WB E-Nigmatically Teases Batman Game with Images, 'Capture the Knight'

WB Montreal shares images to its social media profiles, once again using the tagline, "Capture the Knight."

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is seemingly teasing a new entry in the publisher's vaunted Batman series. Earlier today, the studio shared three pictures to its social media channels: one on Twitter, one on Facebook, and one on Instagram. 

Each of the three images were part of a larger whole, which, of course, Batman fans have already pieced together. From the looks of it, the symbol shares elements with the Gotham City Police Department Crest. However, it doesn't match exactly. 


This isn't the first time Warner Bros. has teased a new Batman game in the last two years. In 2018, we reported on a social media post from WB Montreal assistant producer Valerie Vezina. In the picture shared to Twitter, Vezina wore a shirt that appeared to show the symbol of The Court of Owls. 

In January 2019, we reported on a rumor that said the next Batman game would be called Batman: Arkham Crisis. However, the rumors surrounding that title proved to either be false or premature. Nothing came of Batman: Arkham Crisis in the following months. 

In September 2019, WB shared a cryptic GIF on Twitter, with the tagline "Capture the Knight/Cape sur la nuit". Though we missed it at the time, it appears the Tweet was one of the first "official" teases surrounding the Batman project being teased by the picture above. 

While Rocksteady Studios has developed most of the Batman: Arkham games, including Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Arkham Knight, WB Montreal was the studio behind Batman: Arkham Origins

While Origins is currently the lowest-scored game in the Arkham franchise, some loved the game for its portrayal of the Caped Crusader, as well as the new system introduced by the development team. 

Only time will tell what WB Montreal is teasing. Hopefully, we won't go almost another full year before we get more information — even if it is just another e-nigmatic social media post.
