Telltale Games, the people behind story driven, choose-your adventure style games like The Walking Dead game, A Wolf Among Us, and Back to the Future, are delving into something a bit darker. The company, known for their episodic, contemporary games that are reminiscent of the point-and-click adventure era of PC gaming, will be taking on Batman next.
In a press release, Telltale CEO Kevin Bruner talked about the new game, which was announced during The Game Awards.
“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. “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.”
“Telltale has an established track record of creating award-winning content for some of the best properties in the world,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “We look forward to working with the team as they deliver a new interactive way for fans and gamers to experience the rich narrative world of Batman.”
While the official trailer and even game name has not been released, there was an announcement video showed during the awards show.
