Batman: The Dark Knight was an action-stealth game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 developed by Pandemic Studios from September 2006 until its cancellation in October 2008. It would have been the first open world video game to feature the DC Comicssuperhero Batman and was based on Christopher Nolan's film The Dark Knight. In Batman: The Dark Knight, the player controlled Batman, who could freely explore Gotham City, drive vehicles, and perform missions. Pandemic was given access to the film's script and other materials, and the cast was to reprise their roles for the game.

Why it was cancelledEdit

  1. Development was stalled when Pandemic's staff discovered the underlying technology desired to create the game was incompatible with most assets.
  2. Publisher Electronic Arts (EA) chose to cancel the game when it could not reach its intended December 2008 deadline.
