It seems Batman: Arkham Origins developer WB Games Montreal is teasing his new game. The studio tweeted today, September 22, for the first time in more than four years, with what appears to be a cryptic teaser for a new project.
The tweet celebrates the 80th anniversary of Batman's first comic book appearance back in 1939 with a video showing the Bat-Signal projected onto a building. But there's more to it. The video also includes flashes, at: 03 and: 21, of mysterious symbols that you can see below.
People speculate that at least one of the symbols refers to the secret society, Owls Court, found in the Batman universe. In an exciting way, a developer of WB Games Montreal in November 201
More evidence of the Court of Owls connection came from Batman cartoonist Scott Snyder. He tweeted, and then deleted, a post specifically mentioning Owls Court. He used the hashtag #bewarethecourtofowls in his since deleted post. You can see a screenshot of his tweet below.
WB Games Montreal has many open positions published on its job site, one of which mentions that the studio is working on a "AAA-announced game." The studio is massive, as it currently employs more than 300 employees and continues to staff.
In 2016, Kotaku reported that WB Games Montreal canceled a Suicide Squad game and shifted its focus to a new Batman game with Damian Wayne. This may be the new title that WB Games Montreal is teasing, as Damian Wayne was featured in the 2012 comedy "Night of Owls" which focuses on Batman's fight against Owls Court. However, nothing is confirmed.
In 2018, WB Games Montreal senior designer Osama Dorias said on the Humans of Gaming podcast that the studio was working on a "couple project" linked to the DC universe. One of those games is a "main console game, open world, DC universe," Dorias said.
At the same time, Batman: Arkham Knight studio Rocksteady is also working on a new project, although it has not been announced.
People speculate that an upcoming Batman game reveal could happen at the PlayStation State of Play event this week, but nothing at all has given it any confidence.
