The studio – which was responsible for Batman: Arkham Origins back in 2013 – may be working on a new game rumoured to be Batman: Court of Owls, if 2018 rumours prove correct.
For those who don’t realise, WB Montreal is in essence Warner’s studio dedicated to expanding the DC Video Game Universe. And in the past the Montreal development history has been largely Batman/DC focussed.
Towards the end of last year a new job role suggested that the studio is working on something for the next generation of consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
The job description can be found below.
