Telltale has made a name for itself working on licenses like The Walking Dead and Jurassic Park, and if it ever goes down the original property line it will probably do so with a media partner.
Speaking to GameInformer, TellTale Games CEO Dan Connors said he expects the company will work on an original IP one day, but it’s “still a ways away”.
“I think we’ll do it in partnership with somebody else,” he said.
“Maybe Gabe Newell and J.J. Abrams stole our thunder of a great Hollywood and games marriage, but I think we see ourselves, if we’re going to create another franchise, we’re going to do it with someone who has a lot of experience and a lot of talent from a storytelling standpoint.
“We’re going to provide the interactive piece, and we’re going to bring the strengths of movies and games together and create something that’s bigger than the two.
“It just has to happen; it’s just inevitable. We always like to try and make those things happen. That will be something we’d be super interested in. I think that’s going to happen.”
Connors has made comments in the past about liking the idea of a TV series and a tie-in game interacting in some way; it’s something MMO Defiance has attracted a lot of attention for.
TellTale’s current project is a long awaited adaptation of Fables.
