Somewhere between now and August 22nd, Warner Bros. Montreal will provide a first look at its upcoming new Batman game.

At least, that’s what Geeks Worldwide journalist James Sigfield claims on Twitter following an announcement from DC Comics about its upcoming DC fan event on August 22 – DC Fandome. According to Sigfield, who has been reporting on the rumored soft reboot of the Batman franchise for a couple of months now, it’s unsure whether we’ll be receiving an actual announcement of the game, but it’s clear that Warner Bros. will provide a first look at their yet to be announced new title.

Earlier this year, following reports from other sources earlier this year, the journalist reported that WB Montreal’s new title is said to be soft reboot of the whole Batman series. Concept art for this title was reportedly leaked shortly after that.

The new Batman game is allegedly releasing this Fall. The game has been described as a “primarily” next-gen title, which implies that we’re looking at cross-gen Batman installment for the current-gen console, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC.

As always, we will keep you posted as soon as more info on this rumored new Batman title comes in.
