Rumor: Telltale about to unveil Walking Dead game, four other new titles

The massively popular Walking Dead TV show may be shambling out of the spotlight until Halloween, but Telltale’s dropped a pretty big hint that you won’t be at a lack for officially licensed, AMC-owned zombies for too much longer.

In a February 17 event invitation received by 1UP, Telltale teased five soon-to-be-announced games, one of which is “based on a just-launched property from the TV and comic book world whose popularity is changing life as some know it.” Sounds like a dead ringer for Walking Dead to us.

Happily, gory blast-’em-ups aren’t really Telltale’s style, so you probably don’t need to worry that the developer will turn Walking Dead into something it isn’t. If that is indeed what Telltale’s teasing, then it’s in good hands. Best of all, though, this thing’s a slogan goldmine. After all, who wouldn’t want to advertise with surefire hits like “dead men tell no tales unless Telltale’s telling tales about dead men”? Go ahead, Telltale. That one’s on the house.
