Warner Bros. Montreal may be working on a new game featuring the villainous Court of Owls from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's run on Batman.
Valerie Vezina, an assistant producer for Warner Bros. Montreal, posted a picture of a shirt on Twitter. The caption on the photo reads, "[REDACTED], best. DevTeam. EVAR," which means that the shirt is likely a reference to whatever has been redacted from the tweet. The logo on the shirt looks remarkably similar to that of the Court of Owls in the comics.
Although this is definitely not official confirmation, it's hard not to view it as a pretty good indication of one of the studio's current project. If this is indeed an indication that Warner Bros. Montreal is working on a Batman game, it's not clear if that game will be set in the universe established in the Batman: Arkham series. There's also a distinct possibility that the studio will use the Court of Owls for a game starring a hero other than Batman.
Created by Snyder and Capullo, the Court of Owls first appeared in 2011's Batman #3. The Court of Owls is a secret society formed by some of Gotham's oldest and most elite families and uses nigh unkillable assassins known as Talons.
Warner Bros. Montreal is known for developing 2013's Batman: Arkham Origins. In 2015, job postings for the developer revealed that it was working on two new titles based on DC Comics. At one point, Warner Bros. Games Montreal was rumored to be working on a Superman game, though that game has never materialized or been officially announced.
