Telltale Games are developing an interactive episodic game series based on DC Comic’s Batman, it was revealed last night.
Revealed on-stage at The Game Awards, Telltale Games, who have developed hit games on series such as Game of Thrones, Back to the Future, and others, will develop the title set for a release in 2016.
“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, in an accompanying press release.
“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.”
Whilst no official title has been announced yet it will be released digitally on home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices. Specific platforms are yet to be announced.
“Telltale has an established track record of creating award-winning content for some of the best properties in the world,” added 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.”
