Concept art has surfaced, supposedly from a cancelled Superman game being developed by WB Montreal, the studio behind Batman: Arkham Origins and the DLC episodes for Batman: Arkham Knight.
For years, rumors have circulated regarding the next game from either Rocksteady Studios or WB Montreal, the studios responsible for the Batman: Arkham series of video games.
The main trilogy was developed by Rocksteady, while the spin-off prequel, Arkham: Origins, was made by WB Montreal. However, both studios have been virtually silent since the release of Batman: Arkham Knight in 2015.
In the intervening years between then and now, rumors have swirled over what projects the developers would tackle, with internet rumblings pointing towards either a Superman game, a Suicide Squad title, a Justice League team-up, or another solo Batman adventure.
To date, none of these have been fully confirmed, but a recent spate of cryptic social media posts from WB Montreal suggest the company is working on a Batman solo title that will heavily feature The Court of Owls as villains.
Is This Superman’s Cancelled Game Concept Art?
Like you’ve seen above, A Twitter users, tatlinsky, did some snooping around the portfolio of a former WB Montreal concept artist and came across a piece of art suggesting the studio was working on a video game starring the Man of Steel himself, Superman.
The image depicts the iconic hero flying above the streets of a city one can only assume is Metropolis.
Still No Official Confirmation From WB Montreal
But here’s the thing, nor DC neither WB Montreal have confirmed the official status of that image tweet. So yeah again, let’s just take all of this as a rumor for this time being okay?
But, if that Metropolis image is indeed official, what do you think about that guys?
