Batman: Arkham Knight PS4 PlayStation 4

Update: The developer has posted a fresh teaser this evening, showing those mysterious symbols much more clearly. Current speculation is that this new Batman game will focus on the Court of Owls, a secret society and criminal organisation. All eyes on State of Play, then -- this should be a hoot.


Original Story: The caped crusader has emerged from the video game shadows after quite some time on hiatus. Batman: Arkham Knight was his last major title, and it's currently available on PlayStation Plus as one of the monthly offerings. Over the weekend, the world celebrated Batman Day, illuminating many big cities with the iconic bat signal.

WB Games Montréal joined in with the celebrations, tweeting out this mysterious clip:

What makes this interesting are several blink-and-you'll-miss-it symbols that flash on and off throughout the video. Given the timing, with Batman Day just gone, the superhero's 80th anniversary, and State of Play right around the corner, it seems to us we're on the verge of an announcement. This is purely speculation, but we won't be surprised if a new Batman game is revealed during Sony's live broadcast tomorrow.

What do you think? Is the dark knight returning in a new game, and will it be unveiled during State of Play? Vote yes or nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah (BATMAN) in the comments below.
