New Batman Game Reportedly Set For a Reveal In May Along With Other Warner Bros. Projects
Warner Bros. Interactive has been teasing a new Batman project and there are rumors of other games like Harry Potter getting a reveal soon.
According to Emre Kaya, who has been quite reliable with his leaks regarding Warner Bros. projects including their films and games, the company was hoping to make a big impression at E3 by announcing their “massive” lineup. There are currently rumors that E3 has been canceled, which was expected due to the situation surrounding the coronavirus, and it could lead Warner Bros. Interactive to look for an alternative to E3 to share their plans.
One of the games that have been rumored for a while now is Harry Potter RPG from Avalanche Software. They have been hiring for new developers while promoting the announcement of their next project, reportedly an open-world Harry Potter RPG with action combat and character customization, in the job description.
The second game that could get a reveal soon is Batman, which was also hinted at by Emre Kaya. This new game is currently in development at Warner Bros. Montreal and will feature storyline from Court of Owls. It has already been teased multiple times so it is only a matter of waiting for an official reveal, which was supposed to happen at E3 but could be pushed ahead to early May now.
Since the rumor talks about multiple Warner Bros. projects, it could include a new game from NetherRealm Studios, who has worked on Mortal Kombat and the Injustice series. Some fans had speculated after the reveal trailer of Joker DLC for Mortal Kombat 11 that it could hint at Injustice 3, but that is still up in the air. Mortal Kombat 11 can also get another Kombat Pack now that the current one has been finalized and ending in March with the Spawn DLC.
Lastly, with next-generation on the horizon, it is possible that the Middle-Earth series also makes a debut in May with the third game. There have been two games released so far with Shadow of Mordor, and Shadow of War. The studio behind the Middle-Earth series, Monolith Productions has been hiring for developers to work on a next-generation project since last year. Shadow of War first launched in 2017 following the critically acclaimed Shadow of Mordor in 2014.
