Rumors about a new Arkham game picked up additional steam a month ago when developer WB Games Montreal posted a short video to its social media accounts that featured an insignia used by the Court of Owls, an underground crime group created by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo in 2011. News of the video followed reports last year which indicated the Court of Owls would be included as the game's antagonists.
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.
An official announcement for Batman: Arkham Legacy remains to be seen.
