The upcoming Batman game from WB Games Montreal is reportedly titled Batman Gotham Knights and will feature four main playable characters including Robin, Nightwing and Batwoman.

Rumours about the upcoming Batman game from WB Games Montreal have been floating around ever since the developer started teasing the game last year. Wierd symbols, gifs and logos teasing what appears to be Court of Owls game have been shared since then but we are yet to get an official reveal.

However, it looks like the long wait is over and WB Games Montreal are finally ready to reveal their project, which has been in development for more than five years. At the upcoming DC Fandome event, Warner Bros. game studios will showcase their new project, one of them being a brand new Batman game.

And thanks to a leak, which appeared over at 4chan today, we have a couple of new details about the title. Keep in mind that everything you are about to read could be fake since it's coming from this controversial gaming forum.

The leak states that the game is titled Batman: Gotham Knights and will have a large open-world city, divided into 17 districts, with each district controlled by an Elite Talon. It features four playable characters including Batman, NightWing, Damian Wayne's Robin and Batwoman. Harley Quinn is apparently a bonus pre-order character, which does not make sense and it's not clear if Quinn is a playable character or not.

Players will get to switch between these characters at any time similar to GTA V's system. The main antagonist is the Court of Owls as previously rumoured. The Court has bosses named Talons that will go after the character that defeated them. Once you defeat an Elite Talon, you take control of that district, opening access to new upgrades, crafting materials and more. 

Last but not least, the Three Jokers, which are based on Geoff Johns' upcoming comic are controlling the Court. The game is launching in early 2021 to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC and Stadia.
