WB Games Montreal is continuing to slowly tease a new Batman game on social media. The latest tease for what may or may not be a game based upon Scott Snyder’s critically acclaimed Court of Owls comic book arc comes in the form of three separate images. The studio posted one image each on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. They were all posted with the caption “Capture the Knight” in French and English. It didn’t take long for fans to combine all three images into one and learn that they create a new logo that hasn’t been seen before.

Back in September of last year, WB Games Montreal posted the same “Capture the Knight” slogan and a mysterious video shortly after celebrating Batman’s 80th anniversary. In a subsequently deleted tweet, Scott Snyder quoted the celebration and told fans to “wait for it.” The post was accompanied by a hashtag that said “beware the Court of Owls,” a clear reference to his Batman arc.
WB Games Montreal previously worked on the Wii U port of Batman: Arkham City and led development on 2013’s Batman: Arkham Origins. The latter title served as a prequel to Rocksteady Studios’ Batman: Arkham trilogy of open-world action games that completed with the release of Batman: Arkham Knight in 2015. Origins was generally positively received by critics, although it was largely thought to be a step down from Arkham City, which garnered critical acclaim and won many game of the year awards.
