During last night’s second annual edition of The Game Awards, Telltale Games annouced that they’ve partnered with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment to deliver an episodic Batman game in 2016.
“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.”
Specific platforms have yet to be announced but it will release digitally on home consoles, mobile devices and PC/MAC.
“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.”
The studio has yet to reveal an official title for the game and details are scarce at the moment. For now, we’ll have to make do with the teaser below.
