At the 2015 Game Awards, Telltale Games announced that it was working on a Batman game. Scheduled for release in 2016, the untitled game will continue in Telltale's line of trademark interactive episode game series like Fables: A Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead.
“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.”
The Batman came will reportedly debut as a digital game for "home consoles," PC, Mc, as well as mobile devices; Telltale didn't specify exact details on which "home consoles" the game would come to.
“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.”
A teaser trailer was shown on-site at the Game Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, and Telltale has said it will debut online later this week.
