In an official blog entry, Telltale Games, with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, have announced Batman will get his own episodic game series.
While the official title for the game has yet to be revealed, the game featuring The Dark Knight is expected in 2016. Though set to premiere digitally on home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices, specific platform details have yet to be announced.
“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.” Telltale Games is the studio behind the critically-acclaimed Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones games.
The untitled game 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, and we will provide updates as details develop.
