Batman: Arkham Legacy will allegedly be officially announced at the upcoming Game Awards 2019 ceremony. Rumors have been rampant regarding a new addition to the popular video game series, with a previous report noting that the entire Bat-family may be available as playable characters.
The news comes from YouTuber Coby - SLCMOF, who revealed that a source had informed him that the game would be announced during the Video Game Awards on Dec. 12. The YouTube channel will be hosting a stream addressing these leaked details, noting that "This information comes from the same guy that provided me with leaked images from the canceled Damian Wayne Batman game YEARS before they leaked to the public. He is very reliable, although nothing is 100% and the same goes with this scoop as we will discuss tomorrow."
Images and concept art from the aforementioned canceled Damian Wayne game were leaked earlier in the year and teased that Damian would have been the one in the Batsuit. Despite highlighting how no leak can be guaranteed, the YouTuber stressed that his source is incredibly reliable, giving him faith that Batman: Arkham Legacy is impending. WB Games and developer WB Games Montreal actively teased their fanbase this past September, hinting at a Batman game announcement.
WB Games Montreal's previous addition to the series was Batman: Arkham Origins in 2013, which served as a prequel to Rocksteady Studios' 2009 game Batman: Arkham Asylum. Other mainline entries in the series include Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Knight.
