Everyone may be busy playing the six free Batman games just released on the Epic Games Store, or possibly exploring Gotham City in Fortnite, but there’s yet more Batman gaming news for you this week. Over the past few days, Warner Bros. Montreal – the studio behind Batman: Arkham Oranges – has spent the past few days hinting at a brand new Batman game which looks like it’s based on a mysterious organisation called the Court of Owls. Sounds like a hoot.
Last weekend, in its first post since 2015, the Warner Bros. Twitter account posted this video of four symbols flashing in front of the Bat-Signal. The symbols were posted again yesterday, this time in a much clearer format, along with the words “Capture the Knight”. There’s also some kind of night/knight pun going on in the French bit.
It’s all rather mysterious, but a couple of clues point towards this title being focused on a sinister organisation called the Court of Owls. Last year, a Warner Bros. Montreal producer tweeted a photo of a T-shirt with an owl-like logo, while Batman writer Scott Snyder recently wrote in a (now-deleted) tweet: “Wait for it… #bewarethecourtofowls” (thanks, GamesRadar).
