Gotham Knights Should Start Making Developer Diaries

Gotham Knights is one of the games that was supposed to get more information this year, but we haven't had as much as we should have. Not that it is easy to make a game, but Gotham Knights follows a rough pattern that gamers have had to deal with lately. There is a problem in that too many companies promise a game far too early, only to reveal nothing for a very long time.

There is a trend among recent games to announce them far too soon, whether it is Elder Scrolls 6, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, or Fable. A lack of information has become something of a wild hunt in itself, but maybe that should evolve with the industry. Bring on the Developer Diaries.

Gotham Knights should introduce Developer Diaries

With gaming becoming more corporate, the genuine personal touch has begun to disappear. The benefit of playing independent games is that you can share your experience with others. Assassin's Creed 2 came out when Ubisoft was a lot smaller than today and really helped it take off.

One thing that Assassin's Creed 2 did very well was having the staff do a few small interviews on what it is like to develop the game. The original was compared with the sequel, as were the challenges it faced. In the days before Forums were just Reddit, theirs was hugely popular with talking about what was discussed on Ubisoft's Forums.

Since Gotham Knights have nothing to showcase, it would be beneficial to them to go through this process. Make the developers spend a few minutes talking about the current challenges of the game instead of showing new things. We want to know why it's taking so long to mention anything and how the pandemic has hurt studios.

Despite being a prominent developer, WB Games can always learn from what makes smaller developers succeed. Transparency and updates are essential to keep a game in the audience's mind. Gotham Knights lacks information right now, and this could prove fatal in the long run.
