As if Telltale haven’t got enough on their plate with new The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and Marvel games on the way, they now also announced that they’re working on a Batman game series, set for release sometime in 2016.
Allowing players assume the role of the Batman in what will assuredly be a less action-packed experience than Rocksteady’s Arkham series, Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games states: “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.”
Whilst it will be nice to play a game that takes a different approach to the Batman universe, we just hope that Telltale iron out the issues with their game engine, or better still, create a new one. Batman deserves the best after all!
