Warner Bros. Montreal Looking To Expand The DC Interactive Universe
Disregarding titles such as DC Universe Online and Injustice, DC heroes have had a poor showing in video games and certainly their singleplayer outings have been few and far between; often quite mediocre or worse when they do come. The best DC has had would certainly be the Batman Arkham series in the same way that DC hasn’t had a good movie in a while apart from the Nolan trilogy.
Batman: Arkham Origins developer, WB Montreal, may be looking to expand DC’s gaming universe and possibly produce some quality games for heroes such as Superman or Green Arrow given the popularity of the character since the start of his own TV series.

While the studio is still unproven and will definitely have to deliver in order to be trusted with any other DC properties, a recent job listing asks for a creative director with experience in “next-generation AAA action/adventure games”. the ad goes on to say that the candidate will join a team “responsible for expanding the DC Comics universe in the interactive space”.
It certainly suggest some sort of next-gen superhero game, possibly even a Justice League title. For now, let’s keep our eyes focused on Arkham Origins and see whether WB Montreal can come good on that first.
