It's been a while since the caped crusader took to the virtual streets of Gotham, but we might be seeing him return soon. An ambiguous social media post from WB Games Montréal today seems to indicate that something Batman related is on the way.
In a tweet posted today, WB Montréal posted a transforming symbol, with the caption "Capture the Knight / Cape sur la nuit." The logo morphs through several permutations, all seeming to indicate who-or what-the Dark Knight could find himself up against.

I maintain that this is a fancy Rorschach test, but fans are speculating wildly about which members of Batman's rogues gallery this could indicate. Our own Mike Williams, resident Batman expert, seems to think the demon head indicates Ra's al Ghul, the immortal enemy of Bats, is a prime suspect. There are also theories that one of the symbols indicates the Court of Owls, a shadowy organization at the center of one of Batman's more recent arcs.
This is the second Batman tease Montréal has let out recently, after a video of the Bat-symbol projected on the side of a building showed a few cuts to another Owl-like symbol. The studio also let a logo slip via T-shirt not too long ago. WB Montréal is the team behind Arkham Origins, so it wouldn't be terribly surprising to see it working on a new Batman.
We'll likely see more this week, as the teases seem to be ramping up and there are some good venues for game announcements coming in the next 24 hours or so. It's nice to know that a studio is keeping the spirit of one of the best superhero franchises in games alive.
