Batman: Arkham Knight Canceled Sequel Info Seemingly Leaks
Information has come to light about the Batman Arkham game that never came to be.
A leak of information regarding a canceled Batman: Arkham Knight sequel has surfaced online.
The leak includes story details, concept art, and game features. Additionally, WB Montreal, the studio behind this project and Batman: Arkham Origins, is said to have shortly worked on both a Suicide Squad and Superman game. An anonymous user released the information on 4chan, which does bring into question the credibility.
Concept art, reportedly from WB Games Montreal’s canceled Arkham Knight sequel starring Damian Wayne as Batman, have surfaced online. The game was going to feature the Batbike, a female version of Black Mask, old Bruce Wayne & a Nemesis System.

In the canceled game, players would take control of Damian Wayne in the cape and cowl. It would take place in a decrepit Gotham City where Damian would ride the Batbike. This is similar to Batman and the Batmobile in Batman: Arkham Knight. Just like in the Middle-Earth franchise, there were plans to implement a nemesis system. There is no information as to how it would have worked comparatively in this Batman title.
However, the leak does include concept art for a variety of villains including, Two-Face, Gorilla Grodd, and a female Black Mask. It was also going to feature an old Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson.
Most recently, there are rumors that the Montreal team is working on a Batman game based on the Court of Owls storyline. Late last year, developers of the team teased the game on Twitter which led to Court of Owls creator Scott Snyder retweeting IGN’s story about the rumor.
Since the leak, the studio has made no comment regarding the canceled sequel or the rumored Court of Owls game. While there is no confirmation, perhaps we’ll learn something about WB’s new game in the coming months. You can view the alleged concept art from the canceled Arkham game here.
