Warner Bros. will host a digital event called DC FanDome this summer featuring new announcements from its games, film and TV, and comics divisions.
Starting at 10am PT / 6pm BST on Saturday, August 22 and running for 24 hours, the event is billed as the “largest gathering of talent, announcements and content reveals in the history of DC”.
Accessible via DCFanDome.com, it will also include panels, exclusive screenings and never-before-seen footage.
Prior to the show’s cancellation, WB Games was reportedly lining up a trio of high-profile reveals for what would have been its first ever E3 conference this month.
These are said to have included a new Batman title, an open-world Harry potter game, and the next project from Batman Arkham developer Rocksteady Studios.
After more than seven months of teasing a Batman game reveal, Arkham Origins studio WB Games Montreal recently told fans to “stay tuned” to its social channels.
According to CNBC, Take-Two, Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard have all expressed interest in buying the gaming division from Warner’s parent company AT&T in a deal that could fetch around $4 billion.
If a sale were to go through, many of the Warner Bros. IP tied to in-development games, such as Harry Potter and Batman, would not be part of the acquisition but could be licensed, the publication’s sources said.
