After releasing several high quality titles including The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, The Wolf Among Us, Minecraft: Story Mode and Tales from the Borderlands, Telltale Games is now developing an episodic Batman game which will debut in 2016.
Similar to the previous games in Telltale's collection, the upcoming title will follow a choose-your-own-adventure role playing strategy, to allow players to live and experience the life of Bruce Wayne, both as Gotham's billionaire and as the city's costumed vigilante. Telltale Games' CEO, Kevin Bruner had the following to say:
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. 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.”
The specific details of the game; including the possibility of Batman's companions such as Nightwing and Catwoman making an appearance is unknown. Similarly, the names of the villains included in the game are undisclosed as of yet, but the CEO of Warner Bros. Interactive has promised a "rich narrative", stating that:
Telltale has an established track record of creating award-winning content for some of the best properties in the world. 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 company has announced that the full teaser trailer for the game will be available online later this week. The first chapter of the episodic adventure will hit consoles, PCs, Macs and mobile devices in 2016
