Batman: Court of the Owls game Rumored to Be Revealed Soon

WB Montréal could finally be revealing Batman: Court of the Owls game this week at Summer Game Fest.

Rumor mill for a new Batman game has been running for some time since December 2018 and even Batman: Arkham Origins developer WB Games Montréal started teasing on annual Batman Day 2019, adding further fuel to flame.

According to an early report, a reveal was all set for E3 2020 event which was cancelled due to Coronavirus outbreak and now an alleged leak on Reddit by user BloomMilk claims for an upcoming announcement of new Batman game.

This leak apparently originated from 4chan imageboard and therefore, should be taken with a grain of salt. This leaker claims that WB Montréal will be revealing their long-awaited Batman game at Summer Game Fest event on May 12, 2020.

When a Twitter user asked video game industry influencer Geoff Keighley about possibility of a Batman game reveal event recently, he simply advises to manage expectations without directly confirming or denying anything at all.

Keighley being coy about what to expect from Summer Game Fest, assures that the game will be "cool and fun".

Latest source of leak also claims that there will be general story reboot without "Arkham" in title, yet character looks and gameplay mechanics are to remain similar, which sounds a lot like previous report of Batman: Arkham series reboot.

Players will be exploring to a massive open-world Gotham City, exclusively on next-gen console systems and PC. Renowned voice actor Mark Hamill will not be reprising his iconic role as The Joker, which is a huge let down for series fans.

Since there are no way to verify credibility for any of these sources, players can simply wait for Geoff Keighley to officially unveil highly anticipated reboot of acclaimed Arkham series at Summer Game Fest showcase on this Tuesday.

WB Games Montréal teased working on a Batman game set within Arkhamverse and is loosely based on 2011 DC Comics storyline Batman: Court of Owls several times already, showing logos of various criminal factions of Gotham.
