Canceled Batman game concept art includes bearded Bruce Wayne

There is no better way than giving an aged superhero a salt and pepper beard. It’s my philosophy anyway, and obviously the canceled Batman game concept artist agrees.

Golan BukvicA freelance concept artist in the video game and film industry, has revealed a batch of concept art that should be the new Batman game. He also revealed the concept art of a higher-tech batsuit, somewhat similar to Batman Beyond’s suit.

Bukvic’s credits include Gears 4 and 5, Halo 4, Tomb Raider, and film productions such as Jurassic World 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy.

About him ArtStation, Bukvic states that Batman’s concept art was done for a game that was canceled “long ago.”About him LinkedIn, Bukvic cites in his many credits a canceled game called “Batman: The Dark Knight” and a stint at Warner Brothers Montreal in 2015 and 2016.

Bukvic may explain that it has been cancelled 2006 PS3 / Xbox 360 games With the same name. The game was released by EA and was developed by Pandemic Studios (Star Wars Battlefront, Destroy All Humans) as a tie-in with Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight movie, which began before filming began.

Concept art may also have come from Bukvich’s time at Warner Bros. Pictures, which licensed Batman video games from EA. Bukvic worked on an unreleased game from April to September 2015, then returned from June 2016 to October 2016 to work on the character design for the “Unreleased AAA Title”.

Its timeline matches the rumored canceled sequel to Arkham Knight. Previous leak Players have shown to bury Damian Wayne’s shoes, which will take over the aged Bruce Wayne. Interestingly, one of the leaked information was that the new Batcycle would be a drivable vehicle. Bukvic’s art also includes sophisticated motorcycles that certainly meet the bill.

Gotham Knights, WB Montreal’s next Batman project, is unlikely to bring Bukvich’s art to life. Gotham Knights is currently scheduled to be released in 2022. The official Gotham Knights pitch is that Batman’s disciples (Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin, Red Hood) gather to defeat the Illuminati-like Court of Owls after Batman’s death. As you know, cartoon heroes tend not to stay dead, so there’s probably room for bearded bats in the end.
