After Batman Arkham undeniable impact on the video gaming space, we were left with a bit of a void when the Rocksteady Game fell a bit silent. Now from the shadows of Gotham, WB Games teases a secret to the gaming society with a cryptic teaser that is not all the way cryptic.
In a tweet from WB Games Montréal, symmetrical ominous symbols are seen morphing into each other with the caption reading “Capture The Knight”. This and considering the account only became active again recently with the celebration of Batman Day, well we can take for granted something Batman-themed in the vein of Batman Arkham is surely on its way.
It seems to be the relative consensus that the symbols may be connected to the secret society Court Of Owls, which features heavily in the Batman Mythos, and by extension Ra’s Al Ghul.
Check out the tweet:
And if Gotham’s illuminati is not enough of a rich narrative tapestry to pull from, maybe consider this cautionary poem of theirs:
Beware the Court of Owls, that watches all the time.
Ruling Gotham from the shadowed perch, Behind granite and lime.
They watch you at your hearth, they watch you in your bed.
Speak not a whispered word of them, or they’ll send the Talon for your head!
