Telltale Games is going to be making a Batman game. Telltale Games’ website promises that a teaser trailer will be online within the week.
‘At Telltale, we’ve been honored to bring our unique approach to interactive storytelling to some of the biggest entertainment franchises in the world, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll soon be exploring what it means to be Batman in an all-new series starting next year,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games.
He goes on to say, “This iteration of Batman will give fans a first-hand opportunity to dive deeper into the complex life and mind of Bruce Wayne, the duality of his own identity, and the struggle of responsibility in saving a city overcome with corruption and villainy.’
There are always headliner games that steal the spotlight, like Star Wars Battlefront and Fallout 4. The media focuses on large titles like these because they grab all of the attention. The studios behind such games are the rock stars of the gaming industry. Then you have studios like Telltale Games, who steadily and quietly produce solid games. Telltale Games specialize in episodic, story heavy games. They are the reliable specialists of the gaming industry.
At some point, people started to realise that TellTale was a quality game developer. ‘Back to the Future: The Game’ showed what TellTale could do when they got their hands on a popular franchise. TellTale was handed the reins to other big franchises. The two biggest, up until now, have been The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. Both of which covered events outside of the main focus of the series. However, one of the trademark elements of their games is that your choices will shape the course of the game.
So, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones are big things right now, but when is Telltale Games going to get to tackle a long-running, super popular franchise?
2016, that’s when.
