Episodic adventure game developer Telltale just keeps climbing up and up the ladder in the minds and eyes of just about everyone. A successful Monkey Island game landed them the Back to the Future gig. This success led the smaller studio into the limelight with The Walking Dead and Fables, and the reception from those scored them the hulkarian job of making a Game of Thrones game and a Minecraft spin-off.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any bigger… Batman. Telltale confirmed at The Game Awards that it will be developing an episodic take on The Dark Knight himself. Somebody come stop me from sequealing.
“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 Telltale co-founder and CEO Kevin Bruner.
“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.”
Seriously, how high does the ladder go for this company? Will we eventually be getting that dreamy Star Wars game we all want? We’ll have to see just how well Batman does when it launches in 2016.
