Batman Rumored "Gotham Knights" Reveals Add Another Puzzle Piece, Even More Court Of Owls Evidence [Update]
A teaser site for the game rumored to be called Gotham Knights has reached 0, resulting in... another teaser.
WB Montreal has been teasing its next Batman game, rumored to be called Gotham Knights, ahead of a planned reveal at DC Fandome. Rumors have circulated for a long time that this game will feature the Court of Owls storyline, which has been supported by some of the teasers. The studio is dropping clues through an official Twitter account, which have revealed codes that unlock parts of a map on the teaser site. Look below for all the updates so far.
Update 6: The game has been officially confirmed and is titled Gotham Knights. It will arrive in 2021 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, and PC. You will be able to play as Red Hood, Batgirl, Robin, and Nightwing.
Update 5: The final teaser revealed a video. While it doesn't give much info, it does show an overview of the map that's been slowly revealed over the last week, with a few glitchy text tidbits for fans to investigate.
Update 4: The "r3dakt3d" Twitter account has now revealed another teaser image, corresponding with a code on the official site. This time the code reveals another piece of the map with the words "Third Times A Charm." Fans have also noticed that the teaser image itself includes what appears to be a row of tiny owls along the bottom.
Update 3: The teaser site has now revealed another code, leading to a second part of the map image with a reference to the Batman villain Two-Face. Given the remaining countdown timers, we can expect another piece of the puzzle on Thursday and Friday, ahead of Saturday's reveal at DC Fandome.
Update 2: The countdown on the teaser site has officially ended, but it failed to reveal anything too new. Instead, it gave the 761 code that fans ascertained before, and unlocked the same map image. It also says to return on 8/19, with new countdown timers for each day this week--presumably leading to the Saturday reveal.
Update: Internet sleuths have started playing World's Greatest Detective themselves by digging into the teaser site for the Gotham Knights announcement. It appears the codes will be unlocking new teasers throughout the week, possibly also showing different icons that may represent factions within the game.
Original Story: WB Games Montreal has been teasing its next game, with a talk scheduled for DC Fandome. But we may hear more about it as soon as tomorrow, judging by new teasers for the game rumored to be called Batman: Gotham Knights.
A teaser issued on Twitter includes an encoded message, along with a short video clip drawing diagrams in a grid. It quickly flashes a more organic-looking image, which some fans have speculated looks similar to an owl emblem. This follows rumors that the new game will be based at least partly on the Court of Owls storyline, in which Batman comes head-to-head against a shadowy cabal of Gotham's elite.
I wonder if every day this week starting tomorrow...we get a new logo, finally filling up the outer circle.— Barrett Courtney (@SadBoyBarrett) August 17, 2020
Inner circle will then be revealed on Saturday with the announcement. Just a guess but I’m confident in it 😬 pic.twitter.com/i9QnWRvi8V
Meanwhile, the official site has started a countdown timer which appears to end at 8 AM tomorrow, 8/18. That could finally be the reveal of the game ahead of the developer chat this weekend, but of course, it could also lead to more teasers.
The teases for WB Montreal's next game have been slowly releasing since September 2019, so an announcement has seemed imminent for some time. Most of the promotion has used the slogan "Capture the Knight." Rumors have suggested this may be called Gotham Knights, a reference to an early 2000s series revolving around the entire Bat-family of crime-fighters.
The WB Montreal panel at DC Fandome will begin at 10:30 AM PT on August 22. Later that day, at 5 PM PT, Rocksteady will show off its Suicide Squad game with a panel titled "Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League." It's unknown right know if that's also the name of the game.
