Telltale Games announces Batman Series, and it’s coming in 2016

Telltale Games are working on an episodic series featuring the Dark Knight himself.

The first big announcement to come out of last night’s Game Awards was the announcement of a Batman title by developer Telltale Games.

Telltale’s Batman was announced with a short, comic-inspired trailer featuring a short narration, which presumably describes the Dark Knight.

“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.”

We know very little about the game, but assume it will follow the episodic format Telltale is renown for.

You could potentially play as Batman, or a new original character created by Telltale. We know none of this yet, but we can’t wait to find out.

Expect to make big decisions and find yourself face to face with Gotham’s biggest and baddest villains.

Telltale Games are responsible for a number of episodic titles inspired by franchises such as Minecraft, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones.
