Cancelled Batman Arkham Knight Sequel Concept Art Leaked
It’s been some time since we last heard from Rocksteady Studios or Warner Bros. Montreal. The two studios were responsible for shaping the iconic Batman Arkham series, arguably the best superhero games ever made. While there’s been plenty of rumor and innuendo surrounding their next project, no official word has come out of either studio for years. Many alleged leaks came out about a Superman, Suicide Squad, and new Batman game, most of which have been quashed. However, there may be some truth to the latter’s existence, as the post also revealed concept art from the cancelled Batman Arkham Knight sequel.
In a post originating on one of the most notorious websites in the world (4chan), concept art was leaked showing various Batman characters from an unannounced Batman game. Some of the concept art can be seen below. The post was deleted, but you can check out the rest of the concept art from a post on a relatively less horrible website here. Reddit u/virgilhawkins17 summarizes that a sequel to Batman Arkham Knight would’ve featured Damian Wayne as the Batman. As the surname implies, Damian is Bruce Wayne’s son who allegedly survived the explosion at Wayne Manor at the end of Arkham Knight. The game would’ve been influenced by Batman Beyond, with Bruce taking the handler role and Damian under the cowl instead of fan favorite Terry McGinnis.
The original post also claims that WB Montreal was indeed making a Suicide Squad game that ended up being canceled. That, and the Superman game unfortunately never got past concept stages. WB Montreal is allegedly working on a different Batman game while Rocksteady will be working on a “Superhero creation game.” As always, these types of leaks should be taken with a grain of salt, though it’s hard to discredit concept art when it’s staring you in the face.
