Early this year, WB Games Montreal started teasing gamers on social media. While nothing came out of just yet. it seems that’s about to change soon, as the WB Games Montreal new game is about to be revealed soon via the DC Fandome event!
The studio is confirmed to be revealing their next project at the all-digital presentation, and will be one of many game companies owned by Warner Bros. that has something to announce at the show. Rocksteady Studios, creator of the Batman Arkahm franchise, have confirmed that they’ll be attending, and we’ll be hearing the first details of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
Over on Twitter, WB Games Montreal tweeted the following message:
— WB Games Montréal (@WBGamesMTL) August 17, 2020
Checking the “r3dakt3d” website, it has a message front and center stating “We have been expecting you 8/18,” which implies that we’ll see something tomorrow on August 18.
Additionally, the tweet includes a quick Court of Owls logo flash. Not familiar? The Court of Owls is a crim group in the Batverse, which means this will be based on Batman — or at least the universe he’s in. Mind, this isn’t new, as it’s been rumored before that WB Games Montreal’s new game is connected to Batman, and features the Court of Owls.
The Court of Owls is an organized crime group and secret society appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with the superheroBatman. They have secretly existed since colonial times in Gotham City. The Court kidnaps child performers from the circus to train and transform them into their assassins, known as Talons, which first appeared in Batman #2 (2011). As part of the 2015–2016 “Robin War” storyline, the Court of Owls had expanded internationally and is referred to as the Parliament of Owls.
Will this new game by WB Games Montreal feature multiplayer? Given Batman Arkham Origins did, we’re assuming this will feature some sort of it, too.
Once we know more details tomorrow, we’ll let our readers know.
