A new episodic Batman video game wasn’t the only thing Telltale showed off at The Game Awards 2015. The award winning studio also revealed that their upcoming three part mini-series starring Michonne, will now release in February of next year instead of this month.
When it was first announced, Telltale Games stated that players would be required to have at least completed the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two, in order to play the mini-series. Now that will no longer be the case as Telltale’s Head of creative Communications, Job Stauffer has confirmed via Twitter, that Michonne “will now be a stand-alone series”.
Confirmed: You *will* get your 1st look at TWD:Michonne @thegameawards. It won't premiere this month, but will now be a stand-alone series.
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.
According to listing on Best Buy’s website, Telltale Game’s ‘Game of Thrones’ series will be releasing on disc this fall. The physical copies of the first season are priced at $29.99, with a November 17th release date.
Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are also getting a retail release.
This listing comes as no surprise since wouldn’t be the first time a game from Telltale made the jump from digital to retail, their Walking Dead series and The Wolf Among Us have all received physical releases. They were also all outed by various retailers before TTG finally released an official statement.
No official announcement from Telltale has been made yet. Episodes 1-5 are out now for PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, iOS and Android devices.

The first episode for Telltale Games’ upcoming Game of Thrones adaptation is almost upon us. Despite that, no one knew what the game or its characters looked like, as Telltale has been keeping it a close guarded secret. Well that may have just changed, thanks to twitter account @lifelower, whose description reads, “XBLA Watchdog! Exploring for upcoming XBLA & putting them on the release calendar.”
The account has shared the eight screens below.
Telltale Games has not confirmed the legitimacy of these photos, nor have they denied them, so for now take them with a grain of salt. If these screens are faux, then whoever created them did a very impressive job, combining Telltale’s signature art style with the look of the popular HBO show.
Episode one of six, “Iron From Ice” is due out before the end of this year for PS4, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC/Mac and iOS. Stay tuned for more details.
Halo 4 the game itself didn’t conclude and is still growing strong with the new handlers 343. Now the final episode of Season 1 of Spartan Ops came out yesterday and it was surprising what they did now I wont go into spoilers on this but will give points on what’s good with Spartan ops and how to make season 2 and possibly 3 better and if they continue it into Halo 5.
Now the first 5 episodes had you going back and fourth between locations the cinematics were really good though. But it felt kind of rushed at points for the missions some were just rescuing marines or many other things like that. The first half of the season was mediocre but when the second half hit it felt like a Halo campaign. They did a better job making the Cinematics have more to do with the missions for example episode 6, episode 7 and episode 10 did the best job at this and they tried to put new locations in every week but it was still the same sometimes. But it ended with a bang and so many more questions than answers and big answers from the campaign that we still don’t know about.
They did a good job at storytelling though Ill give them that I’m all for episodic gaming take The Walking Dead for example. But they can make this better with making the missions maps for a new firefight mode, new locations every single week, more interaction with Crimson, more main villains, Boss fights (real boss fights), and longer cinematics.
Now that’s all I have to say right now about Spartan Ops ill be looking for info on Season 2. Now as a whole I will give Spartan Ops Season 1 an 8 out of 10 its good but needs improvement. This has been a RealGamerNewz and Tristans Twisted World Review stay Real people.
