DC’s hottest property, Batman, seems to be the only superhero who can thrive in all media outside of the comics, not just in the movies but also television and games. In fact, the Batman Arkham series has long been one of the more successful superhero-related franchises in gaming today.
Now it seems a new chapter in the Batman Arkham series is forthcoming as there have been cryptic teases dropped over the past week on Warner Bros. Games Montreal’s Twitter account showing different parts of what appears to be some sort of badge or emblem.
The three cryptic images were brought together by Batman Arkham Games’ Twitter account who revealed the final picture with the caption, “Full logo teasing the new WB Games Montreal’s project” with the hashtag “#CaptureTheKnight”.
The logo indeed appears to be some sort of law enforcement emblem, potentially a new logo for the Gotham City Police Department who do feature somewhat prominently in the Batman Arkham video games.
However, eagle-eyed fans of the Dark Knight games speculate that there is still more to come before the logo is completely whole, especially as WB Games Montreal teased the upcoming Capture The Knight game a couple of months ago by showing several other symbols that didn’t include this most recent logo.
The Arkham series first debuted in August 2009 with Batman: Arkham Asylum and has to date consisted of nine games on various platforms from consoles such as PlayStation, Xbox, and the Nintendo 3DS.
The games have included voice actors reprising roles they made famous in the DC Animated Universe such as Kevin Conroy voicing Batman, as well as Mark Hamill and Arleen Sorkin voicing supervillains Joker and Harley Quinn respectively in the earlier installments of the series.
The gaming series also spawned a Direct-to-DVD animated movie Batman: Assault on Arkham which featured the Batman: Arkham version of the Suicide Squad within the realms of the video game universe.

No official details have been given as to whether #CaptureTheKnight will be the name of the upcoming Arkham game or when the game will be released.
The Arkham series is available on various PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, PC, and Mobile platforms.
