Batman: Court of Owls Game Teased By WB Montréal

Arkham Origins developer WB Montréal officially teases new Batman: Court of Owls game on Twitter.

While celebrating 80th anniversary of Batman making his first appearance on Detective Comics #27 in May 1939 and annual Batman Day 2019, developer WB Games Montréal teased an upcoming new Batman game yesterday.

Today, an official clip of all those cryptic logos teased by Arkham Origins developer is posted on their Twitter handle that clearly hints of an announcement coming soon, maybe in Sony's latest State of Play episode on September 24.

Rumors were riling up from last year about a new Batman game by WB Montréal that is set in Arkham Asylum universe and will adapt the "Court of Owls" storyline of 2011 from The New 52 wave of DC Comics as its primary plotline.

These rumors were strengthened by an image shared on Twitter by studio assistant producer that had an owl emblem on it. A leaked and now-deleted placeholder listing for an upcoming WB Games title was even spotted on Amazon lately.

These mysterious symbols obviously hints at next possible direction for next Batman games and one of them can be incorporated with Court of Owls, one with Ra's al Ghul or his League of Assassins and the rest to other different organizations.

It could also be an implication that four fractions are after The Dark Knight to end his reign of vigilantism on Gotham or they all belong to a same group that will slowly evolve over time and become something bigger than they were earlier.

Fans were asking for a follow-up title for long after Rocksteady Studios have wrapped up Arkham trilogy in 2015 with Batman: Arkham Knight. "Court of Owls" saga can very much become that successor series they have been wanting.

Whatever WB Games Montréal has been trying to tell us through cryptic messaging will probably come to an end very soon and will reveal what gritty interpretation of Batman they are after this time in their latest Court of Owls game.

Batman: Court of Owls Game May be Revealed Soon

Recent tease from WB Games Montréal on Batman Day may be hinting at upcoming Batman: Court of Owls game.

For some time, there have been some rumors of developer WB Games Montréal secretly working on a new Batman game that is set on acclaimed New 52 storyline titled "Court of Owls", published in 2011 from DC Comics.

Now this tease actually makes sense and also aligns with a Tweet from a year ago by assistant producer of WB Montréal. She posted a photo wearing a black T-shirt with an owl emblem on its back that matches to one of the glitchy images.

As many comic-book fans know already, writer Scott Snyder (Death of the Family, Night of the Owls) and artist Greg Capullo (Haunt, Spawn) has worked on "Court of Owls" story arc in 2011, which is one of the best Batman stories of modern times.

Hiding beneath the shadows, the Court has been operating in Gotham City for centuries that use a group of lethal assassins under their employ called The Talons to eradicate anyone who becomes a threat to their organization.

Snyder has Retweeted the video posted by WB Games earlier with a #bewarethecourtofowls hashtag to bolster all speculation and then quickly removed it, only to seemingly confirm of a new Batman game featuring Court of Owls.

Batman Day bears more significance than ever before this year because it was 80th anniversary of The Dark Knight making his first appearance on Detective Comics #27 back in May 1939 only to become a comic-book legend in coming years.

Epic Games may even attempt to sneak in some clue for where upcoming Season 11 is headed to. So, wear the iconic cape and cowl to go out saving Gotham City riding a Bat-glider before Fortnite X Batman limited time crossover ends.

Batman: Court of Owls Game Teased

WB Games Montréal developers are teasing of a possible "Batman: Court of Owls" game being in development.

Some recent evidence suggests that developer WB Games Montréal is currently working on a new Batman game and it is based on the "Court of Owls" storyline. Court of Owls is a new group of villains that was introduced in The New 52 wave of DC Comics in 2011.

Long before, it was a secret organization working in shadows and had some of the most powerful people of Gotham City in their pocket, most of them as its member. Interesting fact is that, they have old ties of history to the Wayne Family as well.

The court is a secret society that employs a group of undead assassins wearing owl masks called Talons to do their dirty work and is responsible for some of the most violent crimes in the city. They became a recurring enemy for The Dark Knight after targeting Bruce Wayne.

Batman was pitted against one of the Talons who severely beat him and tortured to the point where he begged to be killed but then found a way out. When the antagonism between them reaches its peak, they even launched an attack on Wayne Manor.

Based on the recent Tweets from assistant producer of WB Montreal, the studio is currently working on a new title and everyone on board is very excited. She posted a photo of her wearing a black T-shirt with an owl emblem on its back.

The emblem heavily resembles to the one that was used in the Court of Owls comic books and this could be a potential hint to the next Arkham series of games. Perhaps the game will serve as a prequel to the Arkham series and even start a new trilogy as well.

Even though the series is closely associated with Rocksteady Studios, the third game of the series, Batman: Arkham Origins was developed by WB Montreal. So, it would not be a huge tectonic shift of things if the new title goes to WB.

However, you should not have high hopes for any surprise announcement from the studio this week at The Game Awards 2018 and creative director Patrick Redding has already confirmed about that in one of his recent Tweet.

To fuel the speculation a bit more, comic-book writer and the creator of "Court of Owls", Scott Snyder (Death of the Family, Night of the Owls) has recently Retweeted an IGN article speculating over the possibility of the new game.

Since we are not getting a peak at what they are cooking this week at TGA, fans of the Caped Crusader will have to wait a little longer to see him returning into action. Right now, an official announcement can set all records straight for all parties.
