In a tweet, Warner Bros Games appears to be hinting for a new Batman game.

The message celebrates the eighty-year anniversary of the caped crusader. The Batman logo can be seen in a video clip. A few times, however, other logos can be seen for a fraction of a second, including those of the Court of Owls and Ra’s al Ghul.

There are several reasons to expect a Batman game to be announcement soon. Sony’s State of Play broadcast tomorrow was briefly retweeted by comicbook writer Scott Snyder with the hashtag “bewarethecourtofowls.” The tweet was deleted again shortly thereafter.

WB Games Montreal is the developer of Batman: Arkham Origins. The other Arkham games are developed by Rocksteady.
