Bat vs Owl
Even to this day, the Arkham Trilogy stands tall as not only the greatest example of a Batman game to date, but also one of the medium’s best representations of both the Dark Knights and his gallery of iconic villains. Of course, in spite of that high bar, it’s certainly not going to distract other studios from having a swing at creating that video game gold that Rocksteady managed to deliver. If rumors are to be believed, the fellas over at WB Montreal might be working on a new Batman title, one that focuses on the infamous antagonists known as the Court of Owls.
According to an article on IGN –
A new Batman game featuring the villainous Court of Owls may just have been teased.
Warner Bros. Montreal assistant producer Valerie Vezina has tweeted a picture of a T-shirt featuring a logo that’s extremely similar to that of the Court of Owls, and pointedly redacted the name of the game she’s working on. It’s led some to believe that a Batman game centred around the shadowy group is on the way.
The Court of Owls is a group of Gotham’s most powerful citizens, which manipulates events in the city to serve their own interests. Naturally, Batman enjoys intervening.
The idea of a Batman game coming out of WB Montreal is lent credibility by the fact that we know the studio has been working on two games set in the DC Universe.
It wouldn’t be new ground for WB Montreal, which previously made Batman: Arkham Origins between Rocksteady’s Arkham City and Arkham Knight.
Given the immense popularity as well as potential that the Court of Owls pose as far as video game villains go, it’s easy to see why fans would be excited. Investigating the secret society would make for equal parts combat and detective work. Then again, this is the same studio that gave us the step-child of the Arkham series, which upon release was widely criticised for its torrent of glitches and game-breaking bugs. Let’s hope that things have improved since then.
