So this little item dropped out of nowhere last night! At The Game Awards 2015 in LA yesterday, Telltale, the people behind the epic Walking Dead and Game of Thrones games announced they are teaming up with DC Comics to make a Batman Game! I can already hear my Geektown Radio co-host Ross head exploding with excitement. ;)
“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.”
Batman: A Telltale Game Series will be an episodic game series premiering on home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices some time in 2016.
