UPDATE: The Robert Pattinson skin has been removed from the Epic Games Store version of Batman: Arkham Knight, as Batman Arkham Videos reports. No official reason has been given by Rocksteady Studios at this time.
The suit is based on the appearance of the costume in 2022’s The Batman, which starred Pattinson in the lead role and was directed by Matt Reeves. This new suit joins a wide variety of other live-action Batman designs that are present as skins, including those of Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, and Adam West.
Twitter user @Venturian628 showed off photos of the suit in action, leading to questions as to whether it was a mod or official suit. It’s been confirmed that the skin is available through the Epic Games Store version of the sequel, though there’s currently no word on if it will be available on other consoles.
THIS IS OFFICIAL

When did Batman: Arkham Knight come out?
Batman: Arkham Knight was originally released in 2015 and served as the conclusion to the Arkham series of video games. The plot sees Batman take on some of his deadliest foes — including the Scarecrow, played by John Noble — after the death of the Joker in Arkham City. Multiple DLC packs were made for the game, allowing players to assume the role of characters like Batgirl, Nightwing, and the Red Hood.
