Is it (finally) going to actually happen?
A new Batman: Arkham game from WB Games Montreal, the developers of Batman: Arkham Origins, has been in the rumour mill for what seems like ages now. And after all this time, it seems like the game might finally get officially unveiled at tonight’s The Game Awards. A very recent rumour suggested just as much, and now, a tease from a source much closer to the game itself has done so as well.
Roger Craig Smith, who voiced Bruce Wayne / Batman in Batman: Arkham Origins recently took to Twitter, telling people to keep their “eyes and ears” on The Game Awards tonight, before teasing that there’s “a little something” that’s “cooking up” at the show for audiences. Smith himself has teased this project multiple times in recent weeks and months, so this isn’t the first time he’s done this.
In fact, multiple other sources have teased this announcement in the recent past as well. Scott Snyder, the creator of the Batman: Court of Owls storyline in the comics, also did so, which is relevant because the rumours keep insisting that the new game is going to be based on the Court of Owls. Meanwhile, WB Games Montreal themselves have also dropped a couple hints here and there of late.
The Game Awards are going to be packed with plenty of new announcements. Including Batman: Arkham Legacy (if it does indeed get announced), there’s going to be a total of 15 new game reveals, of which a new Crash Bandicoot game might also be one. Beyond that, we’re also in for new updates on the likes of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Half-Life: Alyx, Ghost of Tsushima, and more.
Keep them eyes and ears on @thegameawards tonight!
Got a little somethin' we're cookin' up for ya…
