The future PS5 game Gotham Knights has just been officially announced, and a social media user has already claimed to know its release date. The same Twitter resident has also made interesting comments about a possible PlayStation 5 teardown and a frequently rumored God of War sequel.

The action game Gotham Knights has just been officially revealed, with a fantastic world premiere trailer already attracting hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube within hours of it being posted. The game will be released on the PS5 along with the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X editions. While it has already been mentioned that the game will be arriving in 2021, an infamous Twitter user has offered up an additional tidbit about the title, stating that fans will have to wait until October of next year before finding out if the original Batman is truly dead or not.

The same commenter, IronManPS5 (grab the salt), has already unleashed a tidal wave of PS5-related rumors over the last couple of days, and two of the most recent posts stand out for the amount of detail and subject matter. Firstly, it is claimed that Yasuhiro Ootori, Sony’s engineering director, will carry out a PS5 teardown in Tokyo in November, with a video of the event being posted on the PlayStation blog. It was Ootori who carried out the teardown of the PS4 back in 2013, so there is some substance behind this particular statement.

IronManPS5 has also made a comment about the God of War sequel, which has been a hot topic lately. Last month, the YouTube channel Moore’s Law Is Dead stated that a successor to 2018’s God of War could be launched in 2021. However, this rumor was seemingly and rapidly dismissed by Cory Barlog, the director behind the highly successful PlayStation 4 smash-hit. But you can’t keep Kratos down for long, and now his bald head has popped up in another rumor.

According to this particular God of War post, Cory Barlog will actually be directing the keenly awaited successor and that the God of War sequel and PS5 exclusive will be available in spring…of 2022. It’s quite a claim to make, especially as Barlog has already hinted that Eric Williams might take the helm for a future God of War installment while the former GoW director possibly focuses on a brand-new IP instead.
