Batman: Arkham Origins Studio Is Gearing Up To Redeem Itself
Warner Bros. Montreal’s first major triple-A project was Batman: Arkham Origins which ended up being far too much of the same after Arkham City but was actually quite good in its own way. At the very least it had some absolutely brilliant moments involving Joker as well as the relationship between a fledgling Batman and Alfred.
Of course, the biggest mistake the studio made was in not fixing the game’s technical issues before releasing no less than about eight pieces of DLC. The studio picked up a significantly bad rep for it. Perhaps that should have been a warning sign of what’s become commonplace with triple-A games. However, that’s besides the point.

It seems as though Warner Bros. Montreal is gearing up for not one but two new triple-A games based in the DC Universe.
They’re expanding in just about every area according to the studio’s Jobs page so this certainly seems to be a bulk hire to facilitate simultaneous development of two big games.
With Batman’s rampant popularity not likely to diminish anytime soon it is possible that with the Arkham series wrapped up WB Montreal may be looking to start afresh with a new Batman game (please let it be Gotham by Gaslight or Batman Beyond) but it would undoubtedly be far more interesting to explore other heroes in the DC Universe such as Wonder Woman or Superman. Perhaps more relevant would be Green Arrow and The Flash given the more grounded nature of these characters in terms of how much freedom they’d have in exploring any sandbox environment. Not to mention their immense popularity given their respective series on The CW.
Alternately we could see a wacky Suicide Squad game.
