It’s been a while since we last saw the Caped Crusader swinging through the rooftops of Gotham, and by this time, fans of the “Batman: Arkham” franchise is yearning to have a new addition in the series.
While Dark Knight loyalists are still crossing their fingers in hopes of a new game, a new rumor was recently discovered by a number of sources. Three names that can be considered pillars of the “Batman: Arkham” series took to Twitter where they divulged some tasty tidbits of good things to come.
According to Comic Book, Roger Craig Smith, the voice behind Batman and Bruce Wayne in “Batman: Arkham Origins” and writer Ryan Galleta exchanged Tweets and teased readers about what seems to be a new project.
Smith said that he’s “super bummed” that he cannot share to the world what he’s working on because of a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA. Of course, these kinds of Tweets are lined with refusal to admit hints but yes, the voice actor pointed on something that he can assure “you does not exist.”
Scrolling down Smith’s post is a rebuttal by Galleta, who said that his part was “even worse” considering that he too cannot speak his mind about a “nonexistent confidential project” that he and Smith are working on together. By now most of us would understand what they’re talking about, but both men kept their cool and hanged fans on the edge of their seats.
Games Radar on the other hand pointed that Smith’s Tweet could have meant anything. Smith, the article added, has played Sonic the Hedgehog, Chris Redfield, Ezio from “Assassin’s Creed” and “dozens of other well-known characters” from games to movies to even anime.
However, Galleta’s reply “narrowed down” the opinion to video games. What made the conversation more interesting is that Warner Bros. publicist Gary Miereanu also broke his silence and added to the anticipation by saying that he thanked both men and they’ll “let the cat out of the bag reasonably soon.”
The exchange was short and didn’t exactly exposed much, but PlayStation Lifestyle was keen on the idea that that these three men were talking about could possibly be the “Court of Owls” game that was previously hinted. Warner Bros. Montreal was last seen as the development force behind 2013′s “Batman: Arkham Origins” and “Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition” in 2012. In addition, the video game developer is also working on two “DC Comics based video game.”
Could this be the start of a new “Batman” title? There’s no telling at this point, but there’s no harm in having a couple of what if’s here and there.
