For practically half a year now, WB Interactive has been giving hints about a new Batman game. After a successful trilogy in the Batman Arkham titles, fans have been curious what WB games would do next. Apart from the small scale Batman: Arkham VR in 2016, there hasn’t been a full Batman in five years. Something has to be going on with the world’s smartest detective.
Well, a recent Tweet has reignited the guessing game. Reading “Capture The Knight” and showing a partial logo, fans have been digging around various WB social media accounts after the tweet went out. If this isn’t a teaser for a new Batman game, then someone at WB is trolling us hard.
Without knowledge of the Batman franchise, it’s hard to figure out what this all means. Fan account “Batman Arkham Videos” speculates that these logos could be related to Amanda Waller. While not a household name, Waller acts as the director of the Suicide Squad in DC’s comics universe. With the squad having been brought to prominence with the 2016 film (and a James Gunn remake/reboot/sequel soon to follow), maybe Rocksteady’s next assignment will see Batman tangoing with the likes of Deadshot, Killer Croc, Enchantress, and Harley Quinn.
It would be killer promotion for an upcoming movie, at any rate. The first two Arkham games weren’t related to the then-ongoing Christopher Nolan film series when they released, but they definitely acted as a way to bolster marketing for the movies. Since people are hot on Harley right now, it would make sense for WB to want to capitalize on that fervor with a new Batman title.
Even if that isn’t the case, it definitely is about time for a new Batman outing. The character might be overused in the realm of comics and movies, but his gaming outings have been quite tame. Telltale tried its hand at creating a more detective focused series, but fans have been itching to get back into combat with the Dark Knight.
