Batman: Arkham gamers have been hopeful on a new video game for over four years now, and they just might end up getting their wish.
WB Games Montreal - the developer for Batman: Arkham Origins - posted a celebratory tweet for the 80th anniversary of Batman's first appearance in the comic books. Fans of the Arkham franchise believe that the studio is hinting at a potential sequel.
Have a look for yourself and interpret it however you wish.
You'll notice that numerous symbols briefly appeared throughout the 30-second video. Some are interpreting these symbols as belonging to the Court of Owls and Ra's al Ghul - who appeared in Batman: Arkham City.
You can have a closer look at the symbols below:
The last video game in the franchise, Batman: Arkham Knight, was released in 2015. The mysterious ending to the game's plot left the possibility open for another sequel - but it was also set up to close the doors on the Batman: Arkham series for good.
Rocksteady Studios developed Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, which were released in 2009 and 2011, respectively. WB Games Montreal installed Batman: Arkham Origins (released in 2013), with the plot taking place before the stories in the first two games.
Rocksteady developed and released Batman: Arkham Knight two years later. The studio hasn't dropped any recent hints about doing a sequel to the fourth game of the series, so it WB Games Montreal appears to be the last hope for those who are hoping for another game.
Batman: Arkham Origins focused on a less experienced, arrogant and younger Batman. Roger Craig Smith provided the voice for Batman/Bruce Wayne, replacing Kevin Conroy. Troy Baker provided the voice of Joker instead of Mark Hamill.
In regards to a potential sequel, the options are endless for WB Games Montreal. They could either do a plot between the events of Arkham Origins and Arkham Asylum, or they might do something following Arkham Knight. Of course, this is merely speculation for now- and we won't believe another Arkham game is happening until/unless it's formally announced.
