A WB Games Montréal developer has confirmed that Gotham Knights will be locked at 30 FPS on consoles and will not have a performance mode offering.

The announcement was made in the game's Discord channel by Gotham Knights executive producer Fleur "Flaoua" Marty on Friday (H/T Wario64).

"I know many of you are wondering about the availability of a performance mode for Gotham Knights on consoles," Marty said. "Due to the types of features we have in our game, like providing a fully untethered co-op experience in our highly detailed open-world, it's not as straightforward as lowering the resolution and getting a higher FPS. For this reason, our game does not have a performance/quality toggle option and will run at 30FPS on consoles."

Back in May, Warner Bros. Games announced that Gotham Knights will no longer be released on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One in order to "provide players with the best possible gameplay experience."

The full game will be playable either solo or with a friend in two-player online co-op. Cross-play support is not planned at this time.

As initially first announced in 2020, Gotham Knights is publisher Warner Bros. Games
and developer WB Games Montréal's upcoming open-world, third-person action RPG featuring the Batman Family.

In this all-new original story, Batman is dead and an expansive, criminal underworld has swept through the streets of Gotham City. Complete with unique combat and traversal abilities, the crime-stopping has been left to the rest of the "bat family" — Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing and Red Hood.


Gotham Knights is set to release worldwide for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store) on Oct. 21, 2022.
