Batman is the most recent franchise that Telltale has pulled under its expanding umbrella, and after exactly a year of waiting, we finally have our first look at the studio’s spin with the Dark Knight.
This Batman game will be released over five episodes, like most Telltale releases, but it will not star legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy. Instead, Telltale Games has turned to the talents of veteran voice actor Troy Baker to add his name to the list of actors who have portrayed Batman.
Baker actually played The Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins, so the connection is already there.
We’ve been hard at work at Telltale creating an all-new iteration of the iconic Batman story that puts players in the suit of billionaire Bruce Wayne, just as much as it will put them behind the mask, deciding how to carefully navigate a complex drama, rich with action, crime, corruption, and villainy lurking around every corner of Gotham City. The complex life and fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne has lent itself to becoming a bold evolution of the signature ‘Telltale’ role-playing experience, and we couldn’t be more excited as we prepare to debut the series to players across the world this summer.
Telltale didn’t set a specific date, but it has announced that Batman should begin distribution later this summer.
