough.
