The Game Awards 2015 promised us news, and it delivered.
Telltale is making a Batman game.
We know this because we were shown a short trailer that dripped Bruce Wayne, leading into a Batman logo, leading into a Telltale logo and then a 2016 launch window.
No other details are available just yet, but what else do you need? Telltale has done such a good job with every other licensed property in the last few years – even Minecraft, which many people thought would be impossible – that we don’t need to hear anything else. Bring it on.
Here’s official word on it from Telltale:
“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.”
An official title for the episodic Telltale series is yet to be revealed, but it will come to home consoles, PC, Mac, and mobile devices.
