Telltale Games, with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, today announced an interactive episodic game series based on DC Comics’ iconic Batman™ that is set to premiere in 2016. The official title for the Telltale series is yet to be revealed, but it has pumped fans for yet another Telltale adventure. We’ve had the "Walking Dead," "Game of Thrones," "Back To the Future," "Jurassic Park," and "Minecraft" brought to our screens by the teams at TellTale, and it was quite possibly just a matter of time before the world of comics was explored. It has previously been circulated that TellTale and Marvel have struck a deal to release a title in 2017.
The episodic game series will premiere digitally on home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices. Specific platform details are yet to be announced.
At TellTale, we’ve been honoured 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. 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. Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of TellTale Games
2016 will quite possibly be one of TellTale’s biggest years as they are set to launch four titles. The highly anticipated “Walking Dead: Michonne,” the continuation of a desperate world in “Game Of Thrones: Season Two,” the return of arguably TellTale’s biggest franchise with “The Walking Dead: Season 3 and the addition of “TellTale: Batman”
TellTale has an established track record of creating award-winning content for some of the best properties in the world. 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. David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
Batman was revealed on-stage at The Game Awards 2015 in Los Angeles, the full announcement teaser trailer will be available for online viewing later this week.
