Teasers for the newest Batman game seem to suggest that Batgirl will be a potential character.
Earlier this week Warner Bros released a teaser site for the new game, rumoured to be called Gotham Knights. The teaser is a lead-up to an expected full reveal at the DC FanDome event on August 22nd.
Fans can enter codes on the R3dakt3d.com website (which features the words, “we have be3n expecting you”) each day leading up to the 22nd, with the ability to unlock a new asset with each correct entry.

A Reddit user claims to have uncovered the entry codes for all four days ahead of time. Apparently they form an important piece of evidence when combined – the barcode number for the debut comic book featuring Batgirl.
As pointed out by fans on Twitter, WB Games Montreal also created the Batgirl DLC for 2015’s Arkham Knight.
This may be just a coincidence, but if you put all the codes together to unlock the four teasers from https://t.co/z8Gh4nZYAh, you get "761941364995", which is the EAN number for Detective Comics #359, the debut of Batgirl.

Warner Bros Games Montreal has been hinting at a new Batman game since September 2019 when the company posted images of the caped crusader on their social media pages. The posts were shared (but later deleted) by Batman comic book writer Scott Snyder, who said they were related to the Court of Owls storyline and revealed nothing more.
Warner Bros Games Montreal’s new Batman offering will be unveiled during a 20-minute panel featuring a developer and a Q&A session at DC’s virtual FanDome event on August 22nd.
The game’s title is expected to be Gotham Knights, one of two website domains seemingly registered by Warner Bros in June. The other domain was for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, the next game from Batman: Arkham creator Rocksteady Studios, which is also set to be revealed at DC FanDome.
