Batman: Arkham Origins developer WB Games Montreal teases his new game. The studio tweeted today, September 22, for the first time in more than four years, with a seemingly cryptic teaser for a new project.
The tweet celebrates the 80th anniversary of Batman's first comic book appearance in 1939 with A video showing the bat signal projected onto a building. But there is more behind it. The video also contains flashes of mysterious symbols at: 03 and: 21, which you can see below.

WB Games Montreal has numerous vacancies on its job site, one of which mentions that the studio is working on an "unannounced AAA game". The studio is huge as it currently employs more than 300 people and continues to employ people.
In 2016, Kotaku reported that WB Games Montreal had canceled a suicide squad game and shifted focus to a new Batman game with Damian Wayne. This may be the new title teased by WB Games Montreal, as Damian Wayne appeared in the 2012 comic "Night of Owls," which focuses on Batman's fight against the Court of Owls. However, nothing was confirmed.
In 2018, Osama Dorias, senior designer of WB Games Montreal, said in the Humans of Gaming podcast that the studio is working on a "couple project" connected to the DC universe. One of these games is a "big console game, open world, DC universe," said Dorias.
Meanwhile, Batman: Arkham Knight Studio Rocksteady is also working on a new project, although it was not announced.
People speculate that an upcoming release of the Batman game could take place this week at the PlayStation State of Play event, though none believed it at all.
