After rolling out a vague yet suggestive tease to celebrate Batman Day back in September, WB Montreal — the studio behind Batman: Arkham Origins that are rumored to be developing a new Dark Knight-centric video game — has been relatively quiet on the Caped Crusader front, as their last social media tease was back in January.

However, according to a recent report from Gamereactor, that silence may be on the verge of being broken, as the official announcement of the next-gen game could come in the next few months.

According to Gamereactor, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s original plan with the game was slowly to tease it up until E3, where it would be revealed at the publisher’s first-ever presser conference. However, COVID-19 got in the way of these plans.

The new, post-COVID-19 plan is to reveal the game sometime this summer. And according to Gamereactor, it’s unlikely anything is going to get in the way of this because the game is set to “release sooner than you may think.”

Unfortunately, the report doesn’t disclose any further details about the game or this alleged “sooner than you may think” release date.” However, it’s worth noting that this report largely echoes previous reports about the game, which were that it would be revealed in the summer, and then released as early as this year.

While reports have been conflicting the far, the latest rumors indicate that the eventual new Batman game will not be a continuation of the critically acclaimed Arkham series. 

Whatever shape the game does take, it’s certainly going to be different than any Batman game we’ve previously seen, as reports indicate that villains such as the Court of Owls, Ra’s al Ghul, and some Amanda Waller-run military force.
