Warner Bros' latest AAA game will not feature microtransactions, possibly signalling a move away from monetization.

Gotham Knights shockingly won't have microtransactions 75

Gotham Knights, the new Batman game that doesn't feature Batman at all, will not have microtransactions. WB Montreal recently confirmed the news on Twitter with a simple denial of the popular billion-dollar business model.

On paper this makes sense. Gotham Knights isn't a live game and only features two-player co-op. That being said, WB Games has infused microtransactions in other singleplayer-only games like Shadow of War...although the publisher did remove mTX after launch. Other games like Mortal Kombat also featured in-game purchases.

On the other hand, Gotham Knights is prime territory for microtransactions. Each of the main characters--Nightwing, Red Hood, Batgirl, and Robin--all have different armor transmogrifications and variants that can be used and upgraded in the game. There's also a case for allowing gamers to buy crafting materials to boost or upgrade their gear, Assassin's Creed-style.

Gotham Knights will release on October 25, 2022 on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
