The multiple game-of-the-year award winning developers at Telltale are bringing their talents to Gotham City. That’s right, the people behind the hugely successful The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Borderlands, and Wolf Among Us games will be releasing another episodic, choice-driven series following the Caped Crusader. The game is set to release in 2016 and, if it’s anything like their other interactive adventure games, it is sure to delight gamers and Batman fans alike. I for one cannot wait for this.
“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.” Excited yet?
