There’s a lot of rumours going around Rocksteady’s new title however, people are not paying enough attention to WB Montreal who may have just teased their upcoming Batman: Court of Owls game.

Over on Twitter, WB Montreal’s Assistant Producer has been talking about how awesome her job is lately and posted a picture of a t-shirt with a very familiar logo a few days ago. Some pointed out that it was not Batman related but a Harry Potter teaser, however, the logo is extremely similar to the Court of Owls symbol. There’s been a lot of rumours about the next “Arkham” game and this might be the biggest hint as to what it is even if it isn’t being made by Rocksteady.
For those unfamiliar with The Court of Owls, it’s a somewhat recent but critically acclaimed storyline that is part of Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion’s new 52 run. The story focuses on a secret society known as The Court of Owls who have secretly been in Gotham City since the colonial times and are now out to get Batman and Bruce Wayne. It is one of the best new additions to the Batman mythology and is a must-read for every Batman Fan so I’m not going to spoil more.
WB Games Montreal previously made Batman: Arkham Origins which was quite a good game and a very good prequel to the series which had its fair share of bugs at launch but has since been ironed out and is a lot of Arkham series fans’ favourite out of the four titles.
… We’re not doing the glamorous part of the job just yet. We’re headed down to meet with our WB partners and showcase the team’s hard work and share our excitement. I know how anxious the fans are to hear something… Please be patient! (2/2)

Sadly, it seems like WB Montreal won’t be at The Game Awards as tweeted by Patrick Redding whose Twitter is also filled with teases for an upcoming project. He also tweeted an image of an owl but that could just be coincidence but hey, we’re scrapping to find any info we can about their upcoming title which could very well be a Batman: Court of Owls game. We hope the meeting goes well with the execs because last time they had a meeting, they were poised to announce a Damian Wayne Batman game but that got rebooted after the Execs didn’t like it and this upcoming game is probably what they’ve been working on since. He also liked a tweet about an Arkham game announcement coming sometime in 2019 but take that with a grain of salt.
With this announcement, both Rocksteady and WB Games Montreal won’t be at The Game Awards which is a damn shame if you ask me because everybody is so excited to know about their upcoming projects.
