Cancelled Batman Game Concept Art Includes a Bearded Bruce Wayne

There isn’t any higher approach to spruce up your getting older superhero than by giving him a salt-and-pepper beard. That is my philosophy anyway, and apparently, the idea artist for a cancelled Batman recreation agrees.

Goran Bukvic, a contract idea artist within the online game and movie trade, revealed a batch of idea artwork for what was presupposed to be a brand new Batman recreation. He additionally revealed the idea artwork of a extra high-tech Batsuit that bears some resemblance to the Batman Past swimsuit.

Bukvic’s credit embody work on Gears 4 and 5, Halo 4, Tomb Raider, and movies like Jurassic World 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy.

On his ArtStation, Bukvic notes the Batman idea artwork was achieved for a canceled recreation “a very long time in the past.” On his LinkedIn, Bukvic lists a canceled recreation referred to as “Batman: The Darkish Knight” amongst his many credit, plus stints at Warner Bros. Montreal in 2015 and 2016.

Bukvic could also be describing the canceled 2006 PS3/Xbox 360 recreation by the identical identify. That recreation was being revealed by EA and developed by Pandemic Studios (Star Wars: Battlefront, Destroy All People) as a tie-in to Christopher Nolan’s The Darkish Knight movie, with improvement starting earlier than filming had begun.

It is also potential that the idea artwork may come from Bukvic’s time at Warner Bros, which acquired the Batman online game license from EA. Bukvic labored from April to September 2015 on an unannounced recreation, after which returned from June 2016 to October 2016 to work on character designs for an “unannounced AAA title.”

That timeline matches up with the rumored canceled Arkham Knight sequel. Earlier leaks indicated that gamers would fill the footwear of Damian Wayne taking on for an getting older Bruce Wayne. Curiously, one of many tidbits of leaked information was {that a} new Batcycle can be a drivable car, and Bukvic’s artwork features a modern bike that definitely suits the invoice.

It is unlikely we’ll see Bukvic’s artwork come to life in WB Montreal’s subsequent Batman undertaking, Gotham Knights, which is at the moment scheduled to launch someday in 2022. The official pitch for Gotham Knights is that Batman’s proteges (together with Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin, and Pink Hood) come collectively to defeat the Illuminati-like Courtroom of Owls following Batman’s supposed loss of life. As everyone knows, comedian e book heroes are inclined to not keep useless, so maybe there will be room for a bearded bat in the long run.
