It seems there is a new rumour each day when it comes to superhero games. The latest of these concerns WB Montreal, the developer behind the Batman: Arkham Origins, which is, in my opinion, an underrated gem. Thanks to a tweet from the company’s assistant developer, the internet is buzzing.
The tweet that started the Batman: Cout of Owls rumours shows the company’s assistant producer Valerie Venzina wearing a T-shirt that has an emblem of an owl at the back, an emblem that suspiciously resembles the one used by the infamous Court of Owls in the comic books. She also redacted the name of the game she is currently working on in the tweet. This has left many speculating that a Batman game centred around the Court of Owls could be their next project.

In the comics, the Court of Owls is a group of Gotham’s most powerful citizens who use their power and influence to manipulate the events that take place in the city in order to serve their own twisted goals.
For those expecting the team to reveal the game at The Game Awards, there is some sad news as the team’s creative director Patrick Redding did tweet that they will not be making an appearance at the event. That said, he did fuel the rumours of a new Batman: Court of Owls game by re-tweeting an image of an owl too.
As with all rumours, especially ones concerning the Caped Crusader, it’s important to take them with a pinch of salt.
