Warner Bros. Montreal is currently hard at work getting the upcoming Batman game Gotham Knights ready for its 2022 release, but it turns out the studio might have another DC-related iron in the fire: Superman.
Rumours of a Superman game have swirled for years now. It was believed that Rocksteady was developing just such a project post-Arkham Knight, but that ended up being Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League. It was also suggested before Gotham Knights was announced that WB. Montreal was handling the Man Of Steel's big video game revival.

Any Superman speculation kind of petered out when the newest Batman game was revealed, but a new leak has kicked the rumours into overdrive once again. WB. Montreal recently posted a number of job ads seeking talented developers to come and work on a brand-new third-person open-world title based on a new AAA IP.
While there's nothing specifically in any of the job listings to suggest Superman specifically, it does reiterate that the studio is "focused on developing games that expand the DC universe in the interactive space". That narrows things down considerably, but how do we get from there to Superman? This is where Warner Bros. insider James Sigfield enters the picture.
Sigfield accurately predicted Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice ahead of their official reveals last year, and has now taken to Twitter to tease Superman by posting GIFs of the hero in response to the news of WB. Montreal's latest project. He also stressed that when WB. Montreal says "new" AAA IP, they mean a new franchise for an existing character, in the same way Gotham Knights is a new IP based on Batman and friends.
Whatever WB. Montreal is cooking up, it'll be a long while before we find out. The studio was rumoured to have been working on Gotham Knights for years before it was finally shown off, and the job listings for this latest project suggest it's in the early stages of development. Let's just hope it really is Superman, because it's been way too long since the guy has had his own game to star in.
