Dark Night's Daunting Delays
Following some teasers spread throughout the end of 2019 and 2020, it looks like we may be getting a new Batman game sometime in 2021 — and the source of these rumors is certainly interesting. Could this be the hotly-anticipated Batman: Court of Owls?
Late last year, we first heard some rumors about Batman: Court of Owls, the next Batman video game from WB Games. A few months later, a WB Games teaser popped up and cause a measure of annoyance at showing no actual gameplay; it only revealed a logo that continued the Court of Owls hints.
Now, a previously reliable leaker has come out to say that we were supposed to get a new Batman game sometime this year, but it may be pushed back until sometime in 2021.
New Batman Game May Be Delayed Until 2021
"New Batman Game, end of 2020, potentially in 2021 - was told it was originally planned for Holiday 2020," stated @HotGirlVideos69 on Twitter. "Told potentially small delay due to COVID-19. Source is semi-reliable pay pig. Loves humiliation - typically honest. "
You may be questioning how what is an apparent cam girl Twitter account has gaming rumors or why she's considered reliable. Believe it or not, this same account called the cancellation of E3 2020 — and she did it a full week before the announcement. She also correctly dated an upcoming Nintendo Direct in March. That E3 cancellation leak may have just been a lucky guess, but having reliable information twice makes it more likely that she has some industry insiders as her customers.
The potential release date for a new Batman game wasn't the only leak @HotGirlVideos69 decided to shoot out today. According to her, a new Skylanders game is in development using a new model for "Toys to Life" and GPS functionality. Furthermore, she claims that Nintendo is working on some new Amiibo functionality.
So far, our leaker's track recent isn't half-bad. If they're right, we should be seeing a new Batman game before the end of the year if we're lucky.
