Telltale Announces A New Batman Game


Telltale Games just announced a new Batman episodic series for 2016

Well, after Arkham Knight we were wondering what Batman’s next video game adventure would be, and it was announced at this year’s Game Awards!

In what will most likely be a very different game from the Arkham Series, Telltale Games, best known for games based on franchises such as Walking Dead, Game of Thrones & Borderlands announced that they are working a a episodic game based on Batman for release in 2016.

No real further details have been revelead about the game, but Telltale Games did release a statement via their website:

"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."

As highly acclaimed as the Arkham games are, a couple things they get fair criticism for is not only completely ignoring the aspect of being Bruce Wayne, but also not really doing much to feel like the world’s greatest detective. Telltale Game’s focus on more narrative-based gameplay should allow for a much better exploration of that aspect of the Caped Crusader. The untitled Batman game is due out for PC and consoles sometime next year, and of course we’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
