Telltale Games has announced that it will be coming out with an episodic game series for Batman with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
Set to be released in 2016, the series will follow others done by Telltale Games, like Minecraft Story Mode, Tales from the Borderlands, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us and Back to the Future The Game.
"At Telltale, we've been honored to bring our unique approach to interactive storytelling to some of the biggest entertainment franchises in the world," said Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games, adding that the studio is excited at the opportunity to explore the meaning of Batman in the new series.
No details have been released yet but it can be assumed that the game series will make use of Telltale's usual system, which allows players to take charge of the story and see the consequences of their actions play out across episodes. Bruner has added, however, that the version of Batman that will be seen in the Telltale Games series will give fans the first-hand chance to explore the mind and life of the Caped Crusader as he deals with the struggles of saving a city steeped in villainy and corruption.
According to David Haddad, president for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, they are looking forward to working with Telltale Games as the studio has established a track record for producing award-winning content for some of the world's best properties.
