At the 2nd annual The Game Awards, Telltale along with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment announced an interactive episodic game based on the Dark Knight himself, Batman. The game is set to premiere in 2016 and does not have an official title as of yet.
“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 done justice to the titles it has been licensed already, so there’s no doubt in my mind that Batman will be a great addition. I’m just hoping the series will also take the time to focus to branch out on other characters in the world of Batman. Maybe Detective Gordon? Or Penguin?
