Telltale Games, with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, have announced an interactive episodic game series based on DC Comics’ iconic Batman that is set to premiere in 2016. The episodic game series will premiere digitally on home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices.
“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 an established track record of creating award-winning content for some of the best properties in the world,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “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.”
While the Arkham series has, so far, been the most successful interpretation of Batman and all of his skills, it’s exciting to hear that a company with the reputation of Telltale will be able to explore the Bat-universe. I expect not only some great storytelling, with it being Telltale and all, but also a greater exploration of Batman’s detective abilities.
