I’ve done the maths. I’ve calculated the teases, crunched the numbers and I’ve come to the conclusion that I need someone to hook me up to an IV drip of liquidised NES Batman games because I need some sort of caped crusader content in my veins right now dammit. 330 days ago, Warner Bros. Montreal began officially teasing their next game, dropping a tweet about capturing the knight:
Since then, it has been a torturous drip-feed of rumours, half-truths and complete guesstimations. This week, it looks like the developer is finally ready to lift the lid on what they’ve been cooking, as their latest teasers went live yesterday. A teaser for a game announcement, offering cryptic stuff to eagle-eyed (or maybe Owl-eyed) viewers if they could crack the code. The first breadcrumb started with this tweet, which was meant to steer fans to a website through the use of morse code:
A little bit of sleuthing later, and the URL directed gumshoes to a page that simply said “r3dakt3d”. But there was something else! A countdown is attached to the page, which ends today at 5PM CET. If it’s not a reveal of a Batman game where you fight the Court of Owls and have the entire bat-family joining you for the ride, then it damn well better be that Alfred Pennyworth simulator that dodgy people on 4Chan told me about. Extreme dusting! Quick-time worrying about Master Wayne events! Mastering the art of saying “NEVAH” in a cockney accent through your microphone!
I’d play the heck out of that. Whatever is revealed today, it’ll likely be shown off in more detail this Saturday at DC Fandome.
