Another Mysterious Batman Logo Surfaces from WB Montréal

Another Mysterious Batman Logo Surfaces from WB Montréal

New year, new teaser.

After another few months of total silence, WB Games Montréal is back to teasing its next project. Rumored to be a Batman game featuring the Court of Owls, we last received a hint about the project with a mysterious GIF—this time, WB Montréal split up a single logo three ways, letting fans piece together the picture and puzzle over its meaning.

WB Montréal coordinated the tease across its Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages. When assembled, the finished logo looks like it could be for some kind of police force or other governmental agency. As with the studio's last hint, each post is accompanied by the caption "Capture the Knight."

The studio's previous tease came in late September of last year, when WB Montréal tweeted a GIF that morphs through a few logos with a flame at their center, and one of a demonic looking face. None of the emblems the studio has posted so far can be conclusively tied to this or that group in Batman lore. Really, the strongest lead on the project is still the first, a photo of a WB Montréal developer sporting a t-shirt with an owl logo on the back, suggesting that the shadowy Court of Owls criminal syndicate will play a role in the game.

After that photo sparked rampant speculation, creative director Patrick Redding warned that WB Montréal's project wouldn't make an appearance at The Game Awards 2018. Many hoped that it would have its debut at 2019's award show, but it skipped last month's event too.

WB Montréal's first Batman title, 2013's Batman: Arkham Origins, was released in between Rocksteady's Arkham City and Arkham Knight. While not as well-received as the Rocksteady Arkham trilogy, it's been nearly five years since the last Arkham game and fans are chomping at the bit to learn more about what's next for Gotham's Dark Knight. For now, WB Montréal seems perfectly content to have us keep playing detective outside of the game.
