Rocksteady might be the storied developers of Batman games, but what if another studio is working on a DC-centered game? If a new leak is to be believed, Warner Bros. Montreal could be developing a new Batman game.

As you can imagine, they meet some pretty fierce opposition from Batman. Warner Bros. Montreal previously developed Batman: Arkham Origins, which debuted in the years between Rocksteady's Arkham City, and Arkham Knight.
However, creative director Patrick Redding has shot down speculation about the game being shown off at The Game Awards 2018. With the tweet below, Redding stated that the studio won't be at the awards ceremony, much like how Rocksteady's Sefton Hill shut down rumors that the British studio would be over in LA for The Game Awards later in the week.
... We're not doing the glamorous part of the job just yet. We're headed down to meet with our WB partners and showcase the team's hard work and share our excitement. I know how anxious the fans are to hear something... Please be patient! (2/2)Patrick Redding (@Holesinteeth) December 2, 2018
While neither Rocksteady or Warner Bros. Montreal will be making an appearance at The Game Awards later this week, plenty of other developers will be. For a full list of all the award nominees, head over to our Game Awards 2018 guide.
