Batman writer Scott Snyder has announced that he will be leaving the title with April's #51. The writer revealed it in an interview with ComicVine discussing what readers can expect with March's Batman #50.
"Just that Greg [Capullo] and I have had a blast together on this run. It’s our second to last issue together. 51 is my last issue as well on Batman," Snyder said. "For me, 50 is the quiet issue and 51 is really just a letter to the fans from us and a letter to Batman. It’s the lightest I’ve ever written. Not lightest as in happy but light as in not as many panels per page. It’s really really open. It’s a chance for Greg to draw the close before we take our break. 50 we wanted to be the opposite. We wanted it to be the most explosive, jam-packed sort of blockbuster crazed issue we’ve ever done. I hope it delivers in that regard."
Snyder posted on Twitter that he's currently writing Batman #51.

Capullo is leaving Batman to work on an as-yet-untitled creator-owned project with Mark Millar, but has confirmed that both he and Snyder have said they'll be working on an undisclosed DC project afterwards.
